Dixy Wythenshawe vs Dixy Chorlton

Hello and greetings my Bearded Soldiers, it’s me your Bearded Captain, leader of all beards, flag bearer of all beards on digital broadcasting media. I am that beard who tries to make people laugh and I am that beard who tries to make people smile. Brothers, I hope you’re well, looking after yourselves and your beard!

I want to talk about an important issue in the life of beards and that is their stance on Dixy Chicken. Dixy, which as I am sure you know os held in high esteem by The Captain, what you also should know is that Dixy Chorlton is the flag bearer of all Dixy shops. The Longsight branch isn’t bad but they don’t do it week in and week out.

The same can be said of the Burnage site too. As mentioned Dixy’s is in Stretford, Whalley Range and now Wythenshawe. It’s the Wythenshawe branch I want to talk about. As you would have read from my previous post where I reviewed Dixy Chicken Wythenshawe, you would be aware of the love I gave it.

Ok, so let’s compare the two. Mega mix ve Mega Mix, there’s not a lot in it, but what makes the burger what it is, is the bread and the tenderness of the chicken. With that criterion in mind, the winner for this section is? Dixy Chorlton! Now, there’s no shame in this as the Chorlton boys have been doing their thing for sometime.

Next on the comparison list is the Mini Burger. Just like the Mega Mix, what makes this burger good is the taste of the chicken and the quality of the bun. What I mean is that the bread shouldn’t be too done it’s tasting like toast. This did happen on one occasion in Wythenshawe and never in Chorlton.

No exaggeration I have been going to Dixy South Manchester for 7 years now, I am almost certain it’s longer. In this time, they have never come close to dropping their standards where Wythenshawe did. For the record I have tasted both, when both were relatively new opened.

So, there you have it, all be it fine margins, but Dixy Chorlton is the best Dixy in Manchester. In terms of food shops in their sector, Kansas does give Dixy a good run for it’s money. You may have wiped the floor with all the other Dixy’s that came after you, but in Kansas and even Roosters Altrincham who have spicy chicken burger to die for.

On that note, it’s over and out from your Bearded Captain!

Dixy Chicken Wythenshawe review

In what has felt like months, finally Dixy Wythenshawe is open! Dixy is what I see as one of the best take away chicken burger chains in Manchester, if not the best!

The reason for the delay for Dixy Wythenshawe not opening , has been down to Covid19 and the lockdown of course, but has the wait been worth it? I will discuss dear reader. So who am I? Well, avid reader you know that I am Ayyaz Malik, writer and blogger, but what you don’t know maybe is that I am a massive fan of Dixy’s.

The South Manchester branches have increased in recent years. There was Chorlton, Fallowfield and Longsight, but since there has been additional branches added in Rusholme (Curry Mile), Sale, Whalley Range, Burnage (no longer) and Stretford.

Whalley Range and Stretford ( both are on my to eat list), I have tried all of the Dixy branches in that region (England U.K region) . My waist line, supports this.

So, when I go to Dixy, what I order is my signature. Three mini burgers and a pepsi can, when I am not with my brother and a mega mix chicken burger meal, when I am with my stunt double (my twin).

What will I be judging Dixy Wythenshawe by here? A few factors, time taken for order, quality of bun and quality of chicken (taste and texture). With this branch of Dixy chicken, the mini burger was brilliant!

Going to this branch, I was a bit apprehensive going to this branch and trying this burger, due to the high standards I have tasted of the mini burger.

The other bits on the menu I have checked is the mega mix burger meal and also the double charger burger meal.

The mega mix, is chicken fillet, with two mini fillets on top. To compliment the burger, there’s lettuce and some mayonnaise to further compliment the burger.

I am delighted to say that the mini burger (the hot dog shaped burger) was soft and not toasted. I have tasted the mini burger and the burger itself, being toasted.

That, in my humble opinion ruins the taste! As for the chicken, it was crispy, succulent and seasoned nicely too. I have tasted chicken being too crispy, hard and rugged. My teeth, are having a wrestling match with the chicken.

Thankfully, the double charger burger was also well cooked and the chicken was across the board, of an excellent high standard.

If there was a slight criticism, the time taken for the burger was a bit long, but at the same time I won’t complain too much because, this branch is newly opened and second, the quality of the chicken was brilliant. One last thing, to maybe nitpick somewhat, but for me the burger box needs to be Dixy branded, but I also concede at the same time, I am being over the top.

So, there you go my review of Dixy Chicken Wythenshawe. A good experience, with well-made burgers (the bun) and with succulent, crispy, succulent and seasoned nicely too. More of the same please guys, see you soon!
