Joey Smalls is an exciting diner / bar space oozing of cool vibes on Sydney Rd. Its also home to groovy tunes and drinks going till late on the weekends.
One thing that is truly amazing is the food. It totally ticks the box on the Melbourne Fried Chicken scene and has lots of other tasty dishes such as burgers and tacos.
We haven’t been here for a while but on our visit back it was clearly evident that the masterminds behind this place still know how to dish up an amazing fried chook.
The fried chicken is cooked up southern style and served as tenders coming in either a half or full serve. It came out hot, steamy and juicy with perfect crunch and all the right spices. The sidekick sauces were really good too (go for the honey mustard for the that sweet win).
While the chicken was great lets not forget about the awesome juicy burger and the crispy onion rings.
All in all, Joey Smalls still has all the right tastes and vibes and we will definitely be back for more!
