I am here to declare Purbird's chicken burger is possibly the best on the planet. Or, at least the best I've ever tasted. Instead of dry, ground chicken which I've come to expect from a chicken burger, this patty is made up of small chunks that are moist and juicy and perfectly seasoned. Each bite is a pleasure to eat. It's served with lettuce, tomato and fried onions along with Purbird's special sauce. You can add cheese, but it really isn't necessary.
Purbird's flame-grilled chickens are also getting high marks. The birds are raised on an Amish farm free of hormones and antibiotics. You can buy half a chicken or whole ($8.95/$15.95). They should also consider adding a quarter chicken to the menu with one side as an option.
The restaurant is also serving up chicken wraps with tomato, cabbage and pickled onions ($6.25), and a chicken breast sandwiches ($6.95) with avocado and bacon. There are chicken pie patties ($4.75) and Purbird's homemade chicken soup ($5.50).
You will also find outside dining when the weather permits and free wifi. The restaurant has a prime corner location. Let's just say Purbird is a pure pleasure.
