I worked in hoover back in 2005 and i was introduced to this place. The guy that owns it is a good man... hes a little off beat at times... however its good food. I recommend the chicken basket. Its just that good.

All you can say is the best chicken fingers, fried to order. Fast service. Prices vary for same item based on Mike's(the owner) mood. Be nice to Mike and the price goes down. Don't go to chil fil a for chicken, go to Fred's.
