Certainly lives up to all the hype! Advertising mostly by "word of mouth". Nothing fancy in terms of atmosphere, but delivers tons of just good 'ole homecookin'! Rarely do I drive by and see less than a full parking lot!!!

The Chicken House Cafe resembles something that Norman Rockwell would paint--"mom and pop" cafe in a small town serving up great home cooked style meals with great service. Another feature is that the food is fresh with the chicken hand battered after being ordered. If...More

A family owned restaurant with great tasting fried chicken. The homemade onion rings are delicious! They have very reasonable prices and friendly staff. The restaurant has recently been updated and looks nice, it's in a small town and worth the drive.

Chicken was very good, salad was minimal-chopped iceberg lettuce with carrot shavings. Service was terrible. If they don't know you they don't care. Very slow in taking order-not busy, just gabbing with kitchen staff. 2 tables ( only 4 people in the restaurant) had to...More
