I’ve visited here several times, and the food, service and friendly staff have been consistent each visit. I enjoy this chicken because for me it’s seasoned just right. The baked beans and cold slaw are good sides. Will continue to visit here.

This is hands down the best fried chicken I have EVER had! The place is fairly small, we had a party of 7 and sat outside. Excellent service and excellent food!

Always fresh and service with pride. Great for family dining, with great choices of sides. No waiting for a table unless it is totally crowded. Plenty of parking.

Had a great lunch here! Chicken portions are large, meaty and not at all greasy. Definitely moist! The sides are ok—slaw and Mac and cheese were just fine. But the chicken is worth the visit!
