The chicken tenders are huge (as are the chicken breasts) and the seasoning is spot-on. They serve the typical accompaniments (mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and biscuits) and all of those are tasty as well. My husband had the hot roast beef sandwich which was huge and also very yummy. Service was just as good as the delicious food!

I have been going to RC's since the early 90's. This place never disappoints. I always get the chicken fried chicken. It's the best I've had. All of the sides are family style, which can make it a little more fun I suppose. They have good meal deals as well - they have a deal for 2 or a deal... More

We stopped in because it was going to be a 45 minute wait at the Martin City Brewery & we could smell the good food smells coming from RC'S. What a great choice we made! It was every bit as good as Strouds! The chicken was crunchy & juicy. The chicken noodle soup was great. I saw another lady having... More

My parents wouldn't go in for a 60th anniversary party so they went for a lunch at RCs instead with some of their nieces and nephews. The arrangements were set up well, the food was good for a lot of different tastes. The portions were huge. I saw a couple of birthday parties and other anniversary parties too. Good for... More

Every time our children come in town they HAVE to eat at RC's and that's what we did last weekend. Between the five of us we ordered fried chicken, cat fish, chicken fried steak and steak and it was all delicious. Max was our waiter and he gave us great service. This is a family friendly, reasonably priced restaurant and... More

Green beans with white biscuits, butter and a huge salad all included in one price. Plenty of leftovers. Fried chicken was hot and greasy. Tasted like the grease gets when it's time to be changed. Our son loved it. He thought it was the best he'd ever had.

A friend had recently told us about the breakfast sliders (sausage, egg on a large biscuit smothered in sausage gravy) - so a group of friends had to check out the entire breakfast menu. The breakfast selections are hearty - so come hungry. The eggs were cooked to perfection and everyone liked their selections. Our server was friendly and accommodating... More
