Fresh, never frozen chickens. Full of flavor, cooked to perfection. Always love going there! Fries are good & fresh too. Dine in or Take-out. Delicious!

I like this place but my husband loves it. We visit Missoula once a year while visiting family. My. husband says they have the best fried chicken. I tried a grilled chicken sandwich this time and it was very good.
