My son-in-law and I have been here two or three times for their wings. They are among the best ones I have had in Western NC and the price is reasonable. They did have a little trouble getting our orders correct each time we have been there, but they wind up making it right!

I eat here all the time. Their dipped chicken is some of the best I have. They have a good selection of sides.

On Friday I called in my order and it was ready for pick up when I arrived. Great service! I love to frequent this place for pickup, lunch and dinner. The pork chop sandwich is awesome and wings are great! Owners are great people!

You can't beat this place. The sauce on the chicken and wings is unbelievable. Good beer to go with your food as well and the people are like family.

Snowy day which may had contributed to reduced traffic but I decided to go to Phifer;s and it was almost deserted.

I met up with an old friend at this place. He is from the area and suggested it. I probably would not have stopped here on my own since it looks pretty drab from the road. I got the 10 hot wings and broccoli cheese casserole. The wings were good, much larger than you find at Hooters or BWW. The... More

I wished they had homemades sides to go with the good chicken and bbq. Its sad when you have great meat on your plate along side of store bought sides. Also I think they can do better with customer service. over-all this place is average.
