Absolutely Best fried chicken anywhere!!

Fried chicken is ALWAYS fresh and hot because it's not cooked until ordered. Also, tasty coleslaw that can be ordered single serving or by the pint.

First time dinner...and the last! Fish dinners loaded with salt. Would have been nice if not so heavily seasoned. : (

They have really good fried chicken but I think their hours are ridiculous. They close at 7:20 and don't take orders after 7:10. Custer service could also use some improvement. Not very customer freindly.

Fried chicken is great - even really good when cold. But. They only take cash, no checks, no credit. The menu is out of date so don't even look at it. Wait times, even when you call ahead, can be 45 minutes to an hour. So, planning is critical if you want to enjoy the delicious, crispy, not greasy, best... More

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
