I love the new location! The space is larger and it seems like the diamond in the village center! The food is always deeeeelish! The staff are always friendly, patient, and customer service driven. I appreciate their attention to detail and my food is ALWAYS fresh. I would recommend calling your order in ahead of time as it takes about... More

I told my colleagues at work I'd just pick up some chicken from Popeyes. Little did I know that there wasn't a Popeyes in Columbia. I heard about the carry out from my students and have to say it was alright chicken. Things that could be improved: - online ordering - a deep cleaning of the facility - when ordering... More

A friend at work suggested I go to Chick 'n Friends after I cried about not having fried chicken that met my standards. Well the place is unassuming. Worth the trip from anywhere. I can only tell you the chicken and sides were worth the time and trip. No eating area in the shop. The BEST.

Usually opt for Popeyes but found this spot based on the reviews gave it a shot. Ordered ahead since it's a 20 minute wait, and upon driving up to the mall, you have to walk around a corner to find it. Worth the drive and wait. May be the best fried chicken I've ever had. Super crispy but not overly... More

Being the foodie that I am, I searched for the best sold food in the Elkridge / Columbia area. Chick 'n Friends came up in my search, and we decided to go. The place is located in the Long Reach Shopping plaza. Its not a very attractive area, but I have seen much worse. Don't count them out on the... More

I was reluctant to try this place since everyone has a different version of "good" friend chicken, but this place blew our socks off! I have NEVER tasted anything so close to homemade in my entire life! When I say this chicken is good and you should be in your car right now going to get some, I mean it!... More

Been to this place a couple times now. The fried catfish is excellent and the lemon cake is off the hook. Great fried chicken as well. Not crazy about the biscuits...corn bread was just ok. Menu is reasonably priced. Nice to have a reliable soul food place like this in the area. Call ahead, this is not fast food and... More
