Chicken Salad Chick of PCB serves chicken salads and similarly light foods in a setting where everyone can feel comfortable. 

The chicken salad has long been a staple of many family lunches and potluck meals, but Chicken Salad Chick takes the salad to a whole new level. All of the chicken salads are made fresh each day from white-meat chicken tenderloin and premium ingredients, and they all taste great.

Moreover, everyone can find an option that’s to their liking because there are over a dozen chicken salads to choose from. The menu includes Traditional, Savory, Fruity and Nutty, and Spicy categories, all of which include a few variations. Go with a well-known standby, like the Classic Carol or Barbie-Q, or try something more exotic, such as the Kickin’ Kay Lynne (which has multiple sauces) or Dixie Chick (which is loaded with onions).

These salads can be ordered by themselves, on a croissant, or as part of a Chicken Salad BLT.

For diners who want an alternative to chicken salad, there’s a host of other salad and non-salad options available. Pimento cheese and egg salad can be had alone or in a BLT, and still more choices include turkey sandwiches, pasta salad, grape salad, broccoli salad, soup, mac n’ cheese, and green salads.

Drink options consist of unsweetened iced tea, sweetened iced tea, water, soda, and lemonade, and there’s a kids’ menu offered to children 10 and under. Beautifully decorated cookies are the highlight of the dessert selection.

All of these selections are served promptly in a casual atmosphere where grown-ups and kids alike are welcome. Together, the good food, fast service, and laid-back Southern feel make this a great place for everything from a quick bite or working lunch to a prolonged meal with friends.

A few of our menu favorites at Chicken Salad Chick of PCB include:

Lauryn’s Lemon Basil
The brightest chicken salad on the menu comes with chopped pecans, lemon, and freshly cut basil. Have it on its own so that all the flavors stand out.

Sassy Scotty BLT
What type of chicken salad do you put on a BLT? One that has ranch dressing, shredded cheddar cheese, and bacon already in it. That’s the Sassy Scotty, and it’s perfectly surrounded by bread, lettuce, tomato, and even more bacon.

Pimento Cheese
A disappearing classic, pimento cheese has a small but loyal following. If you’re a fan, this is one of the few restaurants that offer it — not to mention that make it in-house. Go with the standard Pimento Cheese, or get the Spicy Pimento Cheese for some extra kick.

Grape Salad
A combination of red and white grapes is coated in a sweet cream cheese sauce and then, topped off with chopped pecans and brown sugar. The creation will have you rethinking what grapes are capable of.

Sweet Tea
When you’re at a Southern restaurant and Sweet Tea is on the menu, that’s what you get to drink. And, sweet tea is always on the menu.

Insider Tips:
– Even though chicken salads take up most of the menu, there is enough variety for any vegetarians who might be at your party. Pimento cheese, garden salads, soups, mac n’ cheese, and pasta salad are all suitable choices.
– Don’t know which chicken salad to get? There’s no need to worry about your choice. The restaurant is a lot like an ice cream parlor, in that the chicken salad is served by the scoop (when ordered alone) — and you can try samples before deciding which one you want.
