“Great place to grab tasty chicken!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Aye in the restaurant and have also grabbed takeout from here as well. Chicken is always hot and tasty way better than any of the big franchises! Last time we ate there we had a few wing pieces that still had several feathers on them which my sister found horrifying but I didn't think was a big deal. All in all if you want a quick hot meal it's worth a stop. If your looking for fancy or healthy take a pass

“Fresh and juicy fried chicken.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Chicken is cooked to order so nothing is dried out. Very friendly people. The price is very reasonable.

“Came back for more... and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

The food is amazing! So much flavor! Sherry was such a sweetheart too. I thought the closure of the national parks would sour my trip, but she gave me a few suggestions that were right up my alley. And beqare the spicy sauce, it seems tame at first, but it sneaks up on you and gets quite hot.

“Get the Chikin!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

The Chikin beats the pants of the franchises! Just remember, when you order, you gets true sized pieces, not like the chain restaurant. We enjoyed it all, the hush puppies, pickles, Chikin, brisket, all of it. When we ordered the Chikin, the lady said it would be 15 minutes, and did we mind. Of course not! I will always wait for fresh cooked food, but I appreciate being informed. The decor could use some refreshers, but the food was great.
