Urban Chicken - Hoboken

I'll admit, the composition of my plate is a bit off--I think I was going for a bullhorns type of thing--I'm not sure. I'm always partial to ordering out for things other than Chinese and pizza so when we ordered buffalo wing dinners from Urban Chicken I relished in the instant-satisfaction that indulging in delivery services provide.

Urban Chicken, formerly McRib's Chicken, went through a recent redesign in name and marketing, as well as menu. Our order arrived in around 40 minutes and consisted of corn bread, boneless buffalo tenders, and mashed potatoes and gravy. The mashed potatoes and gravy were nothing special, your average fast food style potatoes--comparable to the kind you get at KFC, maybe slightly above that standard. The corn bread, which is always good was also floating somewhere around par, a bit too fluffy without full-bodied, grainy and corny texture that one associates with good corn bread.

The focal point, the chicken tenders, were the logical highlight and rightfully so; very tender, moist white meat, with a proportionate amount of buffalo flavoring. I would definitely suggest this place's buffalo chicken, minus the forgettable sides. A substantial amount of food for two cost us each around $15--give or take a little considering how well you tip. Urban Chicken remains a viable choice for ordering out at night or if you're ever in the midtown Hoboken area.
