Wow. Amazing food

My kids and I agree this was the best chicken we have ever had and the biscuits soaked in a sweet butter was equally amazing. We also enjoyed their corn poppers and seasoned carrots. I can rarely get my kids to eat any vegetable but they loved those carrots. We thought the staff were very friendly... read more

The sides again were good not great... The stars of this place for me were..... More

Awesome local black owned restaurant that does not dissapoint, I had the honey dipped fried sausage sandwich on bread with mustard and coleslaw, yummy! If your going thru Memphis during lunch it's worth the drive.

The friend chicken is amazing, pair it with the delicious sides (especially the corn balls) and you must sprinkle some "Corruption" on top of it all!

We loved our entire visit, from the fried carrots to the Cherry Kool-Aid! We had fried chicken, an awesome sweet/hot sauce and plenty of the Seasoning (which I even took home). My daughter had the triple cheese sandwich and could barely finish! The employees were very accommodating, including Uncle Lou who took photos with us. Will definitely return!

Wow! I can't say enough about this place! We ordered the 7 piece mixed with some traditional and some of the sweet and spicy love (hot), the fried carrots and corn nuggets. I was blown away by the taste! The skin was perfectly cooked, light and crispy with tremendous flavor, the chicken was cooked evenly all the way through and... More

We went here based on trip advisor reviews. We walked in and was greeted and brought a menu and an explanation of the menu. Super great service. Good prices, chicken was really good just not excellent!! But the service made it all worth the while. Uncle lou came in and took a pic with us, he was so nice!!

Great chicken much better than Gus's. Looks like a hole in the wall but the service is great and the food is better.
