Good chicken served hot and fresh. I prefer a little more seasoning on my chicken, but this was tasty. Cole slaw was good. Mashed potatoes just average, the chicken is the star of the show here. Definitely worth a visit.

We tried this place, and we fell in love their tender and juicy fried chicken. The sides we had were very good, too. The chicken tasted so fresh. We highly recommend this place.

Chicken is good, but they offer gizzards, shrimp, & various fish too. Best in this part of town by far!

Porter's has the best fried chicken in the Lou. Actually, the best I've ever had except for the chicken my great grandmother used to raise, pluck, and fry on her old Franklin stove back in Kernersville, NC. There are other things on their menu, but...More
