Tips from locals
Whoa this is some really good chicken! Go to the one downtown on Front St. Afterward, walk west to the end of Vance St. to Vance Park for a great view of the city.
Tender, perfectly spiced chicken and delicious sides. Not too spicy, just spicy enough! On the go? Order plenty for the best picnic ever!
Known to have the BEST Fried Chicken in America and has been on the Food Network multiple times. Don't leave Memphis without stopping here first. Delicious!!
