“Great flavors in KY!”

Joella's Hot Chicken
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 29, 2018

Wasn't feeling well, so ordered food as carry out. Flavors didn't disappoint - had mildly spiced tenders, mashed potatoes with spicy gravy, and mac/cheese. The dipping sauce recommended went well with these tenders and the tenders were cooked well - still moist and juicy. Mac & cheese advertised as "creamy" - was more "blocky" by the time I returned to my hotel (about 15 minutes) - but flavor was still good.
Would have rather stayed to eat, but just didn't feel up to it. Sounds at this location seemed to echo a bit - brought to life by kids running around and screaming/crying - while parents looked disinterested.
Overall really good grub!

You go for the chicken. Super crispy crust. Hot as you like it - tweener was the equivalent of Hattie B's medium. Mac n Cheese was very good, green beans country style (soft)

I got hot and probably could have gone for fire in da hole, but was afraid since it was my first time! Although it was hot it had great flavor not just straight heat. I got the quarter dark and it came with plenty of chicken goodness. The spiked honey was good, as was the sweet vinegar slaw.

First time visiting this restaurant, but I'll sure be back. Well-portioned Chicken N Waffles and the Macoroni & Cheese is excellent. A great meal between $8-$10 price point for lunch or dinner.

Not an expert on hot chicken, but expected the tenders to be crispy. The flavor good and juicy but because no crust the outside was a little tough. Pimento ranchero sauce was very good on the fries! Liked the boylens soft drinks.
