Great fried chicken and ample portions of it and the sides at a reasonable price. One of the best places to go for chicken. They offer free soft ice cream with your meal.

Try the gravy, the corn nuggets, and the rolls. I like the chicken tenders and the people are better than average for a fas food joint. Good atmosphere and clean all around. Worthy of a visit.
