You can be sure you will get your fill of poultry during your visit to Frankenmuth as each meal comes with multiple pieces of chicken . There are then covered in a homemade egg wash, and flour and cracker meal.
That being said, I prefer Zehnders . There’s not a lot of difference, since the Zehnder family owns both of them.
