“Expensive OK fried chicken.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

I think her ex husband, Ezelle 's fried chicken is much better. His new restaurant is call "heaven sent fried chicken". Used to like Ezell's chicken when it was his a long while back.

“Famous, but not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

I used to live near Ezell's and tried their fried chicken several times. I kept waiting for the 'Wow, now I see why Oprah has this flown in' experience. But never did. I actually got better fried chicken at the deli counter at the Red Apple on jackson and 23rd.

“Crispy chicken, old-fashioned style”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

We visit Ezell's each time we are in Seattle. It is a favorite of our family. Try the Faygo soda, not available anywhere else. We like regular; our son likes spicy. The rolls are good, but a pat of butter would make them better.

“Seafair booth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

I had heard this was the best chicken on a radio review of Seafair events. We grabbed take-out chicken - and it was very good. I would definitely eat their chicken over most others. Sides were tasty too.
