    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    Chicken fingers for life. Wedge salad is good. Potato salad is great. And the sauces are all money.

    The mac and cheese is amazing. If you're planning on picking up lunch here, call in your order ahead, the wait for your food can sometimes be a while.

    Can't go wrong with fried or rotisserie, but the chicken fingers really are above and beyond.

    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!

    When in-season, they have the BEST Brussels sprouts I have ever tasted. Regardless, my favorite TO-GO spot in the city.

    Not Mac n cheese - more like Mac n butter. #meltinyourmouth Paula Deen would be so proud. (SO delicious).

    Delicious organic chicken, roasted or fried. Try the saute kale for a healthy counter-balance.

    The mac & cheese was more like soup. Definitely a negative.

    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. 👎
