Southern-style Chicken Joint Winner Winner Is Now Open In Paddington

Brisbane's love affair with cooked chooks continues.

Paddington's new eatery has opened its doors, and everyone is a winner. And if you're wondering what that prize just might be, like plenty of places these days, it's all there in the name. What else could a restaurant called Winner Winner offer its diners?

You guessed it: Southern chicken dinners are the main attraction at 233A Given Terrace. Of course they are. To be specific, Winner Winner serves up Nashville-style pieces, which traditionally means fried chicken that has been marinated in seasoning and coated in a cayenne pepper paste. Kentucky, eat your heart out.

As well as a "Love Me Tender" neon sign that turns an Elvis lyric into a poultry pun, Winner Winner boasts its own secret recipe, because all the best chicken places do. Think wings, drumsticks, tenders, dark meat, burgers and entire birds, available in three heat ratings, and with six varieties of sauce. Sides-wise, expect shoestring and curly fries, sweet potato chips, onion rings, slaw, pickles, chicken bite and something called porn corn.

You'll also find a list of local craft brews and wines to round things out; you can't devour some finger lickin' goodness without a beverage to match, after all. And, with a rotisserie chicken joint long-rumoured to be headed to Milton too, Brissie's love affair with poultry keeps on cooking.

Find Winner Winner 233A Given Terrace, Paddington. For more information, check out their website and Facebook page.
