Their fried chicken had a thin crispy crust and the chicken inside was very tender. The potato wedges were great too! Definitely would visit again.

Stopped here on a trip back to Atlanta. Fried chicken is fantastic. Very moist with a not to thick crunchy crust. Very friendly staff. Would have given 5 stars but the bathroom is outside the building.
