    PurveyorOfParma reckons:

    Geelong's infamous "Drive through parmi". Being a local, I thought it high time I give it a try. And was not disappointed. A very substantial parmi of good size, and thickness. No processed fast-food nonsense that one might expect. Hardly any bare chook, and a nice coating. The sauce was less remarkable, but still definitely edible. The chips were superb, both in quantity and quality. The salad came in a separate container, as did the dressing. No overly soaked salad is cause for celebration. Also bought a small Italian sauce for $2 extra, which is essentially just bolognese. Goes great with both parmi, and chips! Bonus point because... Well, it's a drive-through parmi.

    Didn't expect great things to start with, but oh my. Down to $10 on Tuesday nights, but easily worth more than twice that. Enormous piece of chook. Thick crumbing, but not solid as concrete. Delicious, and rich. Very nice chips, and plenty of them. Need a downside? Parma was on top of the chips. That's about it. Definitely will go back, and definitely reccommend.

    Very nice chicken, tasty sauce. Seperate chips and salad was fantastic. Main criticisms would be too much was left uncovered by sauce, and the crumbing was a bit too thick. For the size of it though? Pretty damn good value.
