Always crispy and fresh. It is a pull through restaurant. Just give them your order and it is ready in minutes.

Word of Mouth- yesterday on the way to Gainesville from St. Augustine my family stopped at Fryer's in Melrose. We were treated poorly by the cashier. We placed our order and the cashier put another patrons order in with ours. When we were called to pick up our order my husband asked for a couple sauces and when he opened... More

Best fried chicken in the area. Better than any of the chains. If you are going in a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night get there early. The decor isn't fancy but the food will make you forget about that. Most people get it to take home.

I'm sorry to say we lived in Melrose 2 years before we gave Fryers a try. The fried chicken is hot and delicious and the cole slaw is wonderful (we will go there just to pick up cole slaw!)

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.
