This is a small town locally owned fast food place that serves really good fried chicken. They also serve hand scooped ice cream. Nothing fancy here just really good fried chicken.

Working in Rochelle, I do like to eat here often. If you like good fried chicken or chicken strips or real ice cream sundaes this is the place to go. They offer a large menu sure to please everyone's taste.

We eat here every once in a while and enjoy the fried chicken and ice cream. It's a quiet little place with seating outside or in.

I work here and I still love the food. I recommend it to everyone; especially for the chicken that they're famous for.
