Great chicken.

Every time we come to Jacksonville, we eat at the Beach Road Chicken Dinners. This is true southern style fried chicken. The side are served family style. They portions are large enough that we always have leftovers. This is the first time that service has been an issue. It was slow, and we were... read more

I guess nothing stays the same. Everyone is always tampering with recipes that "use" to be good, tried, and true. The ones that made Beach Road Chicken Diner good. I placed an order "to go" tonight, January 3, 2015, Saturday. To my dismay, the chicken was not seasoned "at all", and the dark brown gravy was an imposter of what... More

It was a treat going back to Beach Road Chicken after 30 years or so. The food taste just as I remembered it. It was lunch time and very busy, we had to wait about 30 minutes, It was well worth the wait.The sides, especially the gravy are worth our 30+ mile drive from home.

This place is the best. Was visiting my family for florida Georgia and they changed my life forever with this amazing gem! The gravy is borderline disrespectfully good! A must visit any time in Jacksonville! I've had dreams about this place!

I was weened on Beach Road Chicken Dinners, but was terribly disappointed in the service,food, and health standards last night. I called ahead for take-out and waited twenty-five minutes. I directly saw the kitchen workers without gloves handling food with their hands that weren't gloved. They scratched,picked up register tickets off the floor, and handled money all while grabbing food... More

This restaurant is one of the original restaurants in Jacksonville. They are famous for their fried chicken and family style service. Creamed peas, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, and biscuits accompany the best fried chicken ever. The building looks like a hole in the wall and the atmosphere is very laid back but the food is really good and the portions are... More

I can't believe I was stationed in Jax several years ago yet never found this little gem! It was absolutely delicious. My husband usually says "chicken is chicken" but this place changed his mind. The service was great and the place is so cozy. We got a large amount of food for a great price. I highly recommend it.

This was my worst fried chicken experience ever. The first time I went in the carry out section asked did they have any baked chicken the girl was very nonchalant and said it would be more than 30 minutes before it would be ready. In my hotel restaurant management days we never told patrons that in a "I don't care... More

You do not stay in business this long unless your food is great. Chicken crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Sides are plentiful and tasty. Service was very good. The place is old but well kept and clean. Only place to get real fried chicken in this area.

I have eaten here for over forty years. The chicken is very good. Not much has changed as far as the quality of the food. Some of the employees have been here for over fifty years. They treat you like family.
