Their fried chicken, whether bone-in pieces or strips, is the best in town in my opinion. No pre-packaged over-breaded strips. Just the real thing, cut onsite, perfectly seasoned and not over-fried. I love their food!

Our family loves the food at Belle's. We eat here often but it's really nice to take someone from out-of-town as it's such a unique place to go.

Great service, fantastic main course and sides. Not sure how anyone could give this place a bad review. Chicken was better than Babe’s in my opinion. Side were just as good as well. Just wished they served the salad like Babe’s. Highly recommended.

I have been to both and hands down Belles is better. I live an hour away and it is worth the drive! No need for dessert with their rolls, but I always have to get it anyway!
