    Head downstairs for quiet, peaceful meal time ✌. You could probably even study here.

    The fries and the biscuits. But other than that is okay but overpriced.

    The bathrooms are downstairs. And there is a ton of seating downstairs as well.

    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.

    Tommy Chen · August 25, 2015
  • Precious C.

    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 sides are pretty good, and of course the chicken is great.

    Wow! The fried chicken breast was amazing. Probably the best I've ever eaten and I've eaten a lot! Fresh, vintage, down home Cookin' at its best! I bought breast and wing Coop Meal with the Creme Soda

    Chicken tenders (get a side of honey) and cheese fried mashed potatoes is what you should get. No questions.

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

    Bryant Balatbat · February 24, 2015
  • Zaphiria Z.

    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

    Zaphiria Zallas · February 23, 2015
  • Winson W.

    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.

    Winson Wong · February 10, 2015

    Not so great...

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

    j dlv · January 12, 2015
  • Chris B.

    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.

    Chris Buckley · January 10, 2015

    Really great salads, contrary to what you might think

    Mike Hopkins · December 26, 2014

    Go here. Eat everything. Have no regrets.
