I was told about this car hop/ carryout only food stop. The chicken was somewhat spicy which was a welcome surprise. It probably ranks in my personal Top Ten and I've had chicken all over the country. If you don't mind dining in your car, this place is highly recommended.

Just like the old days drive up in vehicle ...place order for great food via speaker.. great food delivered to your car ..then sit back with Windows down and enjoy the outdoors while you eat Chicken is the best around. Let's keep it alive.

We have gone to Mr. D's for years, and I absolutely adore their mushrooms and their spicy chicken. Their onion rings are yummy but nothing overly spectacular and the drive up style is fun and nostalgic. However I was severely disappointed the last few times I visited by the staff behavior. Whoever was supervising did not have their shift in... More

I really used to love eating here. They used to have the best fried chicken. The last several times we've tried to eat here have been awful. They either say that they are out of the fried chicken (even when it's earlier in the day), the order ends up being wrong, or the chicken we get is dried up and... More

We were getting chicken from the nearby and famous-in-certain-circles Bon Ton Mini Mart, and decided to try fried chicken from here at the same time. Needless to say, there were some logistics involved, but we would up with the same pieces from both places for a fair taste test. We loved the seasoning used by Mr. D's; I wouldn't call... More

There's a reason people come from all over to see Mr. D's. It's awesome. To the last reviewer complaining about the greasiness and etc...What did you expect at a drive in located in Kentucky? I've been eating here since I was a kid and will keep stopping in whenever I can (I live in Dubai now so it'll be awhile).... More

Read about this in a food book and here on Tripadvisor. Was disappointed. My wife had a grilled cheese which was soggy. The fries were done Ok but the kind you can buy frozen. I had the fried chicken which is suppose to be famous. But famous for what? It was bland and very greasy. You have to get your... More

Mondays and Tuesdays they have a deal on hamburger's. They aren't the little burgers you get at fast food joints.They are twice the size of regular burgers. Their chicken is tasty and crispy and you can call and it will be ready when you get there. Great food and prices
