Best fried chicken around!

We love the fried chicken, the fritters and the fried mushrooms! There is none around that compare to Fryer's!

Pretty much whatever you get, you'll like. Fried Gizzards are a large portion and very tender, not overcooked and hard. Fried Chicken is great and at a good price.

Limited menu. But the fried chicken is better than national chains and their prices are better. No southern biscuits, but they do have a fried corn fritter. Also a fried shrimp dinner and add a piece of fried fish for under $2. It's always busy and the lines tell the story....yet because of the limited menu, the lines move fast.... More

Our family loves Fryers. The fried chicken is outstanding. We also enjoy the slaw and fried mushrooms. My husband likes the gizzards. Fast service and extremely affordable prices.

Sometimes the chicken is a little greasy. The sandwiches are good as well as the hamburgers and sides. Wish I could get biscuits instead of hush puppies, but they're good.

There is a drive through. Fryer's serves hot food every time. There are plenty of Southern side dishes to choose from.

When I lived closer to Melrose, I'd visit Fryers about once a month. It's nothing fancy, but you'll get good chicken and strips, nice shoestring fries (ask for extra salt), and the beat fried livers outside of your granny's kitchen.

I have only gone through the drive through here. The food was great and priced very reasonably. The service was friendly and quick. Love the sweet tea.
