“minutes off I-95”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

I've been a fan of Beach Road since the '60s. I try to stop by whenever I travel thru Jax. Menu has changed little over the years (except prices) Peas in cream sauce mixed into mash potatoes are to die for. Chicken is hot and crisp and delicious. If you have to carry out it's not quite as good ,due to the box and smaller portions. Usually a line out the door on sunday after church. Nothing fancy but GOOD.

“Gross, over priced”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We live right by beach road chicken so naturally we wanted 2 try they're food. The crammed peas where good, but that was all that was good the chicken and biskets where dry and tuff. Needles to say i was not impressed by they're food. But the service was nice.

“Old Fashioned Dinners”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Down Home Old Fashioned Chicken Dinners and Family Dining! It's a popular spot for the locals and a taste of Jacksonville history! Don't miss this one if you like good southern fried chicken. It's really good!

“Open for lunch now!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This place has been around since the '50's for one reason - amazing fried chicken with all the fixins. Cream peas, biscuits, potatoes and gravy. Used to be the big "after church" lunch, now open for lunch (but I admit, it slows me down after chowing down on such good chicken!)

“Fair chicken place”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

As a fried chicken connoisseur, I was excited when a local friend told me of this place. My husband and I went on the way out of town and ordered a fair sampling of the menu (7+ different items). Pros: It was reasonably priced and you got a good amount for the price. The chicken has a great breading which gives it the possibility to be some of the best chicken. Cons: Very little flavor and overcooking kept it from being good chicken, much less the best. It was bland, which was disappointing. The sides were nothing stellar: crinkle cut fries which tasted about the same as the chicken (more grease flavor and less natural food), assortment of veggies were nothing impressive. Service wasn't the best, either. It was our first time so we had a few questions, and you could tell that the server was put off by this, despite nobody else being there at the time. Overall, it was a disappointment. Spend half the money and go to Popeye's for a better dinner!
