Your good to go Fried Chicken place,

This Ezell is always busy, day or night. Good size chicken pieces and best eaten within 15 mins out of the oven. Juicy and the original fried never unsatisfied.

Ezell's has a couple locations in Seattle - the main one is across the street from the high school, so there are lots of (nice, polite) high school students as both customers and employees. Definitely have the spicy version! The rolls are a highlight of the sides although all are competantly done. It's an unfancy place, takeout only. A good... More

Had the chicken and didnt like it. The chicken must be cut in unrecognizable piece,s like 12 or 14 cuts. Returned it and the staff was abrasive. Will never return.

I had to try Ezell's on a friend's suggestion. It did not disappoint. I had the spicy chicken combo with mashed potatoes and coleslaw. Everthing was very good. Just a heads up, it is take out only.

I had high hopes for Ezell's after reading so many rave reviews and I must admit I was a little disappointed. First off, it's take out only. The Monday night I was there was crowded with a long line but the service was fast and friendly. We got the original recipe, which was good but a little greasy (yeah, I... More

This is a sketchy area at night but added to the flavorful experience. We bought a bucket and it was way too much food for 2 people.

Fresh and delicious! Spicy or regular take your pick. All the sides we ordered were really good. Baked beans were rich . perfect slaw...tangy sweet cold and crunchy. Mashed potatoes and gravy...Yum. Not over priced at all. The downside is it is take out and one can't wait to get some where to grub!!!

Really great food. The chicken coating is great and even the chicken itself is very flavoursome. The sides are all superb as well. The ONLY detraction is perhaps the price is a bit steep for fried chicken.

I think her ex husband, Ezelle 's fried chicken is much better. His new restaurant is call "heaven sent fried chicken". Used to like Ezell's chicken when it was his a long while back.
