Deja Vu is That Place In Moose Jaw With All The Chicken, you may have heard of it or gotten a bit fatter there yourself. It’s semi-famous for its countless flavours of chicken fingers, wings, and milk shakes. It’s like the kind of place that would be on Triple D if everything wasn’t packaged and deep-fried, and if all their sauces weren’t just varying permutations of the same eight household condiments..
Here is the mighty chicken sauce list, and it can be a bit daunting (you don’t want to blow it and pick the gross one.) What’s nice is that you can mix and match a ton; for an order of 3-4 fingers or a dozen wings, you can have 4 different flavours. Everything is priced really reasonably, and you get a heart-stopping portion for each meal.
Bombay curry, Hickory-Dillory-Dock, and Texas Ranch (the most popular flavour in the house) with macaroni and iceberg salad. The honey dill/hickory combo was the clear winner, and as no big surprise, the spicy Hindu flavours of the Spice Coast were not executed masterfully on the first finger. It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten it, but I swear they steal the macaroni salad by the tub-load from KFC.
Red Hot & Blue, Korean BBQ, and Sweet Southern Heat. All three were pretty good. The belt-loosening portion of fries really took this indulgence from guilty to gluttonous.
The decor is classic diner, but doesn’t quite go all the way into full-on camp, which is actually refreshing for a joint banking on customers’ nostalgia for fatter days. If you can stomach a milk shake along with your heaping mass of fried chicken and potatoes, then I tip my hat to you. This place also deep-fries pickles to start and chocolate bars for dessert. It’s a party, but not one you’re going to feel really good about.
