The menu has a good selection and the food is always hot. This time around, the potato wedges were a little soggy, but everything else was decent. The chicken and breading are always cooked to the liking.

Pass through here twice a year, we like to try different places to eat, so we stopped here. The jumbo chicken strips were large, juicy, not greasy, and just plain tasty. The side dishes, well, they're ok, beans and rice is mostly rice, mashed potatoes were a little too 'thin' for me, my wife liked the cole slaw but was... More

The food options were good, standard chicken shack fare. The prices were better. The service was good, but a little slow.

I'm rating this one star. A family member wouldn't shut up how amaaaazing this chicken was. We were in the drive-thru for 30 minutes. No joke. The famous biscuits?? Sorry. Hard as a rock and stale. Long story short, 90% of us in the car had the chicken strips that evening. The next morning we were all extremely sick. Indigestion... More

We rarely eat fried chicken, so this was a new one for us. It was delicious...white meat, boneless, light topping and not too greasy.

I go for the chicken gizzards LOL. Food is a bit greasy so if you're a healthfood fanatic, keep it movin'! I don't know how they cook their gizzards but they are always so tender..unlike the ones I try to make st home that end up being chewy. They provide super fast service and my order has never been messed... More
