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.

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 out: banana pudding, peach cobbler, green beans with onion and... More

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. Do check... More

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!

Good chicken, pressure cooked and fried. My Wife's brother worked there for a while and I have been addicted since. The chicken is good but the potato wedges better. Stop by there. It is off University behind the Dunkin Doughnuts. You won't be disappointed. Dont go between 2pm-3pm on Sunbday, it is packed.
