Then you must stop here! Chicken is cooked fresh as it is ordered. If you want to be in and out in 5-10 minutes, then you need to call ahead, because no chicken is precooked. The batter is not thick and crunchy, but lightly battered, seasoned and cooked to perfection. So good in fact, that we ordered a dozen more pieces to take home! Service was good and restaurant had a quaint atmosphere. Not very many people there while we visited, but the "Take Out Window" had several people waiting.
