Incredible Fried Chicken

I have been going here for over 30 years. It is delicious, service is quick, and pleasant. I have also enjoyed their chicken livers, and fried pie. Matt L

We got a little bit of everything on the menu and it was the best fried food smorgasbord you could ask for. There is always a line, but the service is quick and the food is fresh. Fried chicken and shrimp are damn good. I wish I could get some right now!

Now Price's has been around as long as I have. But I only started going about 10 years ago. The taste is still the same. Now the prices have increased but the chicken is still tops.

The Price Family have been serving the best fried Chicken in Charlotte since 1962, fish - shrimp - and BBQ are also excellent. It can be intimidating during the lunch rush with eight cashiers working four registers for walk in traffic and call ahead big box orders, just stand in the corner and study the big overhead menu until you...

My husband and I used to live in the South End and would frequent this place often. Th chicken is always perfectly cooked (I have also had the fish - amazing - and the shrimp - not their specialty). I have treated, friends, and family to Price's and no one has ever complained. Tips: Bring cash, try their potato salad,... More

I don't get the hype. Maybe the cooks were having a bad morning, but neither I nor my boyfriend were very impressed with our meals. The chicken, which was supposed to be the star, was definitely not as tasty as the hush puppies, which were really just okay. The tater tots were lame and the slaw wasn't very good. The... More

This is strictly take out- no place to sit. Delicious fried chicken and hushpuppies for a reasonable price. I will be back next time I'm in town.

I'm sure that Price's has to be the highest rated little joint of all the reviews. I've always said that this chicken is so good people wait in the rain to order. If anything brings peace to the Middle East, it would be this chicken. No one has chicken that rivals Price's.........No one.

This place really is good. The chicken is so moist and flavorful. I had saved the rest and the next day it was just as good as the day before. Well worth the trip.
