I have been going to AQ Chicken House for decades, and I have always enjoyed it. However, it doesn't seem to be as good as consistently as it used to be. The food is still good, but maybe half the time the fries or chicken are too greasy, the rolls are hard, or the service is lacking. That said, it's... More

AQ is a well known spot for the locals. Also, President Clinton & President Bush have made a stop in. Originally, there had been chicken houses behind this restaurant back in the 1950's -- they have lemon pepper chicken that I prefer, they also have good catfish! The carpet is really "dated" and needs to be freshened up. Good place... More

This is the best fried chicken I've tasted in Arkansas. The breading is crispy but still fairly light. The barbecue chicken, chicken fried steak, and pan fried were all delicious. The waitress gave excellent service--she was friendly and attentive without being too attentive. I wan't impressed with the fried peaches. The peaches weren't cooked and the breading was fairly flavorless.... More

Been awhile since I'd been to AQ, happy to report as good as ever. Food is fresh and tasty. Service was excellent. Tried the chicken tenders over the coals on a client's recommendation, wow, it was great! Highly recommend giving it a try.

Met and surpassed the reviews. We were not super hungry so we shared a combo dinner, and had more than enough food for two. Will come back if in area again.

We had an appetizer sized chicken livers and each had bowl of chicken and dumplings. My friend had a salad too, but he didn't touch it. The meal was outstanding. We ate until we were about to bust. We would recommend this place to everyone and we will be back.

My family has been coming to AQ Chicken House for decades. It definitely lived up to Expectations and Reputation. Servers were vaguely disinterested but delivered food quickly and accurately. Food itself was sublime bordering on unbelievable. Sides were good but not great. Dinner rolls were perfect. Will definitely repeat if I'm ever within 50 miles.

Have been here many times over the years!! Chicken was 😊 not as good as I recalled from earlier trips. The mashed potatoes and gravy were fabulous.

Stopped here as it was supposed to be a local favorite. Service was very bad. Hard time getting waited on. Got the sampler. The fried chicken was not crispy. The barbeque fried chicken was a mess. The charcoaled fried chicken was unique and had an unusual flavor but there are a lot of other places where the food tastes better.
