Like home fried chicken!

Good alternative to frying it yourself!! The chicken livers are good too! A little salty for some. Call ahead if you don't want to wait and don't forget your cash.

Skipper John's is the best fried chicken in middle Georgia. I don't know who can beat them. You can call in your order or you can wait about 20 to 25 minutes. It is worth the wait.

I don't fry food so if we want fried chicken this is where we go I've been eating there for the 40 years or Plus that I have lived in Perry. It is the best fried chicken ever a season at with special spices not sure what but it has the best flavor and it's so good.

The chicken here is fabulous. Its golden brown and always look perfect and always taste perfect. The only issue I have is that you need to call ahead if possible, or you will have a 20 minute wait. The price is a little high, but the chicken is great so you get what you pay for.

I love great food and excellent customer service.... These place has the worse customer service, no professional, no respect and just no clue on how customers make your business work.

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 The menu is out of date so don't even look at it.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
