Bellevue demanded it and now "the most life-changing chicken in America," according to Esquire Magazine, will be available to the masses on the Eastside at 1645 140th Ave NE. The quick-service fried chicken franchise will open next Friday, if everything goes according to plan says Ezell’s Founder Lewis Rudd. The new location will be modeled after the Mill Creek and Lynnwood restaurants— a larger floor plan with a 40-seat dining room.

Ezell’s fans can expect the usual menu of fried chicken and an assortment of homemade side dishes of mashed potatoes and gravy, potato salad and mac and cheese with the addition of salads and sandwiches. Sandwiches include sloppy BBQ chicken sandwich, Auntie's chicken salad sandwich and a classic crispy chicken sandwich. For a lighter fare diners can choose from a zesty Cobb salad, ranch chicken salad, chop chop BBQ chicken salad and supper salad. The restaurant will be open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

This is the 13th brick and mortar location and the 2nd on the Eastside with the other located in Woodinville.
