Chicken fingers seemed fresh, and the fry was crunchy. The fries were a bit soggy, sadly. But I'd eat here again just to support a locally owned business over any national chain, for sure.

Uncle Shug's is the local version of a Zaxby's or a Raising Cane's. The chicken finger plate has always been my personal go at these types of joints. Theirs did not disappoint. Huge tenders cooked to an enjoyable crisp. There are numerous sides including seasoned fries , mashed potatoes and much more! Give this place a try when you are... More

I absolutely love Uncle Shug's fried chicken. We go there almost weekly. I highly recommend this place to anyone who likes chicken and southern sides. I also really like Uncle Shug's BBQ in Brooklet. They also have great service.

Love the fried chicken and the lightly peppered logs! We were on a mission to find the best fried chicken on our past two trips through the south... Stopping at chains and many local spots. We found it at Uncle Shugs!!
