As far as fried chicken goes theirs is the best, though their prices have recently risen very steeply.

Stopped for a bit before heading home. Its an eat-in fast food place, but the chicken was excellent. The batter was crisp and quite different. My surprise was the price, not sure if it was a Sunday special or just a great price. Service was quick, the place clean. Just off the highway, great for a quick stop or take... More

96% of the time the chicken is really really good. I say 96% because on the rare occasion it isn't cooked to perfection and isn't super crispy. But the majority of the time it is delicious. Get the crispy and spicy flavor of the chicken because it is much better than the original and it is not spicy at all.... More

The chicken was very tasty and not greasy at all. The fries were "very good" in my son's opinion. The price was average. The gentleman at the till was very kind and service oriented. I could tell he really enjoyed his job.......this created a positive dining experience! Two thumbs up!

This could be a typical fast food restaurant except for one thing; the ribs that they served were quite good. Perhaps not great but a worthwhile alternative to the burgers and fast food chicken. The food had by the others in the group appeared satisfactory. The service was fast, the staff friendly and efficient so if you find yourself in... More

Affordable, coated chicken that tastes and appears less greasy than KFC. Lots of tables inside. Affordable choices for eating in or takeout. If you like fried type chicken this place is worth a try.

The spicy chicken strips with the ranch dip sauce is my fav. & it comes with a biscuit. What's really cool is that they got cream soda pop on fountain. Staff is always friendly.

If you're in need of a greasy food fix, this is the place. Good chicken and fries with the fixings that will leave a grease mark on the box.

I had the dry, over-cooked original recipe chicken at the same time my husband was enjoying the moist, well-cooked crispy/spicy recipe chicken. We brought his leftover piece home. Skip the biscuit, it wasn't was dry as my chicken, but it was close. We will probably go back in a few years. I guess there is a reason no one at... More
