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!

The chicken and fries taste pretty heavenly. The chicken tenders actually have a good amount of herbs on it and a great breading. But, our fries were soggy with grease. Didn't notice it as much on our chicken, but our chicken was extremely juicy and tender. In the end, we don't expect to pay over $17 for two meals consisting... More

This restaurant was recommended to try by a family member. I ordered the chicken tenders and slaw. The dipping sauce choices were great and very tasty. The slaw was also really good. There was a lot of breading on the chicken but it was tasty.

Had lunch there today. The West Texas egg rolls were outrageous. I had the Cajun Love sandwich. It was good. My First Sgt and I agree...the Bang Bang (labeled as spicy) and habenro sauce (labeled as very hot) were NOT hot in the least. I'm a whimp when it comes hot stuff. This stuff, while tasty, had zero heat. Overall... More

I read about Maniacs on this site and couldn't wait to try it. We loved the grilled tenders and the casual atmosphere. We will be back

Our family visited on Saturday night after reading about it on TripAdvisor and loved this place. Two of us had fried tenders, one broiled tenders and one mesquite smoked wings. Wings were moist, smoky and meaty and were excellent. Tenders were huge and tasty as was the homemade ranch dipping sauce. My son thought the tenders had a little too... More

Amazing tasting chicken. I purchased the Cajun chicken sandwich and all the toppings and sauces tasted amazing. I also sampled chicken tenders which were also great. Fast service a bad nice staff too. Check this place out if you get time. Very simple menu too.
