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.

I used to live near Ezell's and tried their fried chicken several times. I kept waiting for the 'Wow, now I see why Oprah has this flown in' experience. But never did. I actually got better fried chicken at the deli counter at the Red Apple on jackson and 23rd.

We visit Ezell's each time we are in Seattle. It is a favorite of our family. Try the Faygo soda, not available anywhere else. We like regular; our son likes spicy. The rolls are good, but a pat of butter would make them better.

I had heard this was the best chicken on a radio review of Seafair events. We grabbed take-out chicken - and it was very good. I would definitely eat their chicken over most others. Sides were tasty too.

Old fashioned fried chicken and potato salad like great grandma made. They don't deliver but walk or drive to get some. You'll think you're in heaven.
