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?

The place is not fancy at all. It has the very best fried chicken I have ever eaten. Get the spicy chicken. Super crunchy and perfect. It has a huge amount of flavour and spice. The sides are excellant. To boot it is also really inexpensive.

We wanted to eat some real Kentucky fried chicken while in Louisville, and chose Chicken King based upon online reviews. It was terrific!!!!! They have a convenient drive-through window. We ordered chicken wings and a "keel" (breast with a little extra bits of the chicken), and gobbled it down. Totally delicious food that is worth every calorie. Really friendly service... More

We made a lunch stop here on our way to Memphis from Ohio. The fried chicken was very delicious and so were the sides but the spicy buffalo wings were disappointing. It was as if they poured a bottle of tabasco over the wings. You couldn't taste anything of the wings anymore and the whole thing just got soggy.

We always order wings from here for any big gathering. I usually call in the large order and it's always hot and ready when I come to pick it up. I have used them for everything from small basketball viewing at the house to large rehearsal dinner while decorating for a wedding. My teenage boys love the wings, wedges, and... More

Here's how good Chicken King is: It's stupid how good it is! Nope, it's not in a great neighborhood and I'd never send my wife there by herself. And forget the long line at the drive-through. Get out of your car, go into the restaurant and get your food to go. Order the spicy chicken. There's something addictive in the... More
