When I drove by A&W and saw the sign for the Chicken Buddy Burger I was intrigued. I am a big fan of the regular Buddy Burger, so knew I had to see what other buddy A&W had come up with. This has a buddy chicken patty, pickles, mayonnaise on the soft small bun. Like the Buddy Burger this comes in both a single and double, which is a rare treat for a chicken burger. We obviously had to try both.
The chicken seems like a pretty good quality patty. Nice visible chicken grain in the center. They are advertising it as antibiotic free. The batter was crispy and has a nice mild but present flavour. It’s somewhere in between the neutral taste of the neutral BK crispy chicken Jr. and the peppery McDonald’s Jr. chicken.
They were both slightly heavy on mayo, which I personally like but some people might not enjoy. There was 3 or 4 pickles on each sandwich. The pickles were mild and really good. I think A&W was inspired by the Chick-fil-a Chicken Sandwich that has just pickles, which McDonald’s USA has their own copy cat sandwich with it’s Southern Style Chicken Sandwich.
