We visit the one on university parkway. Very nice people, always friendly. Best fried chicken around. Great prices. Drive thru makes it easy to pick up and quick.

I have heard so much about this place I just had to come try it. I decided to go for something easy to eat such as chicken fingers or tenders as they call them here so I got a 4 piece Chicken Tender Plate with Mashed Taters and Stewed Apples. I should have only orders a 3 piece plate because... More

I have been a fan of the restaurant for many years. Every time I visit I purchase the ten wings with mashed potatoes as the other items just don't look fresh, but wife says some of the veggies are good. What is disappointing is the service that is provided. Lady doing the drive through seemed like I was a bother... More

Mothers day dinner ruined! I called ahead to ask if I purchased the 21 piece meal could replace the thighs with legs. I was told yes. I drive on the other side of town because this is the location I frequently use. The cashier turns to ask the guy packing. He gives him the go to take the order. Another... More

Well, honestly.this style of fried chicken wasn't to my liking. I realize now I prefer baked chicken. It was greasy and just not what I expected.

Mountain Fried Chicken is an old timey Southern spot that serves cafeteria style with fried chicken as the centerpiece. The chicken looked dry but in fact was juicy with a crispy crust. You can request dark, light, wings, breast strips and all combinations. The sides are where the southern comes out: banana pudding, peach cobbler, green beans with onion and... More

I eat at the location on University Parkway more often than Akron Drive. The food is always fresh and the side selection is very plentiful. The food is in front of you (under glass), which makes selection easy. The coleslaw is obviously kept in a cold area out of site but make sure you order it if you like coleslaw.... More

While this restaurant may not look like much, it provided excellent fried chicken and other goodies. If you like southern cooking, you'll love the menu at Mountain Fried Chicken. Hot food, fast service.

I've noticed the reviews are mixed. My family and I love this place. We usually just get the chicken and potato wedges and only occasionally get other sides. The new location is better than the last one (was next to adult entertainment place). I wish they amp up their sides a bit (green beans are flat, and I do not... More
