I have been going to Beach Road Chicken Dinners since the late 1960's. As a college student it was the best place to stuff in the protein at a very reasonable price. Sure we made fun of the excellent waitress staff with their genuine bee hive hair styles and they gave it right back to us. The food was fantastic.... More

We have been to Beach Rd seversl times since discovering it 2 years ago. Food is always fresh & always good. Servers are very friendly & check on you constantly. I've never had a bad experience here whether I've gone for lunch or dinner. This continues to be the best (like homemade) fried chicken we have had.

This place was opened in 1939 in this location. It has been serving fried eats ever since. The coleslaw and cream peas are a must. Best fried chicken I have ever tasted. A must try to say that you have been here. Local secret.

This place has been around for years. The building is nothing fancy inside or out but you can't go wrong with the food. You order the meat each person wants and get creamed peas, mashed potatoes, gravy, french fries, buscuits & slaw. Did I mention that all the sides are all you can eat. The chicken is great. We came... More

This is one of the best fried chicken places in Jacksonville. I always get the chicken strip dinner. It's 5 huge pieces of chicken and all the side dishes you can eat. Great family style eating and you never go away hungry.

This restaurant was recommended by friends and it was great. We shared the family dinner and everything was delicious. My wife particularly loved the cream peas.

Disappointed. First service - My server was disorganized seemed lost. Other servers appeared have it all together. Food - Just OK. The chicken was fried well and not dry but had no seasoning at all. As for the sides the were OK arrived at table just warm. The biscuits were good but just warm too. Probably will not go back.
