We always stop at AQ when passing through Springdale. Best fried chicken on the planet by a long shot. Love their oven roasted fried chicken.

Server was indifferent. Food was okay but pricey for what you get. I had the fried chicken, greasy but good. My wife had a grilled chicken salad, she said it was good.

We love to order the over the coals fried chicken and there creamer spinach is amazing. Service is ok, but we are usually there close to closing time or getting it to go. I would definitely recommend this place.

Double fried french fries, amazing chicken, and fresh preserves on buttered rolls, it does not get any better than this. Such a fun place with lots of cool memorabilia, wait staff was very friendly and accommodating: we had a great experience.

Love their chicken but if you are really hungry don't order the catfish dinner. I ordered it and everyone else at the table laughed when my plate was set in front of me. The children plates had more on them than mine had. Don't get...More

What has happened to the sides? You see the bad reviews. Can't you do something? Warm the rolls bake the Mac and cheese. At least serve the food hot. I hate to see one of my favorite places go down hill.

We were there back in late May early afternoon after the lunch crowd and our food was excellent - except I thought the fried chicken was too peppery but that's my taste. Despite being after the lunch hour, the food tasted... More
