This is located in Central Market, a fresh produce/food market open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. I LOVE the chicken here - make sure you know your cuts, though, I tend to get thighs and breasts mixed up (lots of coating makes it easy to confuse them). The only thing I miss with this place is their selection of sides is... More

Be prepared for a line as Bair's is known for its tasty fried chicken. It's better than the the rest and they are adding other options like grilled and also tacos!

you can't go wrong if you get Bair's chicken when visiting central market. The favor of the chicken is constant & tasty. The fries add to the chicken. Over all this is one of the best places in the market house to eat if you are in the mood for chicken. I did not rate this as 1 of the... More

Ive lived in york for a few years and finally got a chance to try out this local gem. Enough food for two for only $7. Tasty, real white meat chicken and the service was great!

I arrived at the market a little late, so the only vendor still open was Bair's Fried Chicken Central. I got one chicken breast and a lot of tasty fries for five dollars. The chicken is flavorful, and the fries tasty too.

There is nothing bad about this place. I have no idea why anyone would give it only one star. You of course have to like fried foods. But they have really delicious fried foods. It has always been a local favorite for market goers. When I was in school (city school kid) everyone went here first no matter how old... More
