Where else can you get fried chichen and a 40 oz beer? Chsmpy's. Located across the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Champy's serves up ridiculous fried chicken and fish. Mudt have the tamlies! Odd mixed menu but it works. This place is always busy for good reason. Free on premise parking.

Very casual in a good funky way. Wait staff was attentive and happy to assist you.Chicken was very good but a bit greasy and not a crisp as I would have liked.

Got here just after they opened. My wife and i both ordered the 2 piece white. I opted for beans and she got fries. Our waitress was really nice and friendly.

Family lunch here and we enjoyed everything. The fried chicken and chicken strips were perfectly seasoned and freshly cooked. The buffalo chicken salad was also a nice choice. Friendly service with a nice patio. Make sure you get a 40oz koozie. Kid friendly with parking. We would definitely eat here again.

We were driving through Chattanooga and had to choose one place to eat - not an easy thing to do. Well, the tamales was the deciding factor. The decor is decidedly funky but fun. We sat inside and enjoyed checking it all out. Hubby had the tamales, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Said they were the best he'd had-and we live... More

We don't eat at Champy's as often as we would like, but they have the best fried chicken. All is compared to Champy's when we have it elsewhere and so far there is none better. We also love the fried pickles, tamales and the great atmosphere!

This place is nothing fancy, but great for a family. The fried chicken and hot tamales are excellent as are the sides. We had a large group with kids ranging from 7-15, and our service was great. We did not have to wait, however, we went in the middle of the day. I have heard it can get rather busy.

This is a small restaurant with excellent food and service. I had the 2 piece chicken dinner. The chicken was breaded and cooked excellently, the green beans were awesome, mashed potatoes were good, and the tea was nice and sweet. Our server Hannah was exceptional. She was helpful with everything including the surrounding area.

This place works on several levels. The first is as a dive bar with a kitschy but not over-the-top appeal. This is underscored by the 40 ounce Miller lights in the gigantic coozies they offer to keep them cold. In an adjacent room there were several large tables with family members winding down their New Year's holiday. There are lots... More
