There's nothing better than fried or grilled chicken tenders and Abner's serves them up right. So excited to find this local gem. Will be back!

Had a late dinner here after our drive from KC (9 hours). We wanted to try something that we didn't try last visit. So, when compared to Gus' it doesn't compete in our book. Small tenders so order more than you think. Tenders are piping hot from the fryer, but fries are cold. Best thing was the cole slaw. Probably... More

If you have a craving for some excellent fried chicken tenders, then Abner's is the place for you! Here you'll get real southern style fried chicken with typical side dishes in a casual and friendly atmosphere. But be warned, the sweet tea isn't for the faint of heart! When they say sweet, they mean sweet! I would recommend Abner's without... More

Lunch time in Oxford so we drove around looking. Abner 's looked interesting. Ordered chicken tenders with sauce and Cole slaw. Tasty chicken with a tangy dipping sauce. Fries were good. Slaw was excellent. Bread topped it off. Very happy with the choice.

Was in a rush for lunch and Abner's was the spot. Parking in front and quick turnaround. We enjoyed our wraps and tenders.

I moved back to NC after a brief sojourn in MS and one of the few things I miss is Abner's. The chicken is delicious. Need I say more?

Great chicken tenders, fries, slaw and garlic bread toasted. The tea is fresh daily. You can order grilled and fried tenders in your one order. The cheesecake is delicious too. Never a bad meal at this Abner's in Oxford, MS.

The prices aren't crazy, the food is good and the chicken is really really juicy and tender. There's not really much else I can say about it. My only issue is that some of the sauces aren't that great. They're mostly mayo-based. I advise you stick to the Honey Mustard, Ketchup and Mustard, or bring your own sauce.

ALWAYS phone in our order for our tent in The Grove on football Saturdays. While the chicken fingers are divine the sauce is fantastic. No worries about left overs as the chicken and sauce are guaranteed to be gone before kick off!

This was a complete debacle yesterday. We ordered on friday for a small pickup of 20 strips on Saturday (yesterday). We got there and the restaurant was a complete madhouse (staff wise) yet only about 15 customers were in the store. We were pretty much ignored after asking where our take out order was. After about 45 mins of being... More
