This place had AMAZING fried chicken! We were there around noon on a Friday (just in time for their lunch rush), so we waited about 45 minutes before returning. They were still busy, but the bulk of the lunch crowd was gone. The service was great, the fried chicken was absolutely amazing, and the restaurant itself is just a neat... More

The chicken was great my family of 4 loved it. We had baked beans and green beans both just okay. The only thing we did not enjoy was the ice tea it was not good at all I think it was the water having an off taste. We would go back for the chicken

If you want to eat some great chicken, this is the place. The inside of the restaurant could use some upgrades with new tables and chairs, as they are very worn. The staff is friendly and provide good service. The food was plentiful and very good.

Champy's is the best fried chicken I have ever had. The chicken tender basket (it's not lame chicken tenders like you are thinking of, I promise) is to die for. The chicken is excellent there! Every time I am in the city, I stop by for some Champy's. It has a cool, casual atmosphere that accepts anyone and everyone! 10/10... More

Fantastic chicken! One of the best in Chattanooga. Get the chicken strips. They are about the size of one half of a chicken breast each, battered and deep fried. And the vegetables are seasoned just right. A must visit!

The food was tasty and the service outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Visited the one in Chattanooga downtown. I'm sure the one on Lee Hwy is just as good. The atmosphere and sitting outside is a plus. Try it out you won't regret it.
