    The fried chicken is perfectly cooked and has some of the best breading I've ever had. Everything was delicious

    The skinless oats crust has really good texture and crunch. They could have made the chicken itself and the crust more flavorful.

    The classic fried chicken is great. The french fries in the mashed potatoes are a fun idea. The kale in the coleslaw is not.

    We’re all about the crunchy cracker breading. Order the thigh and drumstick deluxe with a buttermilk biscuit and a side of cheesy fried mashed potatoes. Read more

    The jerks here do NOT have cheese grits or any kind of grits. The dopey girl at the counter had no idea of what grits are SO I LEFT! That's ridiculous in a Southern fried chicken restaurant!

    I usually get the Texas tenders, which are juicy, sizeable & pair perfectly with their honey mustard. Get the cheesy fried mashed potatoes as a side. They have a Boylan's soda fountain too.

    When it opened: decent. Now: absolutely incredible. The Southwestern Salad with fried chicken = 🙌. Cheesy mashed potatoes have some magic in them.

    Southern fried chicken done right! I prefer their original with skin. It's nice and crispy yet juicy. Biscuits are must. Their pies are just as good as their chicken if not better.

    The chicken is awesome! Wasn't expecting it to be so flavorful and moist. I went for the Classic fried I'm a skin fan. Definitely will return. Staff can be a bit more inviting to first timers however

    Absolutely the best fried chicken (Mama Els) and grilled chicken sandwiches in NYC. The homemade pie cups are awesome too. And don't miss the Boylan fountain soda. Free refills!

    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.

    Get a cup for the soda fountain and combine the black cherry with cream soda. It's the best.

    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.

    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!
