With a little fine tuning this new spot from the Bromberg brothers could be excellent. The first time I stopped by the tenders were soggy and oily. But on subsequent visits the wings have been crispy and the Blue Bird sandwich has become one of my favorite chicken sandwiches around. I like the seasoning on the tenders and wings, but remember the crust being thicker and crunchier at Brooklyn Bowl, which is also owned by the Bromberg brothers. 

A kid’s meal only comes with one tender. I wish they used a more mild seasoning for the kid’s meals. My guy didn’t care for the spices, heavy on the paprika. While I do like this place, prices are too high for a fast casual spot to make me a frequent visitor. The 2 piece tender meal didn’t fill me up and that was around $12 for the meal plus a drink. I understand the quality is higher than fast food spots, but I can’t spend $15 or more on lunch on a regular basis. If I bring the family the price triples. The best bargain is the lunchbox special (available M-F 11am-4pm) which includes 5 wings, fries, and a drink.

A welcome addition to Downtown Summerlin, Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken brings a refined take on fast casual dining. But, the relatively high prices will make it tough to compete with other fast food spots in their market.
