Most people love fried chicken. And most people agree as to what good ol' homestyle fried chicken should taste like. However, AQ offers what they call their "over-the-coals" style of chicken. I have NEVER tasted any thing quite like it. They use lemon pepper on...More

Tastes even better than it looks. Well worth going out your way to visit. If you find yourself in NW Arkansas, you need to go here.

I Had the Hawaiian chicken over rice with green beans. The chicken was so moist I cut it with just my fork. Very good.

Usually a great place to eat today we were served stale rolls and barely warm food. We will not be returning in the future.

This is chicken from way back - before Interstates were even an idea. Great atmosphere, superb chicken and very friendly service - even thought the place is packed. Whatever wait is required is worth the experience.

I don’t care what day or what you order, AQ is a treat! And that ranch-whoa now! I can’t believe they closed the one in Fayetteville, now we have to drive much further for our chicken fix 😜

I have not been here in a really long time. While in the area with family I thought it was a must to revisit. The original is still great chicken. The deserts are also huge and delicious.
