We are not fried chicken eaters but had read that this place had the best so if you're gonna eat fried chicken, why not here, Right? Wrong- Well it's a dingy place with dirty carpeting. First round of cornbread was horrible and next batch was a tad better but not what I'd call good. Fried chicken was moist on inside and crunchy on outside. Black eyed peas were decent and beets were as well but I was convinced they were canned so I asked the waitress and she confirmed. The fried green tomatoes were not even edible. Service was good and it's cheap

Wanted a down home fried chicken dinner. Disappointed and left hungry . Cornbread could be a hammer and the chicken was cool inside , so not fried to order. A definite skip!

Folks, if you enjoy down home cooking; greens, limas, catfish, pork chops, fried chicken, homemade pie, and the like, and you like your portions generous, then everyday at Martin's feels like being at mama's house for Thanksgiving. Everything (including the pies) is made fresh daily on site. Servers are friendly and efficient. An extremely affordable and family friendly.

Martin's is a classic destination for traditional Southern cooking in Montgomery. When your waitress brings a basket of cornbread that's this delicious, you know you're in for a treat.

Sometimes the wait for your food can be a little long when they're crowded, but it's well worth it. They're crowded because the food is so excellent!

I also like Martin's because of the diverse clientele. It's an enjoyable, down-home dining experience that's welcoming to everybody. I've eaten there many times, and will be back every chance I get when in Montgomery.

Only downside is they're closed on Saturdays. But everybody deserves a day off once in a while!

What a treat. The fried chicken was fresh, moist and perfectly fried. With two large pieces of chicken and three generous sides PLUS cornbread or biscuits you won't leave hungry. It was the perfect southern meal!
