When you order a 4 piece meal, I think that it's reasonable to expect one each of leg, thigh, wing and breast. What I got was a leg, 2 thighs, and a wing. The mashed potatoes were standard reconstituted powder--like every other chicken joint, even...More

Good chicken served hot and fresh. I prefer a little more seasoning on my chicken, but this was tasty. Cole slaw was good. Mashed potatoes just average, the chicken is the star of the show here. Definitely worth a visit.

We tried this place, and we fell in love their tender and juicy fried chicken. The sides we had were very good, too. The chicken tasted so fresh. We highly recommend this place.

I learned there is a real advantage to calling ahead to place your order. The seating area in general is dated and not super-comfortable, but if you place your order in advance, it's always ready when you arrive. The food is good with generous portions....More
