Best fried chicken!

Hubby and I were in Morgantown for an anniversary weekend. Went here for dinner Saturday evening. Small little dining area but we waited a few minutes and they quickly helped us newbies out! Chicken and waffles was delicious and so was the fried chicken sandwich! We will be back!

Great flavor and texture on the fried chicken. When you are in the mood for some great comfort food, give it a try.

The food is awesome! I love the cole slaw and fried chicken. The only problems I see is that the food is expensive and it takes a while to get the food once u order. I love this place and like to go there often.

This is a typical small-town, unassuming, lunch place. I think it may also do breakfast but I haven't had it. The food is homemade, portions are huge and the food is really good. Go early for lunch if you want their fried chicken because once the batch is finished they don't cook more that day. One sandwich will easily serve... More

Don't be put off by the appearance and small dinning area. It's not for date night but the food will not dissapoint. I'm a local and didn't go here for the longest time. Wow what a mistake. This is the best chicken you will consume anywhere. The sandwiches are amazing and staff top notch. There was a line waiting for... More

Great chicken and creative sandwich's! We brought 3 kids thru and they were more than accommodating. The buffalo chicken sandwich was great and my wife raved about the Vera Cruz sandwich.

You order first before sitting down if a table is available. We sat down first and thought someone would wait on us, but the didn't and then we had to get at the end of the line to order. The staff were very nice, patient and helpful. A lot of students go there and order take out. We felt a... More
