University Chicken Sports Pub - Santa Clara (closed)

4/5 stars

ATMOSPHERE: I went to SCU so University Chicken (formally the more cleverly titled "Cluck U") is a familiar hotspot. It oozes "college" with its pitchers of beer, hot wings, and sticky tabletops. It's not very big and doesn't look anything like a sports bar to me... gots a couple of big screens, a foosball table, and some video games - I never really hung out here, but usually just grabbed and go. 

FOOD: Good and greasy - just what it's supposed to be. The wings are the stars here. Fried and then drowned in their lipsmackin', orange n' tangy - how spicy can you take it - sauce. The mild is extremely mild and the hottest hot will make your tongue shrivel up and die. Comes topped with celery and ranch for dipping. 6 wings are only $3.99! CASH ONLY, though! I also like the nachos - the biggest, the Senior order - is made with grilled chicken, shredded cheese, black beans, sour cream, guac (tastes like its from Costco, but this isn't a Mexican place so I'm not complaining), and tons of tomatoes and jalapenos. Another win are the chicken sandwiches... fried (I don't recommend the grilled, too dry!) and topped with a garlic spread, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and marinara sauce if you want it. Onion rings are big n' greasy good, too.
