Good customer service! Food was excellent. Chicken Hut has never let me down! Best fried chicken in Durham, and the oxtails are fall off the bone tender!

People can be a little close together in there sometimes but it's worth the wait. Just wear your mask and stay in your own zone. Get that fresh hot Soul Food.

The portions were good. The price is fair. The mac n cheese was good but not great. Interesting twist on the black eyed peas with sweet corn mixed in. But the chicken was excellent! Great taste, nice and crispy, and not overly greasy. As the name implies, the fried chicken is their specialty. Well worth the stop and multiple visits.

Chicken Hut is amazing! I’ve had several dishes and I don’t believe I’ve had anything I didn’t like. The customer service is top notch and they really make you feel welcomed. If I didn’t live 40 minutes away, I’d eat there everyday!

I decided to try this place after reading about all the good reviews. So I’m going to give my honest opinion. First, the location is definitely sketchy. It’s smack down in the hood. I had two people ask me for money within a two minute span. There’s bars on the window and the door. So the location definitely isn’t the best. The set up is also weird. They need signage because it’s super confusing. The staff is also not the friendliest. They’re not necessarily rude, but definitely not friendly. On to the food, it was pretty good! The chicken was made fresh. It’s made with a weird type of batter. It’s not nasty, just nothing that I’ve tried before. The Mac and cheese is good!! The rolls are store bought. Overall, I give it a 3/5.And also, they take CASH ONLY! Come prepared!

Super friendly. Outstanding food. This was our time and we got there at the end of the day and they were out of the fried chicken and we tried the turkey wings and they were delicious!

What more can I say, but.....THE FOOD IS AWESOME! Moreover, I love that it is a locally-owned business putting out Delicious, High-Quality Food. The staff and management are very friendly and professional...many thanks for the great service.

The fried chicken is always fresh, hot and delicious. Not one to disrespect my elders but the elderly lady that runs the front really needs to retire. Customers often have to constantly repeat their orders. She gets orders wrong and she is often in a state of confusion and forgetful at times.

Just amazing southern comfort food! The Salisbury steak was incredible, but the mac n cheese was out of this world. The cabbage and collards were perfectly seasoned and tender. My son had fried chicken which was cooked as ordered and was crisp and juicy. This is going to be a stop everytime we are in town!

Love this Durham institution. I could eat their collard greens, mac & cheese and fried chicken until the cows come home! It's so delicious, and they offer great + friendly service too. Can't wait to go back on a Friday to get banana pudding!

This was an amazing experience! I'm new to the area, however, I've been here long enough someone should have told me about the Chicken Hut!!! I enjoyed everything from the location, atmosphere, history, people, and the FOOD! One of those times I wished my stomach was as big as my eyes!!! I will be back several times!

This was my first time eating here and I loved it. It truly reminded me of my grandma's cooking. I don't get to Duram often but this will be my spot for years to come.

This place is the definition of a hidden gem. Fresh, scrumptious food and attentive staff. Best fried chicken and the sides were good, too. From the outside it would be hard to guess that the inside is sparkling clean.

Love the food but I can't get with cash only. Too often when I want to stop by , I remember I don't have cash. Not sure why it is cash only. Can only wonder how many other customers might not stop by because they don't have cash.

What a beautiful establishment! My mother and I went there while I was recovering from surgery at Duke Hospital and we were treated like family! The food was delicious and incredibly well priced, and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. An easy recommendation to anyone in the area, and I hope they meet with nothing but continued success. They could not have been nicer!! If you like food prepared with skill and heart, this place will do you right every time.

If u looking for a good soul food place this is the spot. Had the pork chop dinner with Mac and cheese rice and gravy and hush puppies with a mix drink. When I tell you it was wonderful I swear it something special.

Consistently good food and customer service since I’ve been in Durham the past two years. Always something on the menu I love to eat. Reminds me of my Grandmas cooking growing up in rural South Carolina.

Arguably the best fried chicken in town. It's not all about the chicken either! The sides are equally good. Go for the greens (don't forget the hot sauce), Mac & Cheese, and beans. Apart from the food, Chicken Hut is supporting the community during these hard times, feeding kids and those in need. Thank you Chicken Hut, you have more than earned my business. See you again soon and thank you.
