We were traveling home from Disney World and stopped to go to Subway and get gas. We saw this little place that said Southern Fried Chicken and decided to try it. We were so glad we did.

Good food and reasonable price. Very busy for a little hole in the wall place. A true mom and pop kind of place.

We look forward to driving down I-95 just to eat here. Best fried chicken and fried chicken livers anywhere. Take a good look at their menu once inside. You'll be astounded at the variety of seafood, Cajun fare and just plain down home goodness. We live 2.5 hours from there in upstate SC and would drive there just to eat.... More

Just a little shack of a place but pretty good BBQ. Outdoor seating mostly. With a dearth of good restaurants in Hardeeville this place had good down home cook'n.

Seriously, died and gone to heaven kind of chicken. Jambalaya rice was great too. I might not be anybody's fried chicken connoisseur but I will say this is just off the chain kind of delicious.
