We got 2 pieces of white meat chicken, a side and a soda along with a "puff" for $6 Included refills. The chicken is fried when ordered so it hasn't been sitting around all day. They even brought the order to us. Chicken was excellent. I had the hot apples as a side and they were good. The desserts looked... More

We see the TV advertisements for Pollards Chicken all the time and decided to try it out. We are local but do not live close to any Pollards Chicken locations, so it was a bit of a drive. We ordered 16 pieces of dark meat chicken to take home with just one side. While waiting for our order, we noticed... More

Good chicken, fair corn pudding, canned "greens" (yuk!). I got a special $5.79 plate which included a wing and a breast of delightfully, delicately coated fried chicken. De-double-licious! Corn pudding was okay, and homemade, but not as good as my old family recipe! When I found out the greens were right out of a can, I passed on getting those.... More

So glad we finally decided to try this place out. The food was awesome. We got a gizzard "snack " and it was more food than we could eat. Delicious country style sides and those "puffs"! Oh my the puffs with honey are worth stopping in for if nothing else. Cant wait to try their regular chicken. The servers were... More

I visited Pollard's for the first time a few weeks ago. I had been hearing about it by word of mouth and tv. I ordered a 2 piece combo with mac n cheese and green beens. I must say it was good. It wasn't greasy and had a good coating and flavor to it. The pieces are a bit small... More

Ordered a pork BBQ dinner and sandwich. Didn't drain the BBQ & the bread was so wet it was like pudding and green beans were full of salt. It tasted like brine. The BBQ was full of grease in the dinner. Probably a slotted spoon would of helped. I called them and they were disinterested in my issue concerning my... More

I was craving fish and decided to stop at Pollard's since it's in my area & you can get take out. Service was very friendly and prompt. I didn't have to wait that long at all, even though they were taking phone orders & there was at least 4 other people in there. I ordered off the Value menu and... More

Absolutely amazing, I love Pollard's Chicken! Don't waste money on these fast food places, mom and pops is the way to go. Great food, real food. Cheap prices! One meal with a drink was only $5.60! Also, they have cobblers and pies! OMG! I almost died. Eat at Pollard's Chicken, get yourself some real southern food.
