If you like chicken, this is the place for you. Beats KFC by a clear mile! The food tasted as good as I remembered it from Jeddah, KSA. Go for the hot n spicy, you won't regret it. Fast food but utterly delicious, and the biscuits, mmmmm.

Very popular Louisiana-styled chicken chain restaurant. Staff works hard, food generally very good for what it is.

I chose this place to eat because it seemed to be like KFC. I ate chicken tenders, biscuit and green beans. Chicken was great like this kind of chicken usually is, but rest were bad. Biscuit were not suitable for sour food more like a dessert. And the green beans, yak. If you want veggies in here don't take them.

I got my dinner packed from the place - it was not the outlet given here but at 240 West 40th Street at Times Square & enjoyed the food. Back home in India, we generally have only KFC as an option to try fried chicken & other similar food items. So I wanted to try at some other place while... More

The service and food was really good. Also got free refills on soda not sweet tea. The bathroom and clean. The combo was good and was a lot. The biscuit was good. Good for the money and sure wasn't hard on the food budget.

Handy place to eat on the way back to our hotel. Staff friendly but chicken quality not up to KFC, although my wife says the side of fries and rice was excellent. tables could have been a little cleaner.

I never get enough of this chicken place. I discovered this fast food chain on a trip to New Orleans. The people in New Orleans know good good and this is GOOD food. I like the spicy version. Some of their sides and not to great, but some are. The red beans, when served are usually good. I don't care... More
