Greasy goodness

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. Expect to wait a bit if it's busy, and don't anticipate the... read more

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.

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.

Crust is just right - Gizzards & Livers are awesome. Friendly Service is good. Drive Thru is fairly quick

Stopped in as we passed thru town. Kids liked the Fire Strips (chicken tenders basted in mild sauce then battered and fried) and I liked the fried chicken breast. The place is not much to look at but a good stop between Gainesville and Jacksonville after travel sports games.

Was so sorry to see them close the restaurant in my town. Haven't had their delicious fried chicken since they closed their business in Interlachen. Their little corn fritters were excellent too! A little high in price but couldn't beat the fried chicken!! Use boxed mashed potatoes which I didn't like, french fried were OK but lots of them. They... More

Now that I am gluten free, there is not much for me at this restaurant but before I went GF, we ordered for take out at least once a week. The chicken is 'broasted' and tasty although the fries are a bit under-cooked and limp. The place could use more 'sprucing up' to make eating in a bit more pleasant.... More

The BEST cheesy poppers & fried mushrooms I have ever found. Love their sweet tea & fritters too. They don't skimp on portions & everything is seasoned well.
