Phil's Chicken is a very, very popular local restaurant. The chicken is simply very tasty and unique. Not fancy. Recommend.

Have been coming to Phil's for over 40 years. Always quality chicken and food. Until tonight. Slow service, slow meal delivery. And then it begins....My wife's quarter chicken arrives. Burned. Chicken and biscuits I ordered, portion was way smaller than I am used to getting. I asked the waitress, “This is chicken and biscuits?" She replies, "Yeah, the BISCUIT" is... More

Phil's seems to do a really good job of catering, but at our last visit to the restaurant we thought the food at the buffet bordered on institutional style food. We also thought it was a bit expensive for what you got and the quality. Some things were really delicious, such as the coleslaw and salads. We found the chicken... More

If you are hungry, it is fun to walk in, order the buffet and not have to wait. Phil's Chicken House is great for this. Kind of an old, out of date interior, but a very nice buffet selection. The chicken tastes wonderful with the famous Phil's marinade, plus many other buffet choices make it VERY easy to eat too... More

We came here after a memorial service when the first place we wanted to go was not open for lunch. We had 20 in our party and they were a little reluctant at first but told us to come on in. I heard this was a place that we had to come to as the food is excellent. Most of... More

Still a good stop but was better in years past. Buffet is complete and price is to be expected. Staff is efficient.

Phil's is a locals favorite place to eat. This restaurant has been open since the 1960's (if not before). In Phil's prime he ran at least three of these establishments locally. But as he aged, slowly they closed back to just one. An excellent place to eat when you just want to sit back and enjoy Homestyle. Our family members... More

I have actually had their food on a number of occasions. In my opinion it is pretty average for the category. They are knowm for their chicken; however, I have had better from a (non-local) grocery store. My relatives from the Midwest (where this type of food is even more common) agree it is good/average.

Excellent buffet and very reasonable. Some of the best tasting chicken you will find. Fantastic variety of entrees and top it off with complementary homemade pie.

Phil's has been in business a very long time. As well as their restaurant, they cater. Almost everyone in the area has enjoyed a graduation party, baby shower, or an outdoor wedding with Phil's catering the meal. Phil's chicken is cooked slowly; it just about falls off the bone. Their salads, bread, and pies are home-made, and taste old-fashioned in... More
