Whenever someone asks me where they should eat in Durham, I tell them Chicken Hut. The cooking here reminds me of eating homemade, country cooking at my Grandma’s house in Eastern North Carolina growing up. Everyone there is so friendly and welcoming that it just feels like home. The fried chicken is made to order, so it is always fresh and crispy. It is literally the best you are going to find anywhere, not just Durham. The sides, desserts, and sweet tea never miss either. Chicken Hut is just the best.

Simply the best fried chicken in the area. Very friendly staff too. I did not expect them to remember us (I think we only went there 3x before). They remember I used to go with my teenage daughter last summer. Be ready for the long line/wait. But it’s worth it.

I’m from Florida and was staying in Greensboro for the Junior Olympics. I drove over to Durham roughly an hour. I arrived early and was second in line as I’m waiting more and more people lined up outside so I asked about the food and the guys around me were bragging about everything. I’m a little skeptical but was going to try a few things. I ended up buying 5 dinners. 3 chicken dinners that are cooked to order, a chitterlings and oxtail dinner. Mr. Jeff, the guy serving in the line remembered how to pronounce my name and he was very cool. The food was superb and the chicken was totally different from anything I’d ever had in the south. It was coated with a unique batter that made it flaky, crispy and tasty. I generally take pics of my plates but I didn’t and for that I’m sorry. I gave my wife and sister-in-law a plate and they were trying to figure it out as well. We came up with a synopsis: quit trying to guess what flavor and save The Chicken Hut for whenever we’re in North Carolina to visit again. You won’t go wrong my friends

The chicken was good. Loved the spaghetti. Tasted even better when I ate the left overs the next day

We are in town doing college visits I am so happy that a friend directed us to the Chicken Hut. The fried chicken is the best that I have ever had-so crispy on the outside but the meat is moist. Great sides- collard greens, yams, mac&cheese. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back the next time that we are in town

This is by far some of the best fried chicken I have had. We came here during the pandemic and ordered to go and today was the first time I ordered inside. The team working here is so friendly and help guide you along the counter. You can pick a chicken meal with two sides and the food is displayed cafeteria-style so you can see and pick what you would like. The fried chicken is alway piping hot and crispy and very flavorful.

It was busy but worth it. My coworkers and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and service. It felt like family dinner. Thank you Chicken Hut Family.

I’ve had their chicken and now their ribs, neither disappoints! Mmm so good! I’ve read this place has been a staple in durham and I hope it continues to have success for years to come. Their food is delicious and a 5/5. I don’t think anyone comes for the lemonade but it could use less sugar.

Good food…. Cafeteria style restaurant with a variety of meats and vegetables. They also offer cakes and cobblers.

The chicken was so crispy! Bring cash because the credit card machine often doesn’t work. Takes about 10 minutes for them to fry your chicken once you order
