It is more or less a clean hole in the wall and if you are needing a place to sit, skip this place. If on the other hand you are craving fried chicken like you wished your grandma used to make, this is the place.

I love Skipper John's chicken but it is overpriced! Not crazy about the customer service either. Employees make you feel like you are putting them out instead of appreciating you. I am a regular customer so this is not a one time review!

Everything on their menu is good, especially their chicken wings and gizzard. I've been there at least 20 times and every time the food gets better and better!!

Good alternative to frying it yourself!! The chicken livers are good too! A little salty for some. Call ahead if you don't want to wait and don't forget your cash.
