You can smell Ervin’s Chicken before you even turn off of W. Adams Ave. Fried chicken is another one of those foods I remember from my childhood. Mom soaked each piece in salt water, rolled it in flower, and then dropped in the griddle. The entire house filled with the smell of goodness.
In fact, I am pretty sure that unless the result is too dry or not battered well, I’m going to give it a thumbs-up. (Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have my favorites; like this place in Round Top, Texas with buttermilk-soaked fried chicken. Soooo goood.)
Ervin’s serves some pretty savory bird. When I visited, I grabbed their 8-piece mixed family dinner with mashed potatoes and corn fritters. I received large helpings of chicken, biscuits, gravy and mashed potatoes. The corn fritters came in a smaller quantity – but were so worth it. I spent about $17 and was able to get at least a few meals out of it.
They are open until ten and offer sandwiches, wraps and fish in addition to their fried chicken. Next time you are wanting or needing something quick and easy, I suggest giving Ervin’s a shot.
