“Awesome - need a 6th circle!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We are SO happy we visited this institution!! The service was fantastic, the food fabulous and the decor fun! The restroom walls are filled with album covers and vinyls. People sign dollar bills and place them on the walls - they come from all over the world. The chicken is quite marvelous and I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a local restaurant with lots of personality.

“The best fried chicken in Chattanooga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Since Champy's opened in 2009, they have owned the title of best fried chicken in Chattanooga. But don't forget the other food items on the menu! The tamales and smoked sausage plate are great. And you'll be blown away by meatiness of the chicken tenders.

Enjoy an ice-cold 40-ounce beer and get a Champy's 40-ounce koozie to take home.

The interior dining area is not very big, but it's welcoming, with walls and ceiling covered with interesting items.

The covered outdoor seating area is great in the summer or winter.

The staff and ownership truly care about the success of their restaurant, and it shows through their service and quality of food.

You can't go wrong with Champy's.

“Fried chicken at it's absolute best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Love love love this place. I'm not a huge bone-in chicken fan, but this is the best fried chicken I've ever had. Great sides, good beer, great atmosphere...nothing bad about this place.

“Good chicken. Great atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Very neat atmosphere for some good fried chicken and catfish. Portions are very large as well. Started with tamales, which were good but not great. Chicken was moist and flavorful as well. Has a very large outside seating area with plenty of fans to keep you cool. Emily gave our table great service as well.
