Great Fried Chicken

Best fried chicken I've had in a long time. Chicken is prepared to order, so allow about 20 minutes. Sunday buffet provides a variety of selections, all good.

This was the best chicken we have had in a long time. Chicken gizzards were great and 1/2 chicken for each of us. Beans had a sweet taste to it. Onion rings were terrific. Go out of your way a few blocks to check this place out. Portion was so large that we ate leftovers the next day. Thanks. AJ's

Had a great meal here on a recent Sunday. The fried chicken was the star of the show, but many of the other options were just as delicious.

Great meal, but don't get in a hurry. Saturday night, great local music, and a full bar available for quenching your palate.

This is a must stop when traveling through the area. The Chicken is hot and fresh, the sides, meh, but the Chicken makes it worth stopping. Service varies, sometimes good, sometimes not. And this is not fast food. You will wait for the chicken, because it's fried fresh to order. Their Mac and Cheese is creamy and cheesy, the coleslaw... More

I wanted to like this place. I'd been scrolling through TripAdvisor and saw a reviewer's photo of their meal. It showed greens which piqued my interest. We made a special trip over on a Friday afternoon. We ordered pork chops, steak, and an order of fried chicken to go. Words cannot describe how bad this food was. Pretty shocking for... More

Not consistent food, and servers act like they are totally inconvenienced by the fact you sat at their table. We actually had one roll her eyes at us after we asked for ketchup the 2nd time. I find if you sit at the bar you get much better service. One good thing is you can bring your dog into to... More
