I have enjoyed Ezell's chicken since moving here in 1981. For reasons I won't bother going in to Ezell is no longer envolved with the business. The last two times I have picked up chciken there left me wishing I had gone to that Southern fried chicken place. Ezell has since opened a couple of outlets called Heaven Sent Fried... More

Maybe used to be a famous fried chicken place, but now it was not that good, the white meat was on the dry side. The fry Okra was completely oily and salty.

Serving the best fried chicken from a family recipe for more than 20 years at 11 locations in the Seattle area. Tasty crunchy moist white meat, outstanding biscuits, and excellent sides make the trip more than worthwhile.

Great local place with the best chicken strips & rolls. We eat here at least twice a month. They are most famous for being Opera's Favorite chicken. We like the spicy batter. Yum!

All Ezell's and Heaven Sent fried chicken restaurants have the same menu, same prices & the same delicious chicken because they are franchised. My husband loves the chain. My favorite is the one downtown Renton on 3rd street. He likes the chicken. I love the rolls which are sweet, light and yummy! I also love the fried gizzards. The chicken... More

I bought some chicken at a new location in Renton/Fairwood. I was very disappointed. The chicken was overcooked, and completely flavorless. The biscuits were about on par with the brown and serve ones that you buy in the grocery store.

Tender, crispy, not greasy, hot and fresh. What more can you say? Their rolls are fresh, puffy pillows of doughy goodness.
