Overall the chicken is good---if you like an abundance of a Lawreys type seasoning. Extremely salty. In addition to only having a couple of outdoor tables, two of which were near garbage bins and so smelled, this place only takes cash. Who in this day and age doesn't take cards when it is so easy to do? My kid didn't... More

Skipper John's has been in the same location for over 25 years, which should speak for itself. It is carry-out only so you should always call ahead. Their food is cooked fresh to order and it has the best fried chicken/fish I have ever had!

If you haven't had it. I strongly recommend that you do. The smell of the food when you pull into the parking lot will be exactly how it will taste. Please call in your order because it's all cooked to order. The wait time is 20 - 25 minutes

Wait... It is better than that. It is your grandma's fried chicken. You will wait for your food to come out hot and fresh. No inside seating but a couple of tables outside if you can't wait until you get home. If you are anywhere near Perry, Ga. Stop and get you some!

This is a take out only place, so call your order ahead when possible. If you don't, you'll have to wait 20-25 minutes since the chicken is made to order. This is by far the best chicken I've ever had. Seasoned to perfection. Some might say over seasoned, but I think its perfect. Skipper Johns is off the beaten path,... More

I've lived in MidGa all of my life 37 yrs. I've heard many people talk about this place but never tried it. So my wife and I decided one Saturday afternoon to make a special trip. I must say it is the Best Chicken Around. Be sure to call ahead! Would be nice if they at least had an online... More

Skipper John's fried chicken is better than any other chicken on earth. The fish is also good, but you go and get that chicken and some potatoes from Wal-mart and you got your meal!!!

If you're looking for the best fried chicken in Perry -- here it is. Skip KFC and head to Skipper Johns... but be ready for take-out because there is no seating. A local favorite for a quick lunch!

They carry plenty of items on there menu but their chicken can not be beat. It's takeout but they do have a table or two outside. Call ahead it takes about 20 minutes.
