Best fried chicken! But the rolls are to die for! The rolls can last 2 days. They're huge. Better than anywhere I've ever eat!

This place is a definite hole. I went here on the advice of a friend and was glad I did. The chicken was amazing and the rolls add ten pounds by simply looking at them, but the place is scary (location and looks).

Donahoo's Chicken is very tasty. It is not as greasy as other fried chickens I have tasted. Plenty of sides to choose from.

Chicken strip & fat fries are awesome. Been around for about 50 years. Cash only, no ATM cards. On Garey across from Staters.
