I remember Dina's chicken from back in the "60's and have had good memories about the quality of the fried chicken. I've driven past this location for years and decided to stop in. I ordered three pieces of chicken and a biscuit to-go. It was at 8:30p at night, and the restaurant parking lot, located at the corner of a... More

I visited based on seeing Dinah's advertised on the Food Network. The restaurant is small and located in a strip mall, and it appeared most of its business came from takeout. However, I ate in, and enjoyed 3 pieces of chicken, a roll, really good pineapple coleslaw, and creamy macaroni and cheese. The chicken was served piping hot, and it... More

I fell in love with their recipe about 1985 when I worked down the street. Now I live more than an hour away and will make a point to stop if in the area at lunch or dinner.

Don't miss it no more! Bad English, good chicken! Fried chicken the way you remember it and all the fixins' (more bad English) mashed potatoes, cole slaw, yum deserts. To go or dine in, old but clean. Prices good. You got to try it and you will probably go back!

Great quality food and exceptional service! Was given an extra piece of chicken as a courtesy and the food was out very quickly! Savory and crunchy chicken and a delicious potato salad the applebutter on a roll reminded me of my mothers!

This place is sooooo delicious! All of the sides, pies, & chicken were made to perfection. So worth leaving feeling stuffed! Very reasonable prices. Service was out of this world. Two thumbs up (well, eight thumbs up since there were four of us)! Going back, for sure!

I ordered the new menu items waffles with fried chicken, it was okay. The small restaurant feels like your in grandma's country kitchen. The chicken was perfectly cooked but lacked a great seasoning which just made it taste average. I've had this combination of items at other restaurants like Roscoe's which is much better.

The chicken was moist and juicy. The skin was perfectly seasoned and just a little crunchy. I have had fried chicken in a LOT of places and this was up there with the very, very best. Great service, too, very friendly. If you are anywhere near this place, you MUST try it.
