Truly excellent fried chicken. It has a unique crispy coating and is tender and juicy inside. A couple of pinches of black pepper and they would have perfect fried chicken lol! The sides are good and a pretty average atmosphere.

This is a simple eatery, unpretentious as they come, just tables and a counter where you order & pay from a limited breakfast / lunch list of options - and they bring it to your table. The food is good, prices are astoundingly low, and you can listen to the locals' chatting. BTW, they do allow smoking if that is... More

This is a little mom and pop shop. It has friendly service! The fried chicken is very good, especially when it is fresh. It does make a difference if it's been sitting a bit! The Cole slaw is yummy as well! This family owned business is a great stop in and get out!

This was the best fried chicken I have ever had (and I am not generally a fried chicken person). The seasoning in the breading was delicious and it was fried just right. Prices are more than reasonable. It is a local mom and pop place and may make you raise an eyebrow when you pull up. You order at the... More

The local guys all rave about this place. It's ok, nothing super and not bad. Just an average mom and pop place. The fish meal or fish sandwich is probably my favorites. It's worth stopping by if you are in town.

If I was just reviewing the chicken, I'd give 4/5 (maybe even 5/5). But, other aspects bring down the rating. The biggest drawback is that they allow smoking in the restaurant. That may be a plus for some people, but not me. I'm highly sensitive to cigarette smoke. My eyes were itchy before I even saw the smokers, but I... More

I just had lunch here and really enjoyed the fried chicken. Service was fast and friendly. I'm glad I skipped the nearby fast food and opted to have a late lunch here instead.
