If you love home cooked fried chicken, get yourself into King Edwards. I don't know how people work there because of the amount of grease, but we love the chicken and sides!!

I've eaten at a lot of fried chicken joints around the country and King Edwards is right up at the top. Juicy and tasty. A varied menu. Friendly employees. Convenient location in heart of St Charles. Lunch time rush is crazy, so be forewarned. Don't know why I don't go more often, because each time I go, I am mighty... More

I eat lunch here several times a month. I' always going to try the fish but I never get past the chicken. Great Fried Chicken. What else needs to be said?

We have been going here for years and love it, always a good experience. Pros: Great staff Excellent food (although like my wife says "cant go wrong with fried chicken" Great location Great parking $40 fed 5 Cons: the building is a bit run down and unattractive but dont let that reflect on the business

We have been customers since 2001 both at this location and when they had one in Troy, Missouri. Chicken is consistently good and addicting!

This is a small hole in the wall joint with a few tables. Most people carryout, I believe. Their fried chicken is delicious. Very well seasoned, but not spicy. Good selection of sides, as well. The chicken is always served hot and fresh.

You cannot go wrong here ...go for the gizzards and livers. High quality birds. Tiny place and big take out business. They close a little early by my standards. They do chicken right! ....nuff said!

Hands down, the best fried chicken you will ever eat. A hole-in-the-wall but everything on the menu is great. My family loves it and had been eating KEC for 13 years and counting.
