    Mac and cheese was pretty good. Surprisingly the salad was amazing too.

    Got the chicken sandwich with fries and a beer for $20 all in, which is pretty good by NYC standards. Most importantly, I was full but would have gladly had another sandwich - it was pretty damn good!

    You have to get the mac and cheese. Bite down on everything here though. Literally each bite was better than the one before.

    Best fried chicken in NYC by far, possibly the best in the country north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Young guys running the place are efficient & friendly. An absolute must-visit Alphabet City staple.

    Get the platter with fried chicken, Mac and cheese, and biscuit and you won't regret it! Very reasonably priced for moist, delicious Southern food. Will definitely be returning.

    Not sure what the hype is about. Chicken is average at best, can't imagine why someone would go here instead of Pies n Thighs

    The buffalo chicken sandwich should run for president! Amazing! Homemade ranch for the ranch lovers, not your normal frozen fries they're nice and crispy. Mac & cheese is authentic & really good!

    As usual, one of the best, if not the best, fried chicken sandwiches anywhere. Add pimento cheese and all is right with the world. The banana pudding and pecan bread pudding was great too.
