We were visiting Franklin and found this place due to the high reviews. While some may love it, our family was highly disappointed. There's a little piece of chicken surrounded by huge funnel cake type batter. The fries were ok. The salad with broiled chicken was good. But the other two got fried tenders and ended up tossing them. Very... More

Everything is cooked to order after you place your order. Menu is limited to chicken. But it is good!! Salads are full of field greens, no round ball lettuce. Restaurant is loud. They have current magazines to read while your food is prepared. Restrooms always clean. Staff are friendly and eager to serve you. Always closed on Sunday.

I've lived here a long time, how did I miss this place! I ordered the broiled chicken fingers and fries. Excellent meal, I'll definitely be back!

Whenever I travel thru Nashville I try to stop at Maniac's. Great spicy fries, egg rolls and chicken tenders. .

The title sums it up. My chicken was tasteless, tempura batter that was too soaked in grease to have much crunch. My fries were limp and also tasteless. Though this place seems to keep a crowd, chains like Zaxby's and Chik-Fil-A have this place beat hands down!

I visited this restaurant for dinner after hearing a couple of people rave about the food. It is not a fancy place but the food is incredible and the staff is very friendly. They checked on my satisfaction with the meal several times. I had their fried chicken tenders. They were delicious. I will go back there again when in... More

I decided to try Manics after a Costco run. I was craving some fried chicken covered in sauce and this place seemed to fit the bill. We dinned in on a somewhat busy Saturday afternoon. The boy taking our order was friendly, however when I ordered the 4 tender tossed in the bang bang sauce (very spicy the menu board... More

Menu looks limited, but being a chicken strip guy it was good enough for me. The breading was awesome. The coyote sauce was awesome. The seasoned fries were awesome. You get the point. Must try while in the area!

This place is great - the west Texas egg rolls are out of this world! The battered chicken tenders are wonderful- light without being greasy - and the sauces are homemade - my favorite is honey mustard. Do yourself a favor- try this place out

We went here on a whim and we were all pleasantly surprised at how good it is. Maniac's has a small menu so it is easy to choose. I swear, we had one of everything and every single item was delicious. It is reasonably priced and the service is nice.
