    This is great chicken in a wet batter. It's spicy and salty, just how fried chicken should be. The mac 'n' cheese, butter beans and rice, and fried okra with cornbread are perfect, too. Read more

    OMG!! They must mop the floor with grease! In the absence of nasty throw rugs, You can't get traction to stand/sit. Restroom floors were the same. The staff was nice enough, but the place is nasty!

    The best fried chicken I've had. Everything fried chicken should be: crispy, exploding with juice and max flavor! They didn't win a James Beard award in 2005 for nothing!

    I don't eat chicken, but order the tasty veg lima beans and red beans and fried okra.

    The fried chicken was amazing!!! The okra and rice and gravy were also very tasty. The string beans were lack lusting and taste like they may have been from a can.

    It's been six years between visits and they haven't lost their touch. The chicken is juicy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, and great with a side of okra. Worth the cross country trek.

    Overrated and overpriced. Want to know what it's like to have Long John Silver style beer batter on 2 pieces of fried chicken and then pay $12 for it? Yeah me neither.

    No mystery here. The chicken is what you should have. The catfish & shrimp isn't bad either.

    The world's best fried chicken. Also, butter beans and corn bread. Dooky Chase's chicken isn't even in the same universe

    Definetly glad we tried this place, but wouldn't come out of my to try again. Chicken was very good. The batter just wasn't to my liking...too greasy.

    Fried chicken and butter beans. They charge $3 to share and are literal about giving you ONE share plate.
