First caveat, we didn't order the legendary and inexpensive fried chicken which most people at the restaurant were eating-silly us. That said, prices are relatively steep for small portions and they're out of a considerable number of dishes listed on the menu too. "What side would you like?" "I'll have the mashed potatoes" "Sorry, we're out." "Oh, well, the mac... More

Best fried chicken ever, but we waited over an hour for it and then they brought us the wrong meal. There were 2 other tables that arrived after us and they both got served before us. It wasn't busy. Poor organization.

Nice food and lots of it! Not much choice as they had run out of a lot of the food on the menu when we were there, however great portion sizes and price - would recommend if on a backpackers budget

We were told that this was a great place to get lunch, so we tried it. Personally it was ok, not the best. They get a lot of customers and everything is made when ordered, so expect a wait. I had a cheese burrito and I didn't like it simply because of the cheese used. They didn't use the usual... More

So glad we stopped in on the way back to our house. We had the fried chicken, which was average. We also had the pasta salad with chicken...now THIS was something to talk about. It was fantastic, and I regret not having the chance to have it a second time. Service was OK, nothing to write home about. Nor was... More

The fried chicken here wasn't as good as the southern fried chicken in the US (even from chains like Popeye's or Church's). I'm not sure what all the fuss is about this place. The fried chicken was just ok, nothing special. The grilled chicken sandwich was better.
