The early word on Flavor Flav’s eponymous Chicken & Ribs restaurant in Sterling Heights, Michigan is out, and it’s pretty much a mixed bag. For a sense of how locals have reacted, Eater culled the opinions from critics of various online platforms, including MLive, Urbanspoon, Foursquare, Hudlin Entertainment Forum, and Yelp. Looking through the reactions, there are a few things that stand out:
- Quite a few key elements need to be ironed out, like the barbecue sauce and the food turnover from the order to its fulfillment.
- Flav is ever the polarizing figure. As one Yelper wrote, “Like Flaor [sic] Flav himself, people are going to either love this place or hate this place.”
- The food (particularly the chicken) is promising, as three people indicated.
