A must stop and eat place!

Whenever I travel thru Nashville I try to stop at Maniac's. Great spicy fries, egg rolls and chicken tenders. .

The title sums it up. My chicken was tasteless, tempura batter that was too soaked in grease to have much crunch. My fries were limp and also tasteless. Though this place seems to keep a crowd, chains like Zaxby's and Chik-Fil-A have this place beat hands down!

I visited this restaurant for dinner after hearing a couple of people rave about the food. It is not a fancy place but the food is incredible and the staff is very friendly. They checked on my satisfaction with the meal several times. I had their fried chicken tenders. They were delicious. I will go back there again when in... More

I decided to try Manics after a Costco run. I was craving some fried chicken covered in sauce and this place seemed to fit the bill. We dinned in on a somewhat busy Saturday afternoon. The boy taking our order was friendly, however when I ordered the 4 tender tossed in the bang bang sauce (very spicy the menu board... More

Menu looks limited, but being a chicken strip guy it was good enough for me. The breading was awesome. The coyote sauce was awesome. The seasoned fries were awesome. You get the point. Must try while in the area!

This place is great - the west Texas egg rolls are out of this world! The battered chicken tenders are wonderful- light without being greasy - and the sauces are homemade - my favorite is honey mustard. Do yourself a favor- try this place out

We went here on a whim and we were all pleasantly surprised at how good it is. Maniac's has a small menu so it is easy to choose. I swear, we had one of everything and every single item was delicious. It is reasonably priced and the service is nice.

although the food is fine if you like chicken fingers and big portions, it is not good enough to override snotty staff and "rules" about tables. Really? if you sit at the counter you are not allowed to do so for 2 minutes then move to a table. Not really my idea of how to make your customers feel at... More

Our family does not eat much fried food but this was very good chicken that we didn't find greasy like another reviewer. I'm going to assume it is made with trans fat though as the 3 people working there had no idea. Basically soybean and corn oil was all they could tell me. I don't think we will be back... More

Love the Maniac's Salad with grilled chicken and H2 dressing! It's my favorite salad anywhere in Cool Springs -- maybe in the WORLD! This place is CROWDED at lunch, so we often go for dinner when it's a lot quieter. It's a real hidden gem!
