This is the place for real southern fried chicken. We get it to go and are never disappointed. Nothing fancy, just exactly what it says it is!

Great place with GOOD food. I mean I am always looking for real southern fried chicken in Florida and this place met my expectations. They do tell you that they use Peanut oil and MSG. So if you are not a friend of either, do not show up. Other than that, head over to Olde's and enjoy.

It's always fresh, juicy and delicious, never greasy. It's basic, simple formula for fried chicken keeps me coming back and lots of others in Orlando for all those... More

I have been eating Olde Dixie Fried Chicken for years. It's like going back in time when you enter this place because nothing has changed since the 1950s and it definitely looks it. It's actually a very cool place. The food there is absolutely awesome if you are into simple southern style cooking. The chicken there is like no other... More

If you're looking for superb fried chicken, then this is the place! The building isn't much to look at but the chicken is simply delicious - hot, crunchy coating and succulent meat that actually tastes like chicken should!! Hard pushed to find better and it certainly beats the usual 'tourist' burgers, etc. And... it is sooo cheap! Really hope I... More
