If you're looking for fried chicken that's fresh, light and plentiful then Stanley's is the place for you. Add friendly staff and a spacious and comfortable dining room and you can see why this family friendly restaurant is so popular.

We went there. The food is homestyle cooking; meatloaf, chicken fried steak...the Mac n cheese is the best I've ever had. The drinks are reasonably priced. This immediately became a favorite. A REAL gem!!!
