    They have a large new dine-in area that is almost empty during weekdays. The lunch special is a great deal. I usually get the 1/4 dark meat.

    They just expanded and have a sweet to stay area with a beautiful wine bar with bio dynamic organic wines. So exited! 🙃

    Fried chicken battered in corn meal is so good with some hot sauce and ranch. They finally have more space to dine in.

    Try to get here around 11:30 to get the juiciest meat from the rotisserie. I like a side of gravy to dip the chicken into, because I believe in excess in all things.

    Very hole in the wall. While the outside isn't very inviting, the employees here are so friendly. The food is awesome. Get the spicy mayo with everything!

    The chicken is fantastic, but don't forget the sides: the mac 'n cheese is so rich, and the kale is sauteed in buttery garlic. Comfort food that hits the spot, every time.

    I have NEVER had a bad meal here. The kale is AHMAZING. All the sides are excellent. You'll love this place! You can be as healthy or as unhealthy as you want to be.

    Mac n cheese is awesome! Can't wait to try the other sides. The fried chicken and rotisserie are both really good. Can't decide.

    Some of the best fried chicken in NYC. The Mac & Cheese was a little disappointing. Be sure to pick up some extra cornbread.

    Of course the fried chicken is amazing, but don't forget everything else! The roasted BBQ chicken wrap is my favorite.

    Hands down the rotisserie chicken over the fried chicken. And skip the mac & cheese. The other sides are way more interesting!

    18+ bucks for 3 pieces of chicken, root beer and tiny Mac and cheese. You'll be better off at Popeyes, and oh! Popeyes taste better too!

    Fried chicken was great. Same with the chicken sandwiches. Mac and cheese was a little salty though.

    Skip this place if you want fried chicken and mac & cheese. There are real southern/soul food restaurants in Manhattan. This was like a Boston Market. 👎
