Great Fried Chicken – Fried chicken is one of those comfort foods that I find myself trying wherever I go. Price's is 1b to Gus' World Famous Fried Chicken in Memphis' 1a. If you know Gus', you know that being 1b is quite the compliment. Every time I'm in Charlotte I have to make the pilgrimage to Price's. The folks working there are always smiling and I think that's because they know they are creating a memorable meal time after time. Well worth the time to find and stand in line...
Good Stuff! – Delicious old school home cooking. I bring my out of town clients over here and they always leave impressed; even enjoying it more than the five star fine dining. I get the 1/4 chicken dark meat every time. Juicy, crispy and oh so flavorful.
Best Fried CHICKEN!! – YUM YUM YUM! Simply the best. I am addicted! Prices is awesome. wohhoooooo
Best Fried Chicken I've Had – I've eaten here quite a few times since living in Charlotte and every time it reminds me of how lucky I am to have it so close to home.
They run a well oiled machine here where you walk in (if you don't have to wait in a line) and order, pay, step to the right or left depending on what side of the counter you are on, take your food and walk out so the next person can get their fix. No questions, no issues, in and out situation.
The chicken is phenomenal; juicy and tender, always cooked to perfection. The crispiness of the skin and breading has a nice spice which gives it an amazing texture.
The sides are quick inexpensive ways of filling up your stomach and nothing spectacular, but it fits the bill with what you're getting. In your chicken box as I like to call it, you get a heaping load of tator tots, a roll, two hush puppies and coleslaw. Order a sweet tea, it's very good but it's also pretty darn sweet, but puts an end to a good old southern meal.
As I'm sure you're aware, It's not the healthiest meal, but it'll be one of the best ones you have.
PRICE'S CHICKEN COOP – I HAVE BEEN GOING TO THE "COOP" FOR OVER, OVER 40 YEARS. THE "COOP" IS A CHARLOTTE ICON AS WELL AS A CHARLOTTE LANDMARK. BEST CHICKEN AROUND, GREAT STAFF, GREAT PRICES. IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DON'T LIKE THE CHICKEN COOP, JUST REMEMBER, "IT'S A SOUTHERN THING", IF YOU'RE FROM THE NORTH, YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND.
Believe the hype – First time there and can't wait to go back. Ate it at home a few hours after we bought it. It was great, but next time I'll eat it in the car when it's still hot. The chicken is very moist and the skin is crispy. The livers are nice and crispy too. The potato salad is good, the slaw is a little soupy. The prices are ridiculously cheap. Give it a try, you won't regret it.
Grease is not a spice – There is no seasoning. None. The only "spice" is a packet of salt you get in your box of chicken. Maybe this is how Southern fried chicken is supposed to taste, but if you're from another part of the country, you will be disappointed.
Greasy Not Fit To Eat – OMG I had heard the hype over this place when I first moved to charlotte. I had a chance to eat their it was terrible, food greasy and not fit to eat.......maybe you will have better luck than I did.
Great Southern Chicken Ecofriendly – This ain't a wing ranch. Go for the breast , dark meat, or chicken livers. You won't be disappointed. Get there about 11:30 AM or before if you can. There is a usually a line (nuff said about how good it is). Their takeout box is eco-friendly as it is made of cardboard - not styrofoam.
DID WE ORDER THE WRONG THING???? – OK I TOOK MY BOYFRIEND TO CHARLOTTE (WE LIVE IN VA) FOR HIS BIRTHDAY IN JANUARY OF 08' TO SEE THE PISTONS VS BOBCATS(HE'S A DIE HARD PISTONS FAN) BUT ANYWAY WE WERE GONNA BE THERE FOR 3 DAYSAND I WANTED US TO EAT AT LOCAL RESTAURANTS ONLY SO I SURFED THE NET TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY HAD TO OFFER AND RAN ACROSS PRICE'S. WELL NEEDLESS TO SAY I BROUGHT INTO THE HYPE OF THE PLACE AND SOON AS WE TOUCHED DOWN THATS WHERE WE WENT(BAD MOVE) THE FOOD WAS BELOW AVERAGE WE BOTH ORDERED THE CHICKEN WING MEAL WHICH WE DIDNT OPEN UNTIL WE GOT TO OUR ROOM WELL IT HAD MAYBE 6 LITTLE DRUMMETTES,TATER TOTS AND A ROLL. THE CHICKEN WAS TOO HARDWITH NO TASTE AND DID NOT FILL US UP AT ALL. I WAS REALLY EXPECTING SOME BANGIN CHICKEN FROM READING THOSE REVIEWS AND THIS JUST DIDNT CUT IT. THE ONLY REASON I'M WRITING A REVIEW 6MTHS LATER IS BECAUSE I WAS LISTENING TO STEVE HARVEY THE OTHER DAY AND HE'S HAVING HIS ANNUAL HOODIE AWARDS AND IT WAS TIME FOR HIM TO READ THE RESULTS FOR BEST CHICKEN PLACE AND YES YOU GUESSED IT NOT ONLY DID PRICES MAKE THE LIST BUT THEY WERE VOTED NUMBER ONE. WHICH MADE ME ASK DID WE ORDER THE WRONG CHICKEN??????
