Deep-frying gained popularity on mountain expeditions, when adventurers breaded and deep-fried mittens to stave off frostbite and create a tasty last-resort meal. Chomp into some life-sustaining sustenance with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bite-sized chicken dishes, homestyle sides, and drinks at Rex’s Bite Size Chicken.
Rex’s Bite Size Chicken is known for its bite-sized, always-crispy, and ever-boneless fried-chicken chunks. A basket of the hand-cut, hand-breaded bitable bits ($6.99) comes in original or spicy jalapeno varieties and is accompanied by a homestyle side—such as green beans, fried okra, or baked beans—and signature frybread, a flat, deep-fried pillow-like dough accompanied by honey stolen from lackadaisical bears. Alternately, let your chicken nap on a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions ($6.99), slip between a bun ($7.29), or jump into a hoagie drizzled with Rex's own sauce ($7.69). The menu offers ample poulet possibilities, including the SUV package ($37.99), a 2.5-pound bucket of chicken chunks with three one-pint sides and two baskets of frybread, shareable among up to six eaters or with a two-mouthed buddy. Guests can further sweeten their palates with confections from Freshberry Frozen Yogurt or Smallcakes, located in the same space.
