How does the Mary Brown’s Melty Mash-Up Bowl taste?

Chicken plus mashed potatoes and gravy, what could go wrong? While this classic combination is a comfort meal we often turn to — we felt this dish left us wanting more. For starters, price per portion — it’s a great deal. The Melty Mash-Up Bowl can be found in the snack section on the menu. In our mind, snack menu equals a small portion — not in this case. So while we love the idea of this bowl being a one-stop-shop for lunch, we felt a little disappointed with the chicken-to-mash ratio. The majority of the bowl was filled with tons of mashed potatoes, leaving little room for the Honey BBQ Chicken Pop-ins.

While both the signature gravy and the crispy onions made an excellent addition, we were still left wanting more of the delicious chicken. If you’re a fan of potatoes over chicken, this is a great option. Otherwise, we would suggest ordering a chicken sandwich on its own.

How much is the Mary Brown’s Melty Mash-Up Bowl?

The Mary Brown’s Melty Mash-Up Bowl is offered at a great price of only $6. In the bowl, you’ll get a large helping of mashed potatoes, Honey BBQ Chicken Pop-ins, the signature gravy and crispy onions.
