It would be difficult to find better chicken anywhere. I love other chicken restaurants but this is my first choice. Parking is limited as well as the seating but it is always worth the trip and whatever wait is necessary. I believe it is family run and everybody is extremely pleasant and helpful. Prices are very reasonable.

I will say the workers gett'er done! Quick, fast and in a hurry! It was a bit salty, was only able to eat 1 piece, I have hypertension and I didn't want to take any chances on my blood pressure going up! I don't think I will revisit just because of the saltiness.

LOVE the fried chicken! Disliked the fried fish. It was mostly coating (which was still good), but I didn't know fish was square! Odd. My husband likes the sides, but I don't.

People kept telling me about this chicken so I drove the 20 minutes to try some. It was awesome! We got a 15 piece bucket and the word on the street was correct. If you like it hot when you first get the chicken your mind will be blown later when you eat it cold. Yes it's even better cold!... More

Maryland has some of the best fried chicken you can buy. They have a small area to dine in and also have take out. Their fried shrimp as well as chicken livers are also favorites.

We had lunch at Maryland Fried Chicken and the food was great! The chicken is fried in peanut oil so a slightly different flavor but very good and hot! Dont forget to bring cash as they do not accept credit cards!

Best southern style fried chicken ever. The stuff that'll make you get addicted to eat. They use peanut oil to fry their chicken as well, which is a plus.

The best dang Fried Chicken you'll ever bite into cooked crisp in peanut oil best flavor. Small inside seating in restaurant for a Tens. Or you can take out. Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
