Came for lunch; seated quickly. All locals which made the place interesting. Fried chicken was tasty, sides were not as good. We liked the fried green tomatoes and okra with corn. Cucumber salad tasted and looked old, macaroni and collards were awful, cole slaw as OK. Lemonade tasted artificial. Portions are large. We were not offered any desert so I... More

Easy to get to from the interstate and located at end of a shopping center for parking is easy. Down home country cooking. You better be hungry but, the cooked vegetables were very bland. The fried chicken was absolutely delicious! I noticed quite a few people taking left-overs home; just as I did. We should have split a meal. Couldn't... More

The service was excellent and several of the meat dishes were good. The fried chicken was very good and the grilled pork shop was good. The side dishes were average at best. The pie that they were proud of was also average at best.

Martins is definitely not for everyone, It is a small meat & 3 from the old days. But it has the best fried Chicken anywhere!! The staff is friendly and the portions are huge. For around $10 with sweet tea included your plate is enough for 2 meals.

The south is notorious for wonderful meat and 3's and Martin's is one of the oldest ones in Montgomery. They're famous for their fried chicken but be sure to ask for dark meat if you don't like white meat. There's usually a wait unless you get there early.

Went there last week for the first time, it is very popular and crowded, I just don't know why. The tables are all crammed very tightly together. The food was mediocre to bad. I had their fried chicken, and what they served me was 2 way over cooked chicken backs. Terrible, sides were coleslaw, red beans, and sweet potato casserole.... More

Best meat and three in town. Delicious fried chicken and vegetables. Friendly servers. Huge portions--always enough for two meals. Tables are a little tight and they are always busy.

Not that they need any more excellent reviews but I'll throw gas on the fire anyway. Martin's is home cookin' done right. Meat and 3. Get some! We thought we would be early at 10:55 on a Tuesday. We got out of the car and then noticed about 20 more people jump out of their cars like some kind of... More
