I enjoyed visiting Dari-Delite, but after hearing so much about the 'greatest chicken fingers ever' from both reviewers online and some of the local folks, I came away with a little different opinion.
The fingers were good, even very good...but they did not push the boundaries of "great' for me. The fries were nothing special at all. The restaurant has a great old-school atmosphere and the staff are friendly enough.
I wouldn't make a special trip for the fingers, but if I were passing through it is definitely a better option than ANY of the fast food chain options around!
I am craving some deep fried goodness. If I was in Hartselle, AL this evening, I would be partaking of some chicken fingers from Dari-Delite. Their chicken fingers are the best I have ever had. I am not sure what is in the breading and batter, but I am here to tell you that they are addictive. This place has been in Hartselle ever since I can remember, and it was the first place that I ever even knew served chicken fingers.
Anytime I fly to my hometown, we always have to take a ride over to Hartselle to get some. The last time I visited was over Christmas holidays, and I swear those chicken fingers are as good as the first time that I had them. Why am I writing this? I am in Arizona, and if I can't have their chicken fingers tonight at least I can write about them. Â Dari-Delite is worth the car trip to Hartselle.
This is another childhood favorite of mine.
When I talk to friends back home and say... hey what do you think of Dari Delite chicken fingers.. All you get is Ooooo the chicken fingers....
I know it seems odd that you can make so many drool over something as easy as chicken fingers but this is the basic little restaurant with outstanding chicken fingers. Spiced well with a perfectly cooked layer of crust. I honestly cant tell you at all what else they have here... the reason to go to this place is the chicken fingers!
