This is hands down the best friend chicken I've ever had! No frills, ordered and ate in the parking lot. The sides are huge!

Due to the hype we expected a lot, but were quite disappointed. It was ok, not bad. But we did not taste any difference to other good fried chicken. Also there was no seating at all... too bad. The pumpkin pie was really good though....More

Hankering for your fried fix? Well Ezell's can fill the bill. The chicken is what they are known for and they do it good. Check it out.

If you are craving fried chicken, Ezell's is the place to go! Terrific chicken and reasonable prices. Sides are good too! You will have to take it to go since there aren't any tables inside. Highly recommend!

The chicken and the sides live up to the high reports. Mashed potatoes and gravy like your Mom made. Plan to eat in the car-no seats indoor or out.

By far, the best cut here are the Chicken Wings, When they cut up their chickens, they take about a 1/4 of the adjacent breast meat off with the wing. That makes these the largest chicken wings you will ever eat, and it's not as...More
