    The Coop in dark meat. Ask for half mashed potato and half mac and cheese to get the best of both worlds.

    The food here is too good to be true. Try their chicken tenders, Mac and cheese, banana pie, and fry mashed potatoes. It has real fries in it! How awesome is that!?! The entire staff is sweet

    Pie shake! Pie crust inside a shake. So delicious and yet disgusting at the same time. I had the double cherry one and it was very good. The fried chickens were also not bad.

    Best fried chicken in the city me thinks. The bums are also nice and hassle you from the warmth of your chair. No need to battle the cold for panhandlers.

    Big fan of the mash potato side. Decent chicken that will leave you satisfied, but slightly below Blue Ribbon for reference.

    The chicken is always really juicy and flavorful. I like the classic style better than Mama El's. Best "fast food" chicken joint I've been to, and they're consistent. Decent service.

    Make sure to get a milkshake. They're made with Blue Bell Ice cream and are thick and delicious. Chicken is well-seasoned, but pricy.

    The chickwich is vastly superior to most fast-food fried chicken sandwiches, because the chicken was perfectly fried- crispy on the outside, not too thick, and still moist in the interior. Read more

    3 Georgians here agree--this classic TX style fried chicken is NOT like true southern fried chicken. The batter has a lot of sugar in it...sugar that would be put to better use in the ice-tea!
