“Good Spicy chicken”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Only open on Tuesdays but it was very tasty. It is just an old Trailer turned into to a small kitchen and you order through a window with a table outside.

“amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This chicken is the real deal! By far the best fried chicken I have ever had. It is a little roadside stand that is a MUST if you want to experience a true southern fried chicken dinner. Can't wait to go back!

“Unique and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Only on Tuesdays - get there early before they sell out! They may have added some days now because it's gotten so poplar - they have THE best fried chicken!- but it used to be only on Tuesdays so you've only got one day to hit it!
