    Just get the chicken dark, the cheesy mash potatoes thing and a boylan's fountain beverage. No need for any of the other extras.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Get Mama El's style. Classic isn't worth a dime. The biscuits r amazing.

    Great chicken. Good corn salad. The decor made me feel like Biff was going to walk in and punch me.

    Holy moly! Opening day was crazy! Line out the door. Wait was ~ 40 min. Cool concept and desserts get a 10+. Buttermilk bourbon pie; say no more. My chicken was good but got cold waiting to pay.
