There's KFC, TFC, DFC, Chicken Cottage etc and ofcourse, Joe's Southern Table FC!! Went there on Saturday, after seeing a theatre matinee. Seems a popular venue, but then it's location is on the trek of the "let's have a night out in Covent Garden revellers". The chicken that was nicely cooked was decent and tasty, but there were a few... More

Booked a table for three people weeks ago, got put in the door way on an extremely wobbly table, barged into constantly with push chairs, people in an out the door, constantly accompanied by blasts of cold air each time it was opened. It was unbelievably dark in there too, no joking people around us were using torches on their... More

I came here Wednesday 15th before going for dinner for some pre cocktails. The place was very busy and a little chaotic. We sat at the bar and ordered just a small beer and a Coca Cola, I was so busy taking in the wonderful array of drinks they had on display and reading the menu that I didn't realise... More

Nice location and friendly staff. Restaurant was nicely decorated but drinks/cocktails on the pricey side. Frickles, jalapeno poppers, wings, and artichoke dip were delicious. Southern chicken was great but the hot one left more to be desired. The hotdog was good but the burger spoilt our experience. Would go back just for the starters and chicken.

It's the third time I have visited for dinner and it doesn't disappoint. Food it great, cocktails are fab, service is good and all within a nice relaxed atmosphere. If you fancy trying some southern food this is the place to go.

This is becoming our default place to go to for a nice bite to eat around Covent Garden. Always such lovely, polite and friendly staff. Fast service too. Shoutout to our last waiter (who has served us a few times before) Martin who was great fun. Nice cosy atmosphere and gorgeous interior decor.

Recommended to us by friend who visits London a lot. Booked this before going to Theatre, I would describe this a very good upmarket Nando's. Chicken was amazing, sauces were great, homemade Lemonade tasty. Great atmosphere inside All Chicken is Gluten Free if this required also. Casual dining, good service

After a family day out around London, we found this buzzing vibrant place in Covent Garden. Chicken heaven. The moment you walk in you are greeted with a friendly smile, the decor is amazing and the music to suit, a bit of northern soul. The service was very quick and the waitress was very helpful to explain what she thought... More

I actually went to Joe's twice in January, so you may wonder why i deemed it be average? Well, they were running a 50% off promotion so i gave it two tries. Now if you just want southern fried chicken this place is excellent. However, the other sauces they provide to cover their chicken aren't great, in fact quite sickly... More
