The chicken and fish has been consistent never greasy. The corn nuggets are great! We have had the chicken several times and have not been disappointed. The fish is also very good. The shrimp are good just very small.

The staff are great the inside to small but clean. I think they can get a bigger place and more parking space.

This is a slightly lower version of a KFC. The chicken is well prepared and quite tasty. The sides, however, are bland and just aren't anything to get excited about. No waiters or waitresses but once you get to the counter, service is reasonably quick. Mostly a take out place.

I went here one time---the last time. Restaurant was dirty, the staff rude, and the most important thing, the food was terrible. Overcooked, and it took a long time to be served, which was hard to understand, since I was the only customer at the time.

Being from Maryland, had to stop. Good eats. If you like fried chicken, you won't be disappointed. Somewhat limited menu, but what are you here for? Recommended!

Maryland Fried Chicken has been the place to go for fried chicken since the 1970s. The chicken is fried up just right with great flavor and not too greasy as others have mentioned in their reviews. I also recommend the fried catfish and fried shrimp dinners.

Located on Main St but there is also an access from the street behind the restaurant. We had been told the food was excellent and found that to be a true recommendation. Good parking. We went for a late lunch. There are four booth tables seting 4 each and obviously getting mostly used by customers awaiting a pickup of their... More

Had a yearning for some good chicken but was net with unbelievably rude counterperson. I asked her what was good and she snapped "you see the menu on the wall, whatever." My friend said to me, "let's forget it." Place was dirty, slow, unfriendly counter staff.
