In the South it is easy to find chicken spots and BBQ dens, but too many of them are same 'o'--same 'o' mega corporate clones on a corner. Think about a Big Box store the sells a product other than electronics . . . . The real challenge is to find a chicken spot that doesn't merely offer a product... More

Used to frequent this location about 2-3 time per week. Over the past 8-12 months the pricing has increased too much for the quality and quantity of the food served. Also see an on going pattern of afternoon, evening and weekend employees that are young and really don't want to be there or to serve customers. I will say that... More

My teenage boys (3 big high school football players) enjoy the food as well. The desserts were delicious (strawberry shortcake, brownies, rice crispy treats) and huge for only approx. two... More

Had to stop here just because of the name! Food was really good. The spicy garlic sauce is awesome!!! Meals are cooked to order so the food is hot when you get it. Prices are good also. A must stop by and visit.

Horrible! Drove over 2 hours for this?! Catfish was wet and undercooked, coleslaw was old and smelled like rotten cabbage, fries were soggy, and the hush puppies tasted like hard dough balls. Just awful! I normally don't write comments on any site, but being in the military and coming up on Memorial Day I thought I'd post a memory I'd... More

Let's face it, there are a few "quick chicken" places all over in small towns in Georgia next to convenient stores... Especially in my area. The difference at Cotton Pickin' Chicken, is the staff. The girls are always friendly, accurate with your order and the food is fast and fresh! We usually grab and go on the fly because we... More

I ordered 20 wings, 10 X Hot and 10 Mild. While they tasted good, the wings were small. Like for children or something. The fries had a little too much salt also. The service was great, and the food was hot and ready in a timely manner.

Order and pick up from CPC once a week or more. The wings are good and properly-sized. Their chicken salad is excellent, and I usually order a quart to eat along on the next day for lunch. We frequent CPC often and will continue to do so.

We stopped at the Cotton Pickin Chicken today (July, 2013) while driving through Georgia. We had the fried chicken tenders, fried chicken livers, collard greens, fried corn on the cob, macaroni and cheese and sweet tea. Everything was delicious, reasonably priced and served with a friendly smile and small talk. I loved all the chicken pictures and knick-knacks. If I... More
