Jr’s Fish & Chicken Takes Over Castle Restaurant



Can fried chicken happily coexist with gyros? Only time will tell at Castle Restaurant on Park Avenue, now called Jr's Fish & Chicken.

 

I stopped by the small eat-in and take-out restaurant located a few doors down from Las Delicias a few days ago when I noticed the grand opening banner. At least for now, the new owners are promoting both menus, which is a good thing, because Castle's gyro, a wonderful grilled boat of a sandwich, combines beef and lamb layered in pita bread with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sliced onions, and a liberal dose of tzatziki sauce. It is an excellent gyro.

 

I had to goggle Jr's, which apparently is locally owned and operates restaurants on South Perkins in Parkway Village, on Covington Pike, and on Elvis Presley Boulevard. The Jr’s menu is fried focused, inexpensive, and includes the Jr's trio: two catfish filets, two wings, six shrimp, fries, coleslaw, two rolls, and a drink for $9.99. Good value, I suspect, but I'll be sticking with the gyros, at least for now.

Jr's Fried Chicken, 3992 Park Ave. (320-1020)
