Some of us Floridians are originally from the Midwest. In the Midwest if you don't do Fried Chicken well, you are out of business. Here on the Space Coast it is nearly impossible to find true Southern Fried Chicken. However, just go to Fred's Southern Kitchen in Plant City. It is the best.

My husband and I went here and the wait time ucked but that was s because we did not realize just how popular this place was. With that in mind, the food was amazing down home, Southern comfort food. Worth the wait and every penny.

Food is always very good, service is very polite and usually very timely. Parking is sometimes difficult as the crowds at peak times are large. The Johnson Family continue's to provide high quality food with many smiles. Get there early.

Large choice of breakfast foods, from fruit, peach cobbler, fried chicken, pancakes etc. I love eggs but these are probably the worst eggs I have had which was disappointing. Would visit again though
