Our grandson goes to UT Chatt and this place is within walking distance from his dorm so we meet him there when we are in town. I think him and his friends could keep this place in business. Service leaves a little to be desired but it's not terrible. My wife and usually split the chicken finger plate. Plenty for... More

Food was delicious and reasonably priced. I had the chicken tender plate with the Champy's sauce and it was very good.

I would definitely go again and recommend this... More

Would have been better chopped. The slaw was interesting. I think its got horse radish in it. There's something a little different about it. I didn't like the plain piece of bread... More

Killer fried chicken and amazing sides. Good service albeit a touch pricey. It's usually crowded because of the quality but chicken just like Grandmaw used to make.

On a business visit to Chattanooga, when asking where to find the best regional chow, Champys was named by all the locals. Also unanimous was the dish of choice: their fried chicken. I was not to be disappointed. I recognized the restaurant as I walked up the street. This rustic shack, homey and welcoming as you might find along a... More

Best fried chicken I've ever put in my mouth! WOW!! Don't let the look of the place from the outside deter you. VERY cool inside! Our waitress was very friendly & attentive to our service. We will definitely eat there every time we are in the area Loved it!

When we first heard of this "Fried Chicken Restaurant" the last thing expected was Tamales .. what an awesome experience and yes we will definitely go back - in town for a Softball tournament and let me say the atmosphere and food at Champy's came about as close as anything to make us late getting back to the ball field......

Food always comes out fresh and piping hot. Fried chicken is some of, if not the best around. Fun atmosphere tops off a great experience every time.
