Chicken thats worth the drive! May 16, 2011
I have been going to Rips for the last 10 plus years now. Going here with buddies or having a family get together it’s always good chicken and a great time. If you are planning on going on a Friday or Saturday plan on waiting in line for a couple hours, the line is normally out the door and around the corner. Once you are in the door, you are able to get drinks while you wait. They don’t hand out menus and most of the time it’s not even wrote on the board what they serve. The menu is well chicken, 1/4 white, 1/4 dark, strips, fish (On Friday Only), mushrooms, crispies, and pickles. They will take your order while you are still in line. If you go here crispies and pickles are a must, there’s no wrong way to eat them. The chicken comes out piping hot served with French fries and a piece of bread under the chicken to soak up some grease. The chicken has a great flavor but can be slightly greasy from time to time. Rips has been open since 1936, for a small town they know how fry some chicken.

It is defiantly worth the drive, price, and the wait!
