If you think the restaurant name is funny, wait until you see the clever menu items.

On May 3, 2022, a new restaurant celebrated its opening on Ford Road in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. Yes, it’s a chicken restaurant. No, it’s not another Chick-fil-A. This is a divorcee themed restaurant called “Ex-Wife’s Famous Chicken”. Here is a small overview of their menu:

Ex-Wife’s Famous Chicken Sandwiches

  • Basic Chick
  • Hot chick
  • wild chick
  • Chick Boujee
  • fluffy chick

You can also enjoy cleverly named items like the Cold Hearted Slaw and Mackin’ Cheese. Side note: The ex-wife’s famous chicken is on TikTok. Here’s a video of what looks like a well-attended grand opening.

So far, the cheeky chicken restaurant has 4 out of 5 stars with 16 reviews on Yelp. Here are some of the best and worst reviews.

Madison from Dearborn Heights says she’s been there twice and loved it both times 5 Star Yelp Review,

Their honey miso butter chicken fillets are the best. They even have a chicken sandwich with the honey miso butter tenders on it. I recommend this place to all my friends. The employees are all super polite and make sure you are happy with your food. If you are thinking of trying this, do it!!!

Don from Plymouth had this to say in his 5 Star Yelp Reviews a few weeks ago,

Just tried this place today after seeing them on TikTok. Looks like they do a good combination of take out and sit down. We were there for a late lunch on Sunday. Definitely a good place for chicken.

Sam from Phoenix, Arizona thought the chicken lacked flavor and was also disappointed with the restaurant’s limited vegan options in it. 1 Star Yelp Reviews,

Nothing exciting. I had the 2pc tender combo. Chicken fillets with lemon and pink pepper. I honestly think they had to be plain as there wasn’t a layer of seasoning on them. No lemon or pink pepper taste either. They tasted like regular chicken fillets. Very tender but tasteless.

Terri from Inkster also felt that the food lacked flavor in her. 2 star yelp review,

The food was very bland…no flavor. The pink lemonade was bland too. The place was bright and clean but the cashier was dry.

Have you ever eaten at Ex-Wife? If so, let us know in the comments what you thought of the food and service. Love it or hate it, you need to give them a smart theme.
