    Delicious chicken with some free entertainment with singing coming from the kitchen! :) 20 piece family chicken deal with sides easily fed 7 people plus leftovers!

    Exactly as advertised - Hot, Spicy, & juicy fried chicken. The fried chicken plates come with coleslaw & beans, but can swap for other sides

    Make sure you have plenty of sweet tea in your glass when the food comes - the seasoning in the chicken makes you thirsty!
