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.

Picked up some fried chicken dinners to go. It was the best fried chicken we have had in a long time. Very nice person on the phone and at the pick up counter. She made sure the order was complete and that I had a box to carry it safely in the car. Good prices and fast service. Was ready... More

Some of the BEST Friend chicken I've ever had (almost as good as momma's). Their creamed peas are EXCELLENT.

This was my first visit to the "infamous" Beach Road Chicken. I've been reading positive reviews of the place for sometime and really had a hankering to give it a try. I got the chance to stop by for lunch. For some reason, I thought this place was a casual quick serve restaurant boy was I wrong. They serve a... More

Okay first, I've read some of the negative reviews of this joint and I had to chime in. This is not a five star restaurant, it's not supposed to be! I have been here 4 times so far and here's my take on it. The service was perfect, friendly and could not be better. The food is fantastic, it's soul... More

Today we came here again at around 2-3 PM, after not being so impressed the time before....I can honestly say that we were both totally disgusted and will seriously consider whether or not to give them anymore of our money. First of all, when my wife's chicken order came out, the "fried chicken" was literally cold....WTH....Fried Chicken is COLD?? When... More
