For a cheap fast food place, this place is amazing. The price of McDonalds and the qualify of a restaurant. The chicken tenders were huge, moist, and yummy. The shrimp on a bun was great as well. Best Value in Lafayette.

This place has been around for years and there is a reason. It is pretty run down but there food is pretty good. The tenders are huge and very tasty. The fried Liver is on point and the rice dressing is great as well. You will not find a better price for good tasty food in town. Check it out... More

Great fried chicken. Not the best I've ever had, but definitely much higher than average. Drive through took a bit, but was well worth it.

This is my favorite chicken place. The chicken is fried crispy and not greasy. The pieces are large. The onion rings are very good. Livers are available and also burgers. You can order a meal or chicken by the piece. It is busy around meal times. This place is an excellent value.

I've had several food items from this place nod their fried chicken is my favorite (their burgers are a close second). They also have great frid shrimp, baked chicken and fried catfish! I would suggest calling ahead and going inside to pick up, because some people order things at the drive thru, that take a while to cook.

Really big pieces- very flavorful home style fried chicken. I went to drive thru and was served within minutes. French fries were regular, not salty enough, boring.

Since original owner not there, place has gone down. For such a great product they sell and everyone wanting it, it sucks that the front counter people are so rude and don't know what to do! Thank goodness I only brave going once in a while since I can't get used to the rude help. Best chicken, fresh hot and... More

Been having a poboy craving and haven't been able to find a good place. This place was awesome. Service was fast and professional. Huge eating area and a drive thru. Large menu everything made in fresh. Loved my catfish poboy.

This place is the bomb. You can not buy better fried chicken in Lafayette. The quality of the cut, the fry, and the customer service is exceptional. They actually don't want to sell you the chicken that is under the heat lamp. They have twice asked if we would wait 8 or 10 minutes for them to fry some "fresh"... More
