“Great service, excellent chicken and fried biscuits”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Ordered the chicken breast meal and an order of fried biscuits. The biscuits were served with powdered sugar and apple butter. Delicious. The chicken was very juicy and good tasting, and wasn't drenched in oil from frying. The service was very good and the staff was incredibly friendly. Give this place a try next time you are in the mood for good chicken.

“Good chicken, friendly fast service.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Ordered the 11 piece dinner with mashed potatoes, gravy and cole slaw.
The chicken was very lightly battered, fried crisp and juicy. The seasoning is very subtle, so you mostly taste chicken and not salt.
The mashed potatoes were instant and the gravy was ok but unremarkable. The cole slaw was tasty. The staff is very friendly.
The prices seem a little high, but this is a small mom and pop establishment and I like to support them when I can.
So, if you're in the mood for fried chicken and looking for something a little different, give the Chicken Inn a try.
