It may say Mountain but it's Southern too

Mountain Fried Chicken is an old timey Southern spot that serves cafeteria style with fried chicken as the centerpiece. The chicken looked dry but in fact was juicy with a crispy crust. You can request dark, light, wings, breast strips and all combinations. The sides are where the southern comes... read more

Mothers day dinner ruined! I called ahead to ask if I purchased the 21 piece meal could replace the thighs with legs. I was told yes. I drive on the other side of town because this is the location I frequently use. The cashier turns to ask the guy packing. He gives him the go to take the order. Another... More

Well, honestly.this style of fried chicken wasn't to my liking. I realize now I prefer baked chicken. It was greasy and just not what I expected.

I eat at the location on University Parkway more often than Akron Drive. The food is always fresh and the side selection is very plentiful. The food is in front of you (under glass), which makes selection easy. The coleslaw is obviously kept in a cold area out of site but make sure you order it if you like coleslaw.... More

While this restaurant may not look like much, it provided excellent fried chicken and other goodies. If you like southern cooking, you'll love the menu at Mountain Fried Chicken. Hot food, fast service.

I've noticed the reviews are mixed. My family and I love this place. We usually just get the chicken and potato wedges and only occasionally get other sides. The new location is better than the last one (was next to adult entertainment place). I wish they amp up their sides a bit (green beans are flat, and I do not... More

We had our grand opening for this store on March 25th 2013, I must contest your opinion and would ask that you give us a chance to change your mind, I have been proud of our reputation for over 27 years as a healthy, family friendly operation, that offers choices and a fried chicken that is not greasy.

Great fried chicken, side dishes just ok. However, if you love real good fried chicken and don't want to make it yourself, this is the place. No decor or atmosphere really, but we usually get take out and food is always good.

Potato wedges are excellent but the chicken is moist without being oily. Signs look like they were drawn by a child and the building needs paint but DON'T let that fool you. The people are very nice and the food is excellent! I eat there about twice per week!
