Have been coming here for years

My family has been coming here for years, and after all these years, just recently was I let down for the first time. I had been out on the road for over a year and had not eaten here in that year plus some time before that, so I was super excited to finally be able to eat here again.... read more

Our work team of 8 people went here for lunch and had a great time! The family style serving made all of us interact with each other more than we normally would. The food was delicious and not one person had a negative thing to say. We will definitely be going back.

The AC unit outside was so load I thought it was going to blow up. Now the chicken was great. The coleslaw had way too much vinager and as always... More

We had not been to BRC in years and wanted something different. The restaurant was just as we remembered-non descript with a sea of tables and chairs. Our server was a very pleasant young lady with a great attitude. We ordered the fried chicken dinners with the creamed peas, cole slaw and mashed potatoes. These are the main menu items.... 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

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. 'They have other entrees so you are not limited to... 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.
