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!

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.
