    This was their Tuesday $12 Parma Special. I went there with low expectations given the previous reviews, but left pleasantly surprised. The chicken was bigger than average and was tender. There was good coverage of breadcrumbs though a little soggy and clumpy in parts on the bottom, which I think is the norm almost everywhere. The napoli sauce was a little sparse and lacked a zing, so I'm guessing it was a store bought version instead of being freshly made. There was just the right amount of cheese, but it just needed a more sauce to balance it out. The chips were very nice and crisp with just the right amount of salt on them, and were free from salad dressing contamination. The accompanying salad was also very nice, with a variety of greens, and slices of cucumber, tomato and red onion plus some carrot shavings. There was a hint of a tasty honey mustard dressing but it could only be found on a couple of the salad leaves. I subtract 1 point for the lack of a freshly-made napoli sauce and insufficient sauce and salad dressing. Though there's always room for improvement, I left Flanagan's having enjoyed a very good parma, and am looking forward to my next visit.

    Hard to say, stock standard parma but zero wow factor - chips a bit on the soggy side - topping fairly solid - 18 bucks a bit exxy for a lunchtime. - 1 point because they sponsor the opposition's cricket team

    While a massive serving, the quality of the meat was a huge let down. It wasn't the size that prevented me finishing the meal, it was the simple fact that it didn't taste too good.
