The chicken is the star here, outstanding, whether you get the sauce on the bird or on the side. Go to the counter to place your order, get your plate and plastic ware ( one drawback- plastic utensils for fried chicken ) get beans, mac and cheese, or coleslaw, all are homemade and delicious. Get a Pepsi or tea from the fountain and you are in business. Small dining area, but comfortable and clean. Five stars even with the plastic ware, eat your chicken with your fingers!

Excellent food. Very southern/soul. Menu is limited yet exceptional. Don't expect super atmosphere, but folks are nice and the portions very nice. Great place for lunch!

This place comes across as a "hole in the wall" but it will not disappoint, The chicken is the dip type of chicken but not the Buffalo sauce style of dip chicken. Instead of being crazy hot it has a subtle heat index :) with a spice and a sweet taste. When I visited, I had the breast/wing with the two sides of mac & cheese with collard greens, oh let's not forget the roll for lappin up the sauce.The chicken is moist, the mac was not overstated or understated. I was suprised the greens had the bacon pieces with the right texture and not that diced-up mess from a can. I will be making my way back there again

I was curious about Slappy's because if an article in the Our State, Celebrating North Carolina magazine. The article was called The Bucket List: 42 Carolina Chicken Joints. Apple's was one of the two from Winston-Salem.
As for the chicken it was spice, but not too much and sweet. This combination works me because the spice does not overpower the taste of the chicken. The chicken itself was tender with a nice crunch. The mac & cheese was simplicity at its best and the collard greens which was my second side had good texture with bacon pieces but just a tad on the sweet side, not my favorite in greens but its done to take away the bitter of greens. Will be going back!

This great little restaurant in Washington Park is unbelievable! Keep it mind it's a very limited menu with few choices, but everything they serve is delicious. Their yummy fried chicken is drenched in hot sauce and served with yummy sides like mac n cheese, greens, and baked beans. This restaurant does very limited advertising and is promoted mainly on social media and through word of mouth, but it is always packed! Do t miss out! Go to Slappy's!
