This Canadian city has a chicken joint that's also a car wash and people just love it
If you've ever had a sudden craving for fried chicken while waiting for your car to be cleaned, this Canadian city has just the place for you.
Bunty's Chester Fried Chicken is a popular fast food joint housed in a car wash at 820 Ellice Ave. in Winnipeg.
And that's not all — it's also a laundromat and a convenience store.
Why do we ♥ Bunty's? Reason #5: Because where else can you get fried chicken, samosas, lottery tickets, AND do your laundry, all at once?!— 🍗 We ♥ Bunty's 🍗 (@BuntysWinnipeg) September 9, 2013
Bunty's has been open for over 47 years, and it's considered a landmark by many locals in the area.
People who don't appreciate Winnipeg have clearly never been to the chicken car wash on Ellice. pic.twitter.com/1TCwH65J1q— Faith (@RyanGJ8) November 5, 2019
You can even purchase a t-shirt with its name and a graphic of the establishment.
The beloved spot is open 24 hours a day, and the quality of their chicken is unexpectedly high, considering the appearance of its exterior.
Some have even said it's the best fried chicken they've ever had.
@OmarKelly there's this car wash here in Winnipeg, sells absolutely top shelf fried chicken. Wow— Marlo Stanfield (@ibankhead187) January 25, 2016
And it's not just the chicken that people love, it's the overall concept.
There is a Chicken Car Wash in Winnipeg! Fried chicken while your car gets clean! GENIUS.— Jen Sookfong Lee (@JenSookfongLee) October 22, 2016
Many have even expressed frustration that they didn't think of it themselves.
Winnipeg has a place called Chicken Car Wash. Eat chicken, clean your car. Why didn't I think of that?— Jill Mallett (@jillmreid) June 15, 2016
And more than anything, people seem to love that the business is completely and totally unique to Winnipeg.
As far as I know, #Winnipeg is still the only place to find a pizza/laundromat/chicken/car wash/convenience store. pic.twitter.com/fWWPztrXsg— Jeff Samsonow (@jeffsamsonow) August 12, 2013
And while some have called it odd, most people who come in contact with the establishment have nothing but positive things to say about Winnipeg's chicken car wash.
