I hadn't seen a Mary Browns since I was a teen so we had to stop and get a couple pieces just for nostalgia sake. I think it was as remembered, it was a long time ago.

We ordered an 8-piece meal, which included large taters and/or fries. Admittedly a lot of food for two! While we enjoyed the indulgence, the chicken was not as good as I expected, because it was not very crispy. The taters were tasty. The coleslaw was way too creamy.

Dropped by Saturday night while visiting Gander and found the staff to be most courteous and friendly. Order was processed quickly and food was fresh and very tasty.

If you want something fast and easy then go here. Just like Kentucky Fried, but no spices in the breading. The fries were good, chicken was super greasy.

I ordered 3 finger meal for take out. Service at take out was good. The fingers were delicious. The taters were much too SALTY. I would have preferred to add my own seasoning. I wasn't offered a dipping sauce. Not sure if that is extra but it would have been nice to have been offered. I forgot to request same.

Being from the south, I know fried chicken and this one doesn't stand up to my taste test. The chicken wasn't really crispy and the cole slaw was a bit sweet so the meal wasn't what I would like. It was however convenient to my hotel and I was tired.

Mary Brown's Fried Chicken is a fast food chain that runs across Newfoundland. We ended up eating at four of them spread across the province during our trip. Their main chicken sandwich was terrific and tasty. My wife enjoyed their well battered fries. Reasonable fast food prices.

We ate here after arriving late in the day at our hotel. It was within convenient walking distance of the Comfort Inn, where we were staying. The food was tasty and the service was friendly.
