Very good chicken

After reading reviews, I thought this was the place to try on my one night in town to pick up my daughter from the airport for a spring break visit to Boone. The chicken was very tasty, with crispy skin and moist while being cooked perfectly. I enjoyed the potato rounds but felt that the... read more

Always great grab and go no seating. The fried chicken is always perfectly golden brown. The smell in your car will drive you crazy until you dig into your grease stained paper box.

Went there because we saw it broadcast on food network. Yes they even boast about how good it was say "the best chicken in Charlotte town. After a visit here I was very disappointed about the praises on the network. Very expensive to the taste and totally greasy southern style. Go there and you be the judge for yourself.

My fiance and me visited Charlotte NC last summer and decided to give this place a shot after seeing several good reviews online. We loved it! I'll admit it really is not fancy at all and the service is not super friendly but who cares with chicken this great! It's not expensive at all and super delicious. The service is... More

And if YOU love chicken, you can stop at Price's and get some really good chicken. The prices are great, the service is fast, and well, I think I already said this, but the chicken is delicious. I don't think there's anything else to say about this place. It's good.

I had heard that this was the best fried chicken to be found in Charlotte so I stopped by to pick up some for dinner. Lets say the reviews did not lie! The chicken was moist and delicious. I got two 1/4 White Chicken Dinners to take home with the sweet tea (normally I hate sweet tea, but I definitely... More

I grew up eating this on Fridays. It is just a staple in Charlotte. Now I do believe something may have changed as far as the oil used, but either way it is still good. Yes it gets busy, but the line moves along. Love those taters!

Have eaten here many times over the years - always excellent! My parents have gotten chicken from here to serve to out-of-town guests - to showcase the local flavor... My personal favorite is the fish sandwich (extra tartar) - you get 4-5 nice sized filets. As others have mentioned - cash only, no seating. The sweet tea is SWEET, but... More
