“Amazing Fried Chicken”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

This place has been around for as long as I can remember, and it's family run apparently. If you like fried chicken this is the best in town! It's all to go, and you have to wait 10 min to get the food, but worth it.

“Great fried chicken”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Consistantly good fried chicken - usually large and moist/tender pieces, but not always so.

Good serving of fries with your order and try the fritters - honey water dipped and not something common in Alberta.

This is the original location - they have started to franchise out into other places in Calgary.

“Feel Good Chicken”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

This take out establishment serves some of the area's finest comfort food. Not to much on the outside of the place but the chicken is good!. Too bad they were closed for renovations last time I was through the area. Make sure you try the fritters for a tasty treat!

“Classic Fried Chicken and Aggressive Panhandlers in the Parking Lot (Several Times)”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

Hello, dear Tripadvisor Friends!

Food is always consistent (classic fried chicken- we get the Hungryman dinners). They need security in their parking lot, as we have had to brace ourselves to ignore/deal with aggressive panhandlers. This has happened several times. We let the staff know this last time, and they said they'd deal with it.

We don't need people shouting at us for money or getting in our space for the privilage of getting a chicken dinner.

Happy and safe travels, dear Tripadvisor Friends!
