I ordered the jumbo tenders (mild), mac n cheese, & potato salad. Delicious! Be prepared to wait in a very long line but this is a normal thing because this place is so popular.

Yes inside, and it all depends on what time you get there. Although I went there in August and sat outside and it was not too bad.
