I’d like to introduce all of you to a new feature on Arkansas Foodies: the Quick Bite. We try a lot of different things, but we don’t always have enough material for a full restaurant review – which is a shame, because there are plenty of times where we eat something tasty that’s worth sharing. The Quick Bite solves that problem, because this feature is limited to reviewing just one dish from a local restaurant. So without further expository nonsense, let’s get on with the inaugural Quick Bite: the Sticky Fingerz Sammich.
This sandwich takes what Stickyz does best – fried chicken fingers – and crams them into a hoagie roll with mozzarella and cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and what the menu calls “creamy dill dressing” (and what us normals call “ranch”). It’s simple, completely unchallenging to the palate – and completely delicious. The chicken is moist and juicy, breaded just right and fried to a crisp. The bread is substantial and holds up well beneath the weight of all that chicken and cheese but it doesn’t get in the way of the flavors. It’s a good, solid chicken sandwich; and for under eight bucks, it’s a great deal. Add a batch of fries with it if only to experience the spicy ketchup.
Stickyz Rock n’ Roll Chicken Shack is located at 107 River Market Avenue in the Little Rock River Market. In addition to the kickin’ chicken, they’ve been known to have a show or two. Enjoy!
