Although Martin's is very crowded around lunch time the wait is totally worth it. On the other hand, they obviously do a massive amount of take-out meals if you can't wait. Perhaps the best aspect of eating there is that the serving size is always more than enough. The fried chicken and cornbread is outstanding but so are the deserts.

Sunday lunch doesn't get any better than this. Homemade lemonade, warm rolls, and the best roast beef ever!! Make sure you get some extra gravy.

Locals love this place, the front is always packed for take-outs, but I find it only middle of the road. The three best things on the menu are roast beef and gravy, fried chicken, and any vegetable that does well over-cooked, like turnip greens and green beans The cornbread is excellent. I find it better for lunch than dinner, dinner... More

This was recommended as the best local place for fried chicken. Yes! Excellent. Also good fries. Very busy place around lunch time. It's a bit out of the way, but a great place to eat. Go here.

I would like to warn everyone to stay away from this restaurant. If there was a way that a restaurant could receive a negative rating it would be a -5 star. My family and I decided to try Martin Restaurant according to the reviews to the previous reviews on how excellent the food was. Well regardless of the many 5... More

The best fried chicken in town or choose from many other daily specials that won't break the bank, served up in a pleasant, homestyle atmosphere with fast and courteous service.

Southern comfort food at it's best! This restaurant made you feel right at home as soon as you walked in the door. Cheerful décor with oilcloth on the tables and newspaper and magazine accolades on the walls. Menu changes daily including entrees and sides. A lot of customers were greeted by name, and they were crazy busy with take out... More

What a find! Our food was wonderful! The best fried chicken, corn bread, creamed corn, peas, and a piece of lemon pie not to be believed! Fun atmosphere and great service!

We ate here last night. We are in Montgomery to visit Civil Rights locations to gain an understanding of the events of the 1950's-60's. Everything at this restaurant is fried so avoid it if you don't want fried food. We also got a heavy serving of racist opinions from our waitress - unbridled hatred and undisguised fear of African Americans... More

If you are anywhere near Montgomery stop here. Martin's epitomizes southern comfort food. Everything is made from scratch and is accompanied with some of the best cornbread muffins I've ever had.
