The "best sweet tea since he's been here" according to my son-in-law. The best most tender roasted chicken I've ever had. Their chicken tenders and fried okra were delicious too. The service was excellent also.

Saw this place as I was driving by and stopped to get chicken tenders. I was not impressed by the staff as they seemed dis-interested in being there however the food was AMAZING!!!! The chicken tenders were obviously hand breaded and cooked to order. I...More

We see the TV advertisements for Pollards Chicken all the time and decided to try it out. We are local but do not live close to any Pollards Chicken locations, so it was a bit of a drive. We ordered 16 pieces of dark meat...More

Good chicken, fair corn pudding, canned "greens" (yuk!). I got a special $5.79 plate which included a wing and a breast of delightfully, delicately coated fried chicken. De-double-licious! Corn pudding was okay, and homemade, but not as good as my old family recipe! When I...More
