Holy cow, best fried chicken we've ever had

It's fried, it's flavorful, service is fast, inexpensive, and every order is served with a smile. You must pay with cash but it is SO worth it! Go. Now.

Read some reviews so we thought we would give it a try, but 4 of us had the same opinion. It was good but I guess I was expecting much more in flavor

If you are a fan of fried chicken, then Price's Chicken Coop is for you. Chicken is cooked perfectly with a great coating. Buy a whole bird and have lunch for the next day. Remember there is a parking lot right behind the store (and it's free).

I'm not a Southerner and not an expert on fried chicken, but I saw the overwhelmingly positive reviews for this restaurant so gave it a try. Twice. I don't understand why people love this restaurant so much. Both times the meat has been very dry and overcooked. Plus the salt was laid on so thick, it's hard to taste any... More

I'm a native Charlottean who has been a patron since I can remember. No fried chicken can compare to theirs. Their BBQ, potato salad, slaw, sweet tea and pies won't disappoint. Don't miss out!

Service was excellent. Price's Chicken Coop offers great value for your money. The chicken was crispy and juicy but lacked flavor. Potato salad was awesome and hush puppies were good. Be aware the restaurant only takes cash.

The best fried chicken in Charlotte. A little hard to find if you don't know about it, but, it is well worth the effort. Don't forget to add the hush puppies. If you like good old down home cooking this it the place. Just like Grandma used to make.

Price's has been rated the best fried chicken in the Southeast by Gourmet, Jane & Michael Stern and my brother Andy as well as others because it is the best. Be prepared to wait in line and have cash available to pay for your meal then just find a place to go and enjoy.
