“Nice quiet spot. The restaurant was very clean and packed with customers. The fried chicken was crispy and the portion sizes are massive (more than enough for two people). There was only one server working so the service was quite slow but you can tell he was doing his best. Highly recommend! ”

“We are so glad we finally tried this place out, we got their Half & Half with Honey Butter and Cheese Butter. The fried chicken was SUPER juicy, crispy and well-seasoned. Honey Butter tasted exactly like the Korean Honey Butter Chips (IYKYK), and the Cheese Butter tasted like KD with a hint of sweetness Also loved the friendly service!!”
