“Best Fried Chicken”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Ordered the two piece dark meat, my husband the three wing dinner. The three wings were each huge! Absolutely the best chicken we've ever had. The baked beans we give the same rave review. Everything was really great, including the service. We sat outside on the enclosed porch/terrace area and loved the atmosphere.

“My family loves it!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

It's located down town and in a weird area but it's still neat. The chicken is great. You need to get the peppers, cheese and pickles appitizers!!! YUM!!!!! Don't forget your dollar bill to sign and hang on the wall. We like eating outside on pretty days! Waitress are very nice.

“Don't judge a book....”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Went looking for this place based on tripadvisor reviews, and got there soon after opening. The place is old and weather beaten, on the edge of an industrial looking area, but just down the hill from the UTC campus. Just 2 or 3 cars in parking lot, so sat there for a few minutes. What sold us was the number of take out orders heading out to people who had parked on the street.

Don't want to make it better than it was, just good fried chicken and good service. Would not hesitate to go back if back in the area. Maybe a little expensive, but not bad. Got the feeling that the night life was pretty interesting, based on all the 40 oz koozies hanging from the rafters.

Oh, and 3 cars waiting on our parking spot when we left.

“Looking for Southern edible comfort”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

On the patio or inside seating, you have to enjoy the energy of locals and happy visitors like us. We were welcomed by an amazing staff of young and gracious folks. Comfort was mandatory, and questions about the town and the menu were welcome.
Our puppy was with us, and she too was made welcome, though Champy's provides only a couple of tables outside. It's very nice in a very busy place.
We went twice for fried chicken. All cuts were well seasoned and the meats was incredibly juicy, and the crunch Devine! I'm still savoring the baked beans. We also had chicken livers and green tomatoes as appetizers, and enjoyed them both.
Living in Chattanooga or visiting, you have to go. Be ready to as you are, take on the great alcohol or non-alcohol beverages, and prepared to lick your lips and fill your bellies! It's the place to enjoy being yourself...with friends and/or family.
Thank you to the Valet staff at the Read House-Sheraton!!!

“Excellent. Nothing fancy just good food”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Loved this place. Food was excellent and the prices very reasonable. The staff was very attentive too. This place is not fancy and it was fun sitting outside.
