Skipper John's has been in the same location for over 25 years, which should speak for itself. It is carry-out only so you should always call ahead. Their food is cooked fresh to order and it has the best fried chicken/fish I have ever had!

Wait... It is better than that. It is your grandma's fried chicken. You will wait for your food to come out hot and fresh. No inside seating but a couple of tables outside if you can't wait until you get home. If you are anywhere...More

This is a take out only place, so call your order ahead when possible. If you don't, you'll have to wait 20-25 minutes since the chicken is made to order. This is by far the best chicken I've ever had. Seasoned to perfection. Some might...More

Skipper John's fried chicken is better than any other chicken on earth. The fish is also good, but you go and get that chicken and some potatoes from Wal-mart and you got your meal!!!

If you're looking for the best fried chicken in Perry -- here it is. Skip KFC and head to Skipper Johns... but be ready for take-out because there is no seating. A local favorite for a quick lunch!

They carry plenty of items on there menu but their chicken can not be beat. It's takeout but they do have a table or two outside. Call ahead it takes about 20 minutes.
