The “chicken shack” as it is locally called is good. The chicken sandwiches are very tasty. The chicken is prepared the old school way and is brined before cooking. Or at least that’s what it appears to be and tastes like. The seating outside is...More

Heard a lot about this place. There is no real seating so this is order and go. Overall, quite good brining and batter to end up with a fried or breasted chicken that is quite, quite good. Prices are average.
