Hands down, by far the BEST FRIED CHICKEN!! I have been wanting to visit for a few years, and I finally made it! Just basic, good ole southern fried chicken! Walked in, ordered and boom!! The chicken was so full of flavor, and hot and crispy!! The staff was friendly and I will definatly be back soon! I ordered a whole chicken, because 4 pieces would not have made it back to Hickory!!
Food was horrible!!! The wings were not hot as well as the fries!!! The cole slaw was old!!! My mom says the food isn't what it use to be!!! My daughter said her hamburger wasn't good!!! They don't sell sodas. They have the drink machine that charges $1 for a small can drink. I will never go back!!!
Food is pretty good but to say it's the best fried chicken in Charlotte seems generous to me. The food was fresh and the service was very good but the chicken itself didn't taste seasoned enough to me. The fries also were not seasoned. This is the type of chicken that needs some hot sauce in my opinion. Overall I think it's okay and I would return if I was already nearby but I wouldn't go out of my way to come here.
This use to be my favorite place. As of late it hasn't been good. I always ask for a hot box. Food was cold last time. Coke slaw tasted spoiled, fries were old and the fish wasn't hot and fresh. So I guess I want be going as much. Gave them a one star because of the cashier! Always smiling and friendly.
What an experience! It has been years since I enjoyed great fried chicken. Price's is the best and their gizzards are to die for. Also they have the best sweet tea. Went there with another couple, which was their first time. We all enjoyed it thoroughly. We will not wait so long to return.
