Don’t worry about the setting, any noise, the way the servers are dressed, decor or anything else. THIS is the Charlotte classic. Carry out. Waiting lines. You haven’t fully “moved” to Charlotte till you have been here.

I honestly wanted to love this restaurant because of all of the hype that it receives around Charlotte. I placed a large order (11 meals) with my coworkers and we all had a headache shortly after eating because the food was very salty.

Good chicken, but then again, it's only chicken. There is only so much that you can do with fried chicken to make it special. This was very good fried chicken, and considering it's reputation, not unreasonably priced. Closed Sundays.

I drove 15 miles out of the way to get the best chicken, and I was not disappointed. To get the best chicken and LIVERS there is only one place. When I give my order to the friendly person on the register, I MUST add an order of LIVERS. They are my treat for my drive home. I have learned... More

Their chicken was outstanding! Maybe the best I have ever enjoyed! Staff is friendly and engaging. We bought the all white meat dinners and the 4 piece wing meal along with desserts.

I don't see how this place gets so many high marks... There's really nothing special about the food. It's fried food at the end of the day, there's not much you can do to it to make it "great". I wasn't impressed, I honestly like Popeye's way better. I think this place gets a lot of hype because it was... More

My husband and I tried Price's Chicken Coop for the first time today, and we were impressed. The fried chicken and sweet tea were amazing. There is no dining area in the restaurant, and it can become super crowded waiting for your order. You also have to have cash to pay.

If you are looking for great fried chicken. This is a must do. It is a landmark in Charlotte for good reason. The food is outstanding.

Best Southern fried chicken I have ever ever eaten. Call your order in and come by to pick it up. This place has nowhere to eat in. Everyone who works here specialized in cooking, not serving. Of course chicken is the main offering, but they have other offerings, including fried fish, which is also excellent. Try the potato salad, too.... More

This is probably the best fried chicken I've ever had. The menu is short but still has many options. Not many places to sit inside, but it's very close to a few parks. The hush puppies are also delicious
