Consistently Great Chicken

Local hole-in-the-wall serving great fried chicken. They serve it family style with creamed peas (better than it sounds) and your choice of french fries, rice or mashed potatoes (every one gets a choice) and gravy. The basic chicken meal includes 4 pieces (a half of a chicken) of fried chicken... read more

We have always loved the food from Beach Road. We recently ate there with a group of friends. The food has lost just a tidbit of it's quality that we always looked forward to. The chicken was just not the same, nor were the creamed peas. Still good food however, and we will go again sometime in the future. This... More

First of all, the good: the two fried onion rings tasted great The bad: The rings were so greasey my stomach couldn't take it. The biscuits were tiny. Our chicken was delivered on hot plates, but they were cold. In fact, they tasted like they were chilled then microwaved, not fried fresh as the restaurant implies. The fries were cold... More

My wife and I ate at Beach Road Chicken Dinners tonight. It's an old style family restaurant in Jacksonville for over 75 years. I've remember eating there since I was a little boy. Nothing has changed in the past 50+ years in terms of atmosphere and food which is served "family style." It remains a favorite of ours and we... More

I do not know if I can say it is the best chicken in the south; however, it was very good fried chicken. The mashed potatoes and gravy stole the side show; the gravy was divine, used it for the biscuits and fries. Didn't like the cream peas at all.

The food tasted okay. My biggest disappointment was that everything on the menu is fried. It would be nice if they had a little more variety.

I grew up in Jacksonville and Beach Road Chicken has always been a staple in our dining experience. Whether it's for lunch after church (I'm coming today!) or a double date on Saturday night, this is thes best place! They bring out a basket of chicken and then bowls of sides, when the bowls empty they come out with more!... More

So we decided to drive from the beach even though we expected it to be busy since we ate here last year. When we arrived at 11:30am. It was slow. HURRAY! Good was awesome, they had the air down a little too much, but great meal. See you next year

Love this Jacksonville Ol' Timer. Always a great meal for a decent price, I don't like chicken on the bone so for me the chicken tenders are the way to go. Very plump and flavorful, I also love their Cherry Cobbler, yum.
