Good fried chicken

The fried chicken is usually very good. Don't let the long line scare you they are very fast. The sides are just average. The overall price is very reasonable.

Okay...you want one thing and one thing only...FRIED CHICKEN. No place to sit. Best have cash. Expect to ridiculed if you are on your cell phone. This is old school, fantastic fried chicken.

Real, deep fried chicken. Juicy, tender, delicious. It's take out only, street parking only, and very busy. Worth the wait. Buy a half chicken with sides and drink and drive to a near by park to enjoy!

Chicken is always excellent, which includes fresh and tasty. Lunch time is a pain due to limited parking. Got to say it's worth the effort, as well as the wait.

My son (19) and I have been visiting more value restaurants in the Charlotte area, and he was raving about Prices. Went there this past Saturday, and even at 11AM it was busy. Basic menu for a classic fried chicken house, dinners, and family meals all very reasonable. All cooked fresh, not a lot of breading. Basic dinners served with... More

Fast and no frills. Great value and the nice man that served us had funny stories to share. Went there on a Saturday afternoon and there was no wait. I also got the fish fry sandwich and it was the BEST I've ever had. Love the sweet tea too and it was only 86 cents.

I went here for lunch with coworkers and the food is amazing. Staff is friendly. Leave the plastic at home. They only accept cash.

This is a long standing great local southern fried chicken place. Be warned there usually is a line for this local favorite. But if you are looking to fulfill your fried food hankering.. this is where to go.
