The best thing on the menu consistently are the Butterfly Fried Shrimp. The seven piece with two sides is steeply priced but worth the money. This redone sixties local is a Leesburg Classic. Fries are a good side.

There are 2 national brand chicken places one right next door and the other across the street. Do yourself a favor and go to Maryland Fried Chicken if you want down home Southern style... More

Be warned they are a definite cash only place, no debit cards or anything other than cash. They have an ATM that charges huge fees. The chicken was dripping grease and salty while the fries were not crispy at all.

The chicken and sweet tea were great. The place looks and smells like nothing has been done to the interior since it opened, guessing in the 70s. The place is kinda gross but the chicken is great. We are moving to the area and we will be regulars. Just wish the would update the place. Also they were playing bad... More

Saturday afternoon....After standing in line and ordering, it wasn't until I took out my credit card that the cashier tells me CASH ONLY. No sign anywhere stating this . What if we didn't bring enough cash? I would think that enough people have been burned by this that they would have a sign ? We certainly didn't care for the... More

I lived in south florida for many years and that where I first tasted Maryland Fried Chicken. Since I moved to Leesburg, Florida, you can imagine my joy when I found this place I loved, just down the road apiece. There chicken is broasted, I think that it is cooked in a pressure cooker and that means loads of juice... More

Their fried chicken is delicious and moist. The coating they use is almost better than the chicken itself! Eat in or take out - but don't Miss Out!

There aren't many places that I've ever been for fried chicken that are in this league! Food is freshly cooked, portions are generous and are served piping hot.

This place serves one of the best fried chicken I've ever tried. The chicken itself is not greasy and the covering doesn't taste bad. Really worth the try.
