Wow! Jul 25, 2014
We did a daytrip to Memphis, and this place was recommended to us.

We read reviews online and most people were saying it was the best fried chicken they ever had.

I thought to myself "really?" "How good can it be?"

Well, they are right! The food was fantastic, especially the chicken! It is crisp and spicy on the outside, and so moist on the inside.

We ordered a two piece platter with white meat. It came with cole slaw and beans. We had a dessert of chess pie and sweet potato pie.

They have a typical beverage selection of soft drinks, tea, and lemonade. They also have a nice beer selection, and you can even get a 40 ounce beer right in the bottle!

The place is a real dive inside, but you are there for the food. The staff were excellent! It always seems to be packed and the staff are friendly and efficient.

There is plenty of free street parking around the restaurant.

I would absolutely go back! I may even fly down and bring back a bucket of chicken!

Sometimes the local dive joints are better than the fancier restaurants.
