Chicken is moist and you can literally order your food and be out the door in 2-3 minutes. They don't mess around.

Been there many times over the years, and the flavor never disappoints. This is MY idea of fried chicken and tenders. Perfectly seasoned and golden, large portions, killer fries, and that oh-so-good monster-sized dinner roll. Fast takeout. Good value. Not what you'd expect from this old bldg in Pomona.

Based on the rating here, we went to get dinner. First, the area isn't the best. Second, the business exterior looks old and in need of a makeover. Third, the inside has no place to sit down to eat in, so you can only get your food to go. Pretty expensive menu. Not real impressed with the interior. We got... More

Not what I would expect 1 chicken is good cost $27.52 Side order that comes with your order sucks not enough to feed the rest of your family unless you give them one tbsp each the bread or dinner rolls is enough but the potato salad, macaroni salad, mashed potatoes and gravy and Cole slaw was not worth it!! Nice... More

The muffins, preloaded with butter have to be eaten before you get home. You will always take it home because there is nowhere to sit or eat inside. Order it fast, pay cash, wait briefly, and they hand you a hot bag filled with fried chicken. All the sides are great, try all the sauces too.

This place has been around forever, as the giant, 50's signage including a huge rooster statue testifies to. People come here from all over the Pomona Valley, and the aroma of fried chicken can dominates the senses for a block or two in every direction. I think they've been serving the exact same thing for…well since they opened way back... More
