We’ve heard praise for The Point’s homemade fried chicken dinner, available Wednesday nights. We show up to a packed house, and see plate after plate of golden brown deliciousness leave the kitchen. Each plate comes with a thigh, drumstick and breast, served with coleslaw, mashed potatoes and gravy and when we visit, corn on the cob. It’s a lot for $10. The chicken bears coating that, while not the crispest, holds a biscuit-like crumbliness with a goodly amount of seasoning — we pick out cayenne pepper and seasoned salt. Both thigh and drumstick chew tender and juicy, but the breast arrives boneless and skinless, which means at the thickest part it’s dry. Salty gravy and limp, underseasoned coleslaw underwhelm, though the potatoes and corn do fine. We also try a Bacon Blue Burger, which comes piled mighty high with pickles, tomatoes, onions and lettuce. Thin bacon makes its contribution in flavor, not texture, and there’s plenty of cheese, making for a decent burger.
