Had to try from all the good reviews. The chicken was good and moist. I enjoyed the atmosphere, it was a little of everything just thrown together. The beans were good and the slaw was excellent. The staff was friendly and pleasant. One of those places you have to try at least once.

Got there at dinner time after some trouble parking. We were seated inside at the last available table. We got some water and I asked the waitress about the wait time for a chicken dinner and she said 20 minutes. So, I ordered an appetizer to tide us over. To tide me over, I guess, because my wife wasn't going... More

Stopped in for a late Sunday lunch. Cute atmosphere, kitschy fun place. Seated at a folding table with warped chair. Wasnt too happy about that but ok. Had chicken, slaw & potato salad. Chicken was delicious! Sides were just ok. Tea was good & server did a good job keeping drinks refilled. All in all, if I were in the... More

The place has, hands down, the best fried chicken around. Great place too hang out for a beer and socialize as well. It does fill up quick, especially for larger groups, so better be ready to wait on a table. The side are great too, and the jalapeño appetizer is really good. A must stop in Chattanooga.

Great fried chicken. Really worth a visit if you are in town. The spice rub on the sausage appetizer was outstanding. The Mississippi mud pie was great as well.

I stopped in for a quick lunch and the service was excellent. I started with the tamales because I had heard great things. They were good, but a little bland for my tastes. I have to say the coleslaw they came with paired very well. The baked beans that came later were okay, but as you would expect, the fried... More

Our first Champy's experience was Lee Hwy/Shallowford Rd location. We had the chicken platter and must claim it to be some of the best fried chicken that I've had. Sides were excellent too. The outside dining area is great. Lots of TVs for viewing pleasure; football season should be a blast. My only concern was the outside bar area. It... More

Excellent chicken. My boyfriend had the crawdad's and said they were really good too, but after tasting my chicken he got an order of chicken to go for himself!

We took the advice here on Trip Advisor and tried Champy's Parking is a challenge. There is a small lot with not many spots to park. There is a choice of inside or outside seating. We opted for inside. We were surprised at the "bar" atmosphere (Dimly lit, large bar, not many tables, waitresses in short shorts ...) We chose... More
