If you are planning a special evening for that special someone, I recommend breaking out a bottle of wine and going somewhere else. This ain't that kind of place.

This place serves excellent chicken/fish dishes, and is always busy. Order at the counter and food is brought to your table. The atmosphere is very casual. I recommend you go at times other than meal hours, due to the crowd. You won't be disappointed.

Description
Serving deliriously good fried chicken and southern soul food, Rocky's prepares "hot" chicken with the spice level any way you like it from plain to extra hot. Using natural birds and quality ingredients in our made-from-scratch recipes, we offer delicious American classics like mac and cheese, corn pudding, and collard greens among many more. Mouthwatering desserts include banana pudding and coca cola cake. We make everything fresh, in small batches, for a difference you can taste!
