Out and About: Lunch at Huey Magoo’s in Dr. Phillips .. @HueyMagoos #OrlandoEats #DiningReview

Huey Magoo's

I love a good chicken tender meal, so I was happy to join fellow blogger Anna-Marie (@BeautyandtheBeets) for lunch at Huey Magoo’s Dr. Phillips location.

Neither of us had been to a Huey Magoo’s before, and decided to share a little of everything.

To start with, you can get the tenders made three ways: grilled (after marinating for 24 hours for maximum flavor); hand-breaded and fried; or hand-breaded, fried and sauced.

From there, you can choose from a variety of dipping sauces, or have the tenders in a sandwich, wrap, or salad.

We started with just the chicken.

The grilled version had so much flavor, it didn’t even need sauce. But it paired well with the house-made ranch.

The hand-breaded chicken tenders were nicely crunchy. Anna-Marie enjoyed one with the Signature Magoo’s Dip (I couldn’t try this because it had Worcestershire sauce in it and I have a seafood allergy). I thought they paired great with the sweet chili sauce and the garlic parmesean sauce.

Finally, sauced. We got ours with Buffalo sauce, and they came out with just the right amount for flavor but not so much it was messy eating them.

From there we tried them sandwiched – three huge tenders per sandwich – and wrapped. We tried both the grilled unsauced and hand-breaded Buffalo sauced versions and both were delicious, with just the right amount of vegetation.

I have to also note that I enjoyed a watermelon sweetened tea with my meal. It sounded strange, but paired really well with the savory and spicy notes of the food. It was kinda like a summer picnic feeling.

And the best part of dining at Huey Magoo’s? A tasty chicken tender feast can be had for under $10 a person.

Wallet-friendly and delicious? You’ve got to give Huey Magoo’s a try!
