This really is a hole in the wall, but the food we got was very good. I got the spicy wings since that seemed to have the best reviews from previous patrons. The wings were excellent and the prices are very reasonable for the amount...of food you get. I got fries as my side and they were decent. If I’m around that area again I will definitely stop in.More

Best tasting chicken in the area. Been coming for years and still haven’t been disappointed. Bring cash only method used here. Order the wings ( my go-to )

Extremely good chicken. Parking can be a challenge and there is really no place to sit while waiting on your order. This is a takeout only restaurant. The chicken is mouth watering delicious. Great to order and take home.

I must add that some people may be turned off by the location. But its really not that bad, and its basically the optics. The chicken is good, tasty and fresh. I will not say this is the best chicken I have ever had. But...this is hands down some good chicken. The rice is the standard Chinese fried rice. They kind of took most of the stuff off the Chinese restaurant menu and kept the different fried rices (beef, pork, shrimp) , including the delicious fried chicken. I think its work the trip for a fried chicken lover. I was satisfied by my choice, its not that far from downtown Houston. FYI, this is basically takeout , I did not see a place to eat in.More

First time ordering from #1 Chicken- son gave us a great recommendation and knew we'd like the fried chicken, and we did! Ordered the spicy wings w/fried rice and the 3pc. meal w/fries. Only the wings come spicy. Chicken didn't disappoint but rice was nothing...to rave about. Only a take-out cash only place. Will order a bucket for our next picnic.More
