Be prepared for a long wait (we waited an hour at about midnight) and then possibly the best fried chicken of your life. This place is bustling at all hours, and for good reason. All of the sides are delicious, and the chicken is so...More

The Hot Chicken at Prince's is outstanding. I could eat it every day. Sure, you have to wait, the neighborhood isn't great, and it's a little pricey, but boy is it worth it. My only advice is to avoid it in the summer when the...More

I wanted to give this place a 1, but the food was too good. It is so poorly run, dirty, slow, everything you could do to make for a terrible restaurant they are doing. The sides are awful. Beans from a can and nothing special....except...More

Both locations have the same exact chicken. But if you want to sit down, go to the South location. Lots of seating. The workers are not as friendly as the North location, but it's not too bad. But you're going here for the chicken which...More

Imagine purchasing chicken fingers from Burger King then refrying until dry and leathery then add a cheep cayenne pepper powder and perhaps some other undistinguishable hot sauce. Serve on a piece of white bread, I think to soak up excess oil, and try to find...More

We waited over an hour and left with no chicken. This place is a filthy dump in a bad hood. The service is painfully slow and surly. Money back? Good luck. I would not attempt without a concealed weapon. I have no idea why it...More
