This is the absolute BEST fried chicken I've ever eaten. Their reputation is well deserved. Pros: the fried chicken !!! Cons: they really don't have great sides, unless you want potato salad (which I can't stand theirs) or hush puppies. And their rolls are just plain cold dinner rolls out of the package. It's take out only Cash only -... More

Our office just had a group lunch with no other than Price's Chicken Coop and as always it was a hit!! There were 11 who had fried chicken, 2 with BBQ and seafood plates so we had a variety among the group. Anytime I ask the office "Who wants Price's Chicken?" they come running to place their order and pay... More

I admit that I was hesitant to try Price's, being that it's cash only and is only "to go". We had a catered lunch at work one day, which was catered by none other than Price's. I was blown away at how fabulous the chicken was. Some places fry chicken with absolutely no flavor or it's too greasy. Wow, Price's... More

This chicken is not only the best chicken in CLT,but some of the best fried chicken I have ever had anywhere.We went after renting a car, so we had somewhere to sit and enjoy our meal.Unfortunately Price's does not have sit down space, so we found a group of ladies attending the AKA convention all dressed in their white eating...

This place is consistently the best fried chicken in Charlotte. Consistently the best chicken which is perfectly cooked. I have met only a few people in Charlotte that actually disagree with me. Love this place but don't try and sit down as there are no seats.

I enjoyed my experience at the coop. The only problem is the lack of personality. It's like being at the DSS office. Everyone seems to have attitude and upset at the world. I mean when the cameras were in their they were all smiles and happy. Wow anyway the food was okay. I would like bigger sides due to the... More

Bring a chair or prop yourself up on the hood of your car and go to town on the best fried chicken in town. Be prepared to wait in the line but the line moves quick. Get your box of goodies and prepare for true southern fried chicken.. Pay attention the hours they are open because its your normal lunch... More

The title says it all. The Fried Chicken is delicious. The sides are also very good (I had hush puppies and tots). The Carry out lines on a Friday afternoon were packed, but moved quickly. The only word of caution about this place is to make sure you check their hours- they close early (6pm).

Above average food compared to other places in Charlotte. The biggest problem are the hours of operation. They are limited time frames and usually not when you are ready to eat. If you are going home from work or on vacation it doesn't pay to go there. It's a good local place.
