Best fried chicken

Don't miss AJ's! They make the best fried chicken in about a 200 mile radius! They have a daily buffet that always features their chicken as well as other Southern-cooked items. This is a good place for lunch and dinner. The service is always friendly, quick, and pleasant. You may have to wait just... read more

I'm so glad me and my family picked AJ's the other night. The reviews I've read haven't been good but I found out otherwise when we ate the good southern fried chicken. We came in as a 13 top and every single one of us loved it!!! We will MOST DEFF BE BACK. Thanks AJ's

We arrived after a large group just left (??). They were sold out of the two of the main items and out of one of their specialty deserts. The fried chicken was good but not the best I have ever had. AJ"s was hard to find and the street lighting in the area was dark and a bit imposing at... More

I am a local and I LOVE to support our local businesses and I once loved AJ's, but after them consistently getting our orders completely screwed up I refuse to go back. It was bad enough waiting 45 minutes on an average for a to go order, but add not even remotely getting what you ordered to it is beyond... More

I went to AJ's with a group of women, and we ordered our chicken ahead of time; otherwise it would have taken 30-45 minutes, because it's fried as it's ordered. It was DELICIOUS!! Very southern, and cooked to perfection. Sides were very tasty and the atmosphere was pleasant. We will go again, but definitely we'll order ahead rather than sit... More

Our experience was some what different from the reviews we read. Only a few customers the night we were there. Staff was friendly, but service was slow. Food was O.K., but not outstanding. I thought they were a little pricey, $4 for a bottle of domestic beer.

Best fried chicken I Have ever had. the rest of our party had seafood and their reaction was the same as mine best they ever had. we stayed on St George Island for a week and ate almost every where in Franklin County, and AJs topped them all. wait...

Went her for some good southern food. But that is not what I got. Service was slow and the food was not as good as the person with whom recommended it said it was. I waited and waited. When I finally got my lunch took a few bites and just left. Will not be returning.

The chicken, green beans and mac n cheese was a wonderful change from all the seafood we have had in the area. Portions were large, more than we could finish. Service was very good as well.
