We were in town for a wedding and checked out this place for lunch. Enjoyed the 1/4 white - fairly mild. The potato salad and cole slaw were good sides. Would return!

Great selection of sides with some very tasty chicken. The prices are a little high for the portions you get, but it’s consistently tasty.

If you just need a chicken fix this is the place to go. a good selection of different flavors, including Chicken and Waffles. Go here if you need a Fried Chicken fix. Very moist, very tender!

The chicken was so dry I could hardly get it down. Sides were ok. Atmosphere too chaotic and noisy. I won't go back

Heard a lot about this place so we decided to try it. Chicken tenders were stingy and dry. Fries nearly warm. Coleslaw overly sugary. One was enough.
