The age-old expression goes ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ and in essence nothing encapsulates Norwalk’s Garden Catering better than that. If you want a scenic view and comfortable seating then I have bad news for you: Garden Catering is not for you. However,if you want some of the best fast food I’ve ever had in my 18 years of eating, you should definitely check out Garden Catering.

Located at 314 Westport Ave, Norwalk Garden Catering’s famous slogan greets you upon entrance: “If it’s not Garden Catering it’s just not special.”I ordered the special, which was comprised of chicken nuggets and fried mashed potato cones. Disclaimer (If it wasn’t already apparent): If you are on a diet, Garden Catering may not be the place for you to visit.

With that said, nuggets and cones are not the only thing offered at Garden Catering. The menu has a massive selection of wraps, sandwiches and baked goods to fulfill the needs of anyone.

In a matter of mere minutes my food was called out and ready to be picked up. I was a little skeptical when I first got my basket of deep fried chicken and potatoes, but after putting a little bit of ‘special’ seasoning on my nuggets, I tried my first bite. I was blown away with what I had just been given. The chicken tasted fresh and had so many flavors and not only that, the cones were such a unique twist on the potato side dish.

Not only was this meal delicious, but it was also very filling. Best of all the entire meal  only cost $7.50, which is cheaper than a Chipotle burrito or a Gaetano’s sandwich.

Anyone who is looking for high quality, filling and cheap food look no further than this hidden gem located in Norwalk.
