Stopped on way to beach. Good food and very modest lunch prices. Pie, cole slaw, chicken, beans and milk shake was great. Service was great. Place was clean and had ample seating. Will be back for sure.

We decided to try this after a middle school basketball game we traveled to. They had a note taped on the glass door that said if you don't like cigarette smoke then pretty much do not come in. We decided to go in only because their was hardly anyone there. Food was good fried pickles and tomatoes were great. The... More

Great chicken and sides. Great people. What a small town restaurant is supposed to be. You can depend on them for good food.

I reviewed this great place about two years ago and couldn't resist stopping here for lunch again today on the way to Destin. It was even better than before!! The best fried chicken I have had in years and the veggies are fantastic. If you travel to and from the FL panhandle and go near Laverne, AL, make sure you... More

Good service, good food. Mostly fried items on menu- but this should be NO surprise. Chicken, slaw and fries were delicious. Desserts looked good, but didn't succumb.

One of my favorite dishes is the Kickin' Chicken fingers- either on a sandwich or a meal. Fried or grilled fingers in a wonderfully... More

We stopped at the Chicken Shack on the way back from the Gulf Coast. Our lunch was very enjoyable. The chicken strips were 100% white meat & so moist. The fried chicken was delicious. The fries are fresh cut and tasty. We ended our meal with the peach cobbler, YUM! I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The prices were also... More
