“After party drunk food - ONLY!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Ok - Man Vs. Food made this already popular place famous. And while it has character, and low prices, the food is terrible! I imagine this is the go to place on a Fri/Sat after party stop. But if sober, you will actually notice that the place is filthy, and the food (especially in the food warmers) is GROSS! It has been siting there for hours! Friends took us there, and we had the chicken cheddar biscuit. Interesting, but nothing special. You can make it at home yourself in your clean kitchen and avoid any after the fact IBS symptoms! Watch the rerun on tv and skip this place!

“Overrated”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Well I came because I seen it on Man vs Food and was very excited that I was in the area well we went to the one by the dorms I don't know if it would have made a difference. I really don't understand how your in the south and I can't find a place that makes fresh collards and real baked Mac and cheese I'm lost about that the chicken wasn't all that I really don't know what's all the rave is the first thing I'm gonna do is continue to search for some true southern food this place good be way better. There gonna close the Franklin Ave location to demolish the shopping center so they'll move but the one on 15/501 will still be open.

“Best chicken I have had in a while”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Placed a large order for fried chicken from the Franklin Street location for a group event and very pleased. The chicken was cooked appropriately, not overcooked, but crispy and tender. The accompanying biscuits were huge and were split into smaller portions. Guests at the event commented how good the chicken was.

While the store has a website it does not seem to have a phone! I had to stop by the store to place my order, but the staff on site were every helpful. The store advertises it is open 24 hrs per day, 365 days per year, so guess I can return when I feel the need for more delicious fried chicken or the many side dishes also available for purchase.

“Chicken and Cheddar Biscuit!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Love the way that they tear off the filet of a chicken breast and put it inside of a large biscuit with a slab of cheddar cheese! What a treat! They offer other menu items too, but didn't try them. Got a chuckle out of the sign that says, bag of bones, $3.00. They sell the bones from all the chicken biscuits!

“Requirement for a Carolina student”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

You cannot call yourself a real student of Carolina until you've stopped by here with almost no money and after a long night of enjoyment. Its quality is avg. But it is a legend. For decades it has provided filling food to poor, tired, drunk, or any other student that needed something that they could not pull off at Top of the Hill. You going out tonight? When you're hungry on the way home for something, anything, and what is in your wallet is a joke, Time Out doesn't laugh. It delivers.
