“Fried chicken and coleslaw - yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have made their coleslaw many times -but I don't think they gave the full recipe to the newspaper. Only open a short time during the day and no signage with the name. You really have to be "in the know" to get lunch here. It is very tasty.

“Over hyped but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Simple enough. Only one sandwich on the menu. Tasted fine, but nothing special. Certainly can do better for the price and definitely not worth driving out of your way for.

“Amazing! One of a kind!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This visit is really one of a kind and will make your day. Though pricey the chicken sandwich, lemonade and any of the baked items are truly a delight. The food coupled with the experience is truly unique.

“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The fried chicken sandwich, what else?!! Simple concept, but so well executed that you will understand the long line (which moves quickly) once you take a bite. I like a little hot sauce on mine, but I think the really fresh slaw they use is what makes this baby sing.

“Chicken sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

That sandwich is a monster but oh so good - fried chicken with spicy slaw - worth waiting in line for. I have not tried anything else though.
