I'm one of those people who gets sick from the msg Strouds uses but even without that fun fact, I much prefer this chicken at RC's. It's perfect chicken. Crispy on the outside, juicy meat on the inside. The mashed potatoes and gravy are to die for. I swear, there is not one visit where I don't see two totally... More

For all you chicken lovers, I can't say this place is bad. It's not, but it did remind me of Stroud's. The chicken is pan-fried and has a slightly different, buy not by much, coating. Let's get into my evening - We arrived and were quickly seated. The decor is interesting, but I didn't mind it. My husband ordered half... More

This a great place if you like fried chicken. Family style with mashed potatoes, gravy, freed beans, etc. you will probably take some chicken home.

Been to RC's many many times and generally we're quite happy with the food. Good variety of American style food menu selections, service is pleasant and efficient, prices are ok if not a bit high for the atmosphere, but not so bad we don't keep coming back. But I can't understand their need to charge more than 7% in a... More

First time back in ten years. I have been thinking about the chicken. The past. The future. Jeanine was out gal. She was great ! Friendly and kind. Checked on us often. She recommends the loaded skins and chicken. We got both. I would have added cheese to the salad and some better hot sauce (Franks). Kids menu check. Decent... More

The chicken tenders are huge (as are the chicken breasts) and the seasoning is spot-on. They serve the typical accompaniments (mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and biscuits) and all of those are tasty as well. My husband had the hot roast beef sandwich which was huge and also very yummy. Service was just as good as the delicious food!

I have been going to RC's since the early 90's. This place never disappoints. I always get the chicken fried chicken. It's the best I've had. All of the sides are family style, which can make it a little more fun I suppose. They have good meal deals as well - they have a deal for 2 or a deal... More

We stopped in because it was going to be a 45 minute wait at the Martin City Brewery & we could smell the good food smells coming from RC'S. What a great choice we made! It was every bit as good as Strouds! The chicken was crunchy & juicy. The chicken noodle soup was great. I saw another lady having... More

My parents wouldn't go in for a 60th anniversary party so they went for a lunch at RCs instead with some of their nieces and nephews. The arrangements were set up well, the food was good for a lot of different tastes. The portions were huge. I saw a couple of birthday parties and other anniversary parties too. Good for... More
