there's fried chicken and then there's AJs fried chicken and there's no comparison between the two. It's cooked when you order it so be prepared for a bit of a wait for your piping hot freshly made perfectly seasoned scrumptious chicken. Can't review any of...More
Surprised to learn this place has been open for 10 years! We didn't hear about it until this trip to Apalachicola. Maybe cuz it's a soul food place?? Great chicken tenders, not previously frozen and mass produced. Husband had the "pimp tight" basket. 2 nice...More
