this is the second time I've tried this place in 3 or 4 years and thought Id give it another shot. the gravy was watery, the portions were ok. The biggest complaint I have is they only give you dark meat unless you pay extra...for white meat. The food is OK but nothing to get excited about. I found it to be overpriced for what it was.More

Very disappointed with the fried chicken. The coating looks and tastes overcooked and not much flavor. Chicken was tender however. The fries were quite good. Servings were quite small —in fact the dollar fries only filled 1/4 of the box they came in. The thing...that saved the meal was the dollar fries -they were a diamond in the rough. I would recommend them and them alone. Service was very good though.More

We received a big bucket of fried chicken,which were covered with some coating that tasted funny and that was whole chicken this with bones. Instead of salad we got 2 large cartons of...fries, that were ok,but chicken we couldn't eat much due to the bones and funny thick coating.More

They give good-sized portions of chicken tenders and a tiny container of dipping sauce. When I asked for a second, they charged me a dollar. This was after I had given what I consider to be a decent tip. I bought it, but it still...wasn't enough so I finished my meal dipping my tenders and fries in the free ketchup I didn't want. Just strange customer service if you ask me!More

The best Fried Chicken and Poutine I ever had! Handcut fries, local cheese curds, and that sauce is amazing! Best fried chicken sandwich I ever had to!

While this is not a bad place to eat and the service was quick and the food was hot and edible, it also was an average forgettable experience in St. John. If you are looking for a quick place to eat and not looking for...a memorable meal then this is your place. The way the young lady behind the counter was going on, I was expecting a chicken flavor explosion, but sadly that was not the case.More

Tasty southern style chicken. A nice change. Breading is a little heavy for me but my kids like it. Just a little spice sets it apart from anything I've had around town. Good job.

Very thin chicken, almost all batter. I would have preferred KFC (and I am not a big fan), at about half the price.

It is very good buttermilk fried chicken and everything about the poutine side was excellent. However this is expensive and our order took 15 - 20 minutes for it to be ready. There was only 1 customer there ahead of us and he left with...his order before ours was placed. We got 2 of the 2 piece fried chicken meals with poutine sides and 2 drinks. The total was $35. My wife's 2 piece was both dark meat. I certainly would not go here on a lunch break due to the wait time. Overall I encourage people to try this spot since it's kind of unique for the uptown area and it's the best "fast food" chicken you'll get.More

It's good fried chicken but there is nothing spectacular about it. It's a little overcooked and slightly overpriced

My significant other and I stopped by here after running an errand. I had the fried chicken burger and he the portobello mushroom burger. We were both impressed with the quality of food but I'd have to say this was the juiciest, tastiest (but not...greasiest) chicken burger I've ever consumed, hands down.More

Tried the chicken strips and fries. Good quantity, great crispy breading and they nailed the home made fries. A definite must try spot.
