North Las Vegas has a new home for fried chicken, offering a compact menu focused on sandwiches, fingers, and a range of spicy or mild dipping sauces.
The appropriately named North Town Chicken replaced a former 1,750-square-foot Panda Express at the North Mesa Plaza, close to the intersection of Craig Road and Scott Robinson Boulevard.
The counter-service interior features the restaurant's chicken mascot surfing, barbecuing, and lounging in a pool, surrounding a menu specializing in breaded chicken sandwiches served with coleslaw and pickles.
Priced at $12 for a sandwich or a three-piece chicken finger meal, sides include fries, potato salad, green chili, mac and cheese, and the house version of Texas toast. The sauce selection begins a with a “training wheels” heat level of ranch or blue cheese and rises up to the fiery “Spencer’s revenge.”
Also serving a kid’s meal, for dessert, North Town offers the uncommon choice of apple pie or beignets.
North Town Chicken, 1735 W. Craig Road, North Las Vegas, 702-268-7527. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Online ordering available.
