We were pleasantly surprised at this little gem. The chicken was very tender, juicy and delicious. They also have great biscuits and fried okra. Definitely a must if you are ever in town.

If you want chicken that tastes good, if you want to avoid getting your food in a timely manner, and you want to eat at a place in Edenton before 8pm, then this is the place for you. A good thing about this place is that their breakfast are pretty good.

Food was not as tasty as it used to. Staff very friendly. Good price for the value. Place clean. Location good. Plenty of food for the price. Maybe I'm older since my last visit but didn't taste the same

Like everyone has said before me...the girls behind the counter are rude, as if they are bothered by taking ur order. You've be better off at the drive thru so you don't have to deal with them. Chicken is great, biscuits taste fresh baked! I had the fried okra....sooo good!! Take my advice...use the drive thru

They have really good food but the customer service spoils you from buying there. To the management team if you want to continue to have your customers come back Train your workers to be more courteous towards the customer who help to pay their salaries.

Why can't the managers/owners of this place get decent staff? What is going on behind the scenes that makes these workers so awful? Their food has always been pretty darn good. This would counteract SOME of the rudeness of their unprofessional staff. Unfortunately the last two times I've been here the food was not good. I would be lying if... More

If you want the Best Chicken ever, come here. The atmosphere is not good. Tables were dirty. The staff looked like they were tired and kept talking to each other. But, if you don't mind all that and just want to get a bucket of chicken to go, then come here. I heard the fried shrimp is good, but we... More

Food is good but service sucks! You will be lucky if you can get a grunt out of the person who takes your order. Don't expect to get your order correct. The tables are normally sticky so get a lot of napkins and spread them on the table while you are waiting for your food. This place could do a... More
