What can I say about Fryers??? It's one of the last of a dying breed; independently owned "mom & pop" fried chicken eat-in/drive through restaurants. Its mainly staffed by high school/college kids with good attitudes and smiling faces. It's been operating in Melrose 4-ever! And it's because the chicken is SO GOOD! I, personally, prefer it to the industry standard,... More

Always a good idea to get a quick supper meal here. Chicken is hot & fresh, & the sides are great as well. ...Cole slaw, & mashed potatoes.

The food here is okay but since it's the only fry chicken place in the area there isn't anything else to compare them to. But definitely not a spectacular to brag about.

My whole family loves this little place. The fried chicken is some of the best. We love the coleslaw and the fritters are to die for. We eat here regularly and share with out-of-town friends whenever we can. Everyone always raves! Try it! You'll like it!

It is good for fast food. I like the chicken livers! Only thing the sides are small servings for the price you pay!!

Always crispy and fresh. It is a pull through restaurant. Just give them your order and it is ready in minutes.

Word of Mouth- yesterday on the way to Gainesville from St. Augustine my family stopped at Fryer's in Melrose. We were treated poorly by the cashier. We placed our order and the cashier put another patrons order in with ours. When we were called to pick up our order my husband asked for a couple sauces and when he opened... More

Best fried chicken in the area. Better than any of the chains. If you are going in a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night get there early. The decor isn't fancy but the food will make you forget about that. Most people get it to take home.

I'm sorry to say we lived in Melrose 2 years before we gave Fryers a try. The fried chicken is hot and delicious and the cole slaw is wonderful (we will go there just to pick up cole slaw!)
