    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

    This is the best chicken I've had in NYC (Mama El's version)! Mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, & french fries are all standard. The chicken and biscuits are the real stars. Wish they served some gravy!

    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.

    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!
