People kept telling me about this chicken so I drove the 20 minutes to try some. It was awesome! We got a 15 piece bucket and the word on the street was correct. If you like it hot when you first get the chicken your mind will be blown later when you eat it cold. Yes it's even better cold!... More

Maryland has some of the best fried chicken you can buy. They have a small area to dine in and also have take out. Their fried shrimp as well as chicken livers are also favorites.

We had lunch at Maryland Fried Chicken and the food was great! The chicken is fried in peanut oil so a slightly different flavor but very good and hot! Dont forget to bring cash as they do not accept credit cards!

Best southern style fried chicken ever. The stuff that'll make you get addicted to eat. They use peanut oil to fry their chicken as well, which is a plus.

The best dang Fried Chicken you'll ever bite into cooked crisp in peanut oil best flavor. Small inside seating in restaurant for a Tens. Or you can take out. Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

This has to be by far the best cooked chicken for a fast food restaurant I have been to. Service is always first class and very friendly.

Wanted some delicious fried chicken and was in plant city and decided to try this place. The chicken was delicious and worth the stop. It is a take out restaurant which was good for dinner at home.

Simply put, fabulous! Awesome fried chicken & friendly service! The only thing I've ever eaten there is the chicken. Although I'd like to try other things, I always end up ordering the chicken. It's that good.

I had a business lunch there. Chicken was fresh and hot and delivered quick. 2 PC and 2 sides under $10. They fry in peanut oil and it was fresh and not greasy. The batter was more of a tempura batter which is different than most places, but good.

Best fried chicken anywhere, very pleasant staff. Family owned since 1969, small and simple dining area. Order from the counter or do take out from the outside window also. Closed on Sunday's. Always clean. Only down side, cash only. Wish they take debit cards, I always visit the atm before I go.
