Sometimes you’re craving fried chicken and there’s no stopping that feeling until you sink your teeth into that crispy coating and taste that juicy chicken.
One of Vancouver’s essential fried chicken spots recently expanded to include a second location. Hi Five Chicken opened its second Lower Mainland location in Burnaby at Crest Plaza, 8669 10th Ave., in September.
Here you can order your chicken up baked or fried, spicy or regular, and with all sorts of sides, like plump potato wedges, slaw, and even deep fried mac and cheese bites. Hi Five also makes chicken strips, wings, nuggets, and chicken sandwiches, and they also offer a kids’ meal. Their chicken comes in a variety of combos, too.
As a bonus, you can heed the call anytime: They’re open around the clock.
Seating is limited, so you’ll probably want to plan on taking your chicken to go. Earlier this fall, a stop by the Vancouver location was ideal before hitting up a near-by drive-in movie down at the River District to test-drive their classic fried chicken. And since they’re open 24/7, you can eat yours whenever, and wherever, you want.

Fried regular chicken combo, home style spicy sandwich (fried) and fiesta bold poppers ????| Finally tried this fried chicken joint in the neighbourhood. Fried chicken was tasty and good with hot sauce, so make sure to ask for that! The combo came with fountain drink and wedge fries – and dang they were the best wedges I’ve ever had, crispy AND airy. I don’t usually opt for them as sides, as I find them heavy. Sandwich was great overall; really appreciated the veggies. The fiesta poppers were essentially bell peppers with melty cheese and battered + deep fried. If you like that sort of thing it’s worth trying, but it wasn’t for me. This place is open 24/7 and within walking distance (uh oh). Would return to try their other signature sandwiches and enjoy their wedges again? . . . #friedchicken #fries #cheatday #iseveryday #pepperpoppers #hifivechicken ##yvreats #vancityeats #vancouver #vancouvereats #foodstagram #foodshot #foodie #igfoodie #igfood #vancouverfoodie #vanfoodie #eatvancouver #eatingout
