Great chicken

I fell in love with their recipe about 1985 when I worked down the street. Now I live more than an hour away and will make a point to stop if in the area at lunch or dinner.

Don't miss it no more! Bad English, good chicken! Fried chicken the way you remember it and all the fixins' (more bad English) mashed potatoes, cole slaw, yum deserts. To go or dine in, old but clean. Prices good. You got to try it and you will probably go back!

Great quality food and exceptional service! Was given an extra piece of chicken as a courtesy and the food was out very quickly! Savory and crunchy chicken and a delicious potato salad the applebutter on a roll reminded me of my mothers!

This place is sooooo delicious! All of the sides, pies, & chicken were made to perfection. So worth leaving feeling stuffed! Very reasonable prices. Service was out of this world. Two thumbs up (well, eight thumbs up since there were four of us)! Going back, for sure!

I ordered the new menu items waffles with fried chicken, it was okay. The small restaurant feels like your in grandma's country kitchen. The chicken was perfectly cooked but lacked a great seasoning which just made it taste average. I've had this combination of items at other restaurants like Roscoe's which is much better.

The chicken was moist and juicy. The skin was perfectly seasoned and just a little crunchy. I have had fried chicken in a LOT of places and this was up there with the very, very best. Great service, too, very friendly. If you are anywhere near this place, you MUST try it.

I grew up eating at Dinah's. It's a neighborhood fixture and outside of Mrs. Knotts, it is my favorite place to get fried chicken. Don't be put off by the exterior. Dinah's is located in a crowded mini-mall and it's a bit of a dive. There is nothing fancy here. You come for the food. I live close, so I... More

I was expecting a restaurant whose quality of food and service was as legendary as it bills itself. It was really nothing much more than one of those 70's subpar places that caters more to night owls and diners on a budget. All the cliches are there: instant mashed potatoes, bad rolls, tv sitcom service and tired decor. The one... More

Simple, but good. The menu is basically just the different combos of fish, chicken, or sides you can get. Chicken is perfectly breaded. Crisp on the outside, but the meat itself (even white meat, which I usually find dry) is perfectly moist. The sides are great too. As odd as it sounds, you have to try their pineapple coleslaw. It's... More
