Went late night and they just had a little bit left. Even though it was slim picking on chicken, it was really good. I got the 3 piece spicy with fried rice and Mac and cheese. The sides were OK, and the chicken was good.

Best chicken in town. Don't let the appearance fool you this place is the real deal. Chicken was hot, juicy and cooked to perfection. Don't judge a book by its cover.

I decided to give this place a shot while in Louisville. The quality of the food superseded the appearance of the building. I had wings and potato wedges. Both were excellent!!

We got the dark meat chicken bucket and some of the thighs were so big- I thought we got breasts. Great place with friendly staff. The drive up order intercoms however were lacking. Go inside for easier ordering.

Can't judge a book by it's cover. It would be easy just to drive on past this restaurant, but if you do you are missing the best fried chicken in Louisville. There is always a line at the drive up window; there is seating inside...More

I am in love with Chicken King! I came here the first time because of the reviews and then came back to bring chicken home on the plane for my family. They agree it's the best fried chicken anywhere. The pieces are large, not those...More

The spicy fried chicken was amazing! It's super casual but very clean with friendly service. Really inexpensive too. Two of us ate until we were very full for a total of $12. Great casual, fast lunch spot.

I got a 2 piece fried chicken breast dinner with two sides and a roll for $6.00. All of it was delicious and you could barely make that meal at home for that price.

The new hot chicken craze has nothing on Chicken King (or Indi's). Chicken King is still the best fried chicken east of I-65 near downtown. Sure they have hot chicken, get their tasty fried chicken and use their hot sauce. Who needs it pre-dipped?
