Edit: Please do not confuse this place with Krispy’s Fried Chicken & Seafood on south Hillside. They are two different restaurants owned by two different people.
There’s a new chain that has arrived in Wichita called Krispy Krunchy Chicken. It’s a Cajun-style chicken chain that opened their first one on north Broadway. If all goes well, they hope to open more in town.

I originally stopped by the second week they opened and left immediately because I couldn’t stand the smell inside. On my second visit, the smell was not as bold but still not great for ambiance; dirty tables didn’t help either. Regardless I made my order and still dined in.
While ordering, I asked the cashier to just give me what was popular. That resulted in my order consisting of a three piece meal, chicken wings, jambalaya and boudin bites which were fried balls of rice and pork. They were completely out of wings so they gave me two drumsticks and a thigh.
Everything in my order was sitting out already but for some reason it still took a while to get my order. I remember just standing there thinking, “it’d almost be faster if this was self-serve”. Not sure what took so long either given the amount of employees standing inside.
Once I got my food and dug in, the taste and texture almost reminded me of a KFC. The chicken was all very meaty but didn’t have much seasoning to me. The chicken was overly fried which left me asking for a to-go container for most of it. Seriously the picture looks like it was taken by the FaceApp old person filter.
I had the Cajun sweet & sour wings at the cashier’s recommendation and they were VERY sweet; way too sweet for a wing in my opinion. At five for $5.49, they were awfully small and not a great value.
The jambalaya wasn’t anything special either. It resembled the microwave rice bags that you can pop in for 90 seconds. And the boudin bites were very dry.
Between that and the slow service, smell of the building and dirty tables, it’s safe to say I was not impressed.
Here’s their menu:
