    Buy a family pack and eat at the Z-Cafe. It takes less time and is far less expensive than the upstairs but the same great food. Get dessert from the bakery and be sure to try a Napoleon.

    I'm still full from the amazing chicken dinner, and I ate it two days ago. ;) Great food, great staff. Plenty of seating, so don't let a line deter you.

    This place is famous for its fried chicken but their chicken pâté coleslaw is awesome too. Check our bakery for some delicious sugar free creations!

    Eat upstairs for lunch. prices about the same but you get a nicer atmosphere. The quesadilla was really good. The wings were horrible. If you want chicken just get the chicken dinner.

    This is the best chicken in the area. Key word area. Definitely not like the South but good. Nice flaky crispy batter on the chicken. Can't go wrong with the all you can eat deal.

    A must stop, if you find yourself in Frankenmuth. We ate downstairs this time, and it was delicious. Michigan Cherry Salad - DELICIOUS

    The chicken dinner is mediocre to okay. But the ambiance and oddity of the place make up for it. All you can eat chicken. It's a time capsule of late 80s early 90s culture.

    The chicken is great, but they also have great German food.Schnitzel, spaetzel, bratwurst, saurkraut and more....

    The bakery is the best part. We always buy extra for family and friends. The coffe cake freeze great, cut into serving sizes and freeze for a quick taste of Frankenmuth.

    Order half portion when possible. Servings are too large. A family of five can split one hot chicken sandwich and be satisfied.

    Normally, the service is not bad, but tonight, our server took way to long and it took us 2 hours due to this bad service. I will be back, but tonight was just super bad. Not up to normal standards.

    The food is terrible. The chicken is nothing but overlooked grease, the mashed potatoes are instant, the stuffing is a tasteless mushy mess, the squash doesn't taste like squash. Eat somewhere else.

    Skip it and go to KFC. Chicken dinner rip off-- try to load you up on cheap "apps" while you wait for your subpar chix and canned corn. Hasn't been renovated since 70s and tobacco stains thick as mud
