I loved everything about my food. You have to understand that my rating has nothing to do with these sandwiches. The chicken was juicy and the sauce was amazing. They had cocktail sauce for the fries, which gave me all the life I needed at that moment. The reason I’m giving this place three stars is for the experience. My first visit, I need a minute to gather my thoughts on the menu, and put together an idea of a good first experience. The cashier/waitress rushed me and gave me these looks like it was my first day out. There were a lot of sighs as I struggled to find the sides (printed very small in a corner of the menu). I just don’t like when a service person acts like they can’t be bothered to deal with a customer. That is truly your job: customer service. If it’s beneath you, best of luck in whatever you find, but let someone who can do it do it.

The dozens of unique dipping sauces was a delight for my senses, chicken is always cooked to perfection. Just wish they had non-spicy dipping sauce option for kids... Even the Ranch had a kick to it.

The celery slaw was pretty good. The cucumber salad was excellent. All else was average. But kind of pricey. Might try it once more, but not hopeful...

I loved this place the first time I went here, best fried chicken I've had in many years. But they've taken whole and half chickens completely off of the menu. The only thing you can get is a chicken breast, tenders, and various sandwiches. Sides are generally good but potato salad needs help. It's become more like an elevated Chick-fil-A. Sad and baffling.

Friendly service, great food, reasonable prices and wait time. Fried chicken is so good! Highly recommend eating here.

Nice casual comfy place with really well seasoned and lightly battered chicken tenders. Love the sauce bar. Tons of options that were all pretty tasty. The sweet potato shoestrings are more like fry size, but still really good. I'm giving a 4 star due to the chicken tenders being a little on the small side.

I liked this place alot better when they had an expanded menu. If I'm in the mood for chicken now, I'll go to other places. Please bring back the fried chicken. Chicken tenders aren't a substitute for a chicken quarter. On the positive side, their Asian cucumber salad is wonderful.

My daughter and I shared the shrimp platter. It was delicious. Crispy on the outside and nice and soft inside. The fries were perfect; again nice and crisp outside and soft inside. They have the best ever sweet potato fries. The place is clean.

Went for the .50 cent wings. Was very impressed. And a sauce bar that was awesome. Food was hot & fresh. Will definitely go back

Yummy, affordable dining! More than just fried chicken too! Seafood, veggie burgers, salads and yummy sides. Plus the sauce bar!! 😋 And they have a bar for drinks and prices are really fair.

I visited for the first time and it was a pleasant experience. It is a standard casual order and bring a number to your table place. I got a chicken tenders basket with mac-n-cheese and coleslaw. The food arrived quickly and was hot. The tenders were nicely breaded and juicy. They have a sauce bar with a bunch of choices. I chose a spicy Thai chili. I enjoyed it all, I would have enjoyed the Mac and cheese more if it had been baked or at least a quick broil to brown the crumbles.

Great family fun and food. Excellent fried chicken as well as catfish and shrimp. And some nice local bluegrass every Thursday. Laid-back casual and entertaining.

Food is good, love the building. I'd love to see a bit more variety in the menu. My only disappointment lies in all the disposable products. Cups, plates, cutlery, condiment cups. Nothing but the baskets get reused.

Stopped by for lunch and got the chicken sandwich and mac & cheese. Great food and service. Nice variety of sauces to try. Looking forward to going back!

Located on the broad Street, this place has fashioned decor with amazing chicken. We loved the fact that you could sample all kinds of sauce. The chicken sandwich was perfect - very crispy on the outside and moist inside. The sides are great too. Spice cucumber is one of my favorites. Surprisingly, there is a vegetarian option too! There is plenty of seating area.

The chicken here is so good. They have burger and fish options as well. For those that don't eat meat, they have salad options as well. We love eating here!

This is super convenient for me as a student, but a tad bit expensive for my budget. Nevertheless, I always find myself going back for more! There’s plenty of seating for the number of people I usually see there and they also have carry out options. The food itself is good and there are lots of options for both meals and even the sauces.

I stopped in here one day after grabbing some coffee at Joe van Gogh and was delightfully surprised. At first I thought I was about to get some run of the mill chicken place but they actually have some great fried Chicken. My chicken sandwich was nice and crunchy. I also asked for my pickles on the side and they gave me a whole helping of pickles on the side 😂. If your in the area stop by, you won't be disappointed.

The chicken was nice and crispy and the flavor wasn't bad or the best, but the sauces were good. The spicy Asian cucumbers were good as well. Plenty of seating indoor and outdoor (great covered patio area). Also parking was easy, there's a lot next to the building.

So I'm driving by on my way home looking for something to eat and I see something that says buttermilk breaded chicken. So I go in there talk to the cashier and end up ordering 10. the crazy part about the 10 wings is the fact that you get 10 wings bread and a side for $8. That's a great deal. I ended up getting the macaroni and cheese adding a potato salad and I got the lemonade. I must say that overall I am very happy. I went in with no expectations and came out with a new restaurant to go to. Thanks.

Looking for pretty decent chicken in Durham? Look no further. Their food has really good flavoring and is super filling. I'm not too familiar with the Durham area, but they seem to be in a tucked away spot, away from a lot of hustle and bustle. Consider it a hidden gem. Lots of seating inside, and they also have some tables outside. They also have a sauce bar with plenty of options! Only complaint was from my boyfriend, who said his Cali Style Sandwich was soggy - when we go back, he'll ditch anything with a bun and go straight for chicken tenders. The toppings and condiments might have been a bit too much for the bread they use. Overall, I can't wait to go back!

I’ve eaten here twice in the last month and I’ve liked it both times. The first time I ordered the fried chicken with sweet potato fries and crinkle cut fries. The crinkle cut are great, I wasn’t a huge fan of the sweet potato fries (2 much seasoning for me). The sauce bar is GREAT! The fried chicken was a little soggy and had way 2 much breading for me. The 2 time, I got a burger and was pleasantly surprised. It was delicious. The bun was pretty standard, but the burger was TASTY. I got the crinkle cut fries and they were perfectly cooked! I also tried the spicy cucumbers and they were SPICEY! I love the atmosphere of this place and the staff are GREAT! I will be back in the near future.

I have tried to love this place, but I just can't get there. It is good. I like eating there. Physical space is nice. Chicken is good. Love the selection of sides. Prices are fine. Counter order but service generally decent. I have had my online order screwed up with missing items, but I don't hold that against them. I just am not really blown away by anything. Admittedly, this is an example of expectations creating a situation in which I am holding the bar higher, but I find this place to be "fine" or "pretty good."
