I rarely order chicken fingers because I always think that they are something that kids or really bad dates eat. However, I got a sheet of Hardee’s coupons and noticed that they have Buffalo Chicken fingers featuring Frank’s Red Hot sauce. I am a big fan of Frank’s Red Hot sauce. I like a few dashes in my mac and cheese, eggs, you name it.
What I Ate: Hand Breaded Buffalo Chicken fingers; small combo was $5.60 ($3.99 with coupon)
Upon opening the box, they were not messing around with the sauce. The fingers were doused in it. On a “Grubbing on the Go” scale (via Grub Grade) I would give these a zero. They are actually served with a fork and knife. I really thought highly on the quality of the tender though as the meat looked exactly how it should and not very processed. As a comparison, the breading was thinner than the Prime Cut tender at Arby’s. However, the problem is that the sauce didn’t allow any crunch from the breading to carry through as the breading was soft. As a quick note, the tenders were served with standard ranch.
Would I Buy It Again? I would try them again, but they need to have crunchy breading for this to work. For a fast food chicken finger, I thought the quality was on point. If I was to get anything Buffalo from Hardee’s, I would probably go with a sandwich instead. I didn’t love them, but I also didn’t hate them. However, if I need a Frank’s Red Hot fix, this would work.
