I've lived in WI almost 50 years and I grew up eating this chicken...my kids used to eat this chicken.....it used to be a treat. The past few years the chicken is so greasy, we can't get it down.

The best fried chicken to be found anywhere. A West Islip secret for many years, nobody that has been to this place ever goes back to "chain store" chicken. Great Jo Jo's (potatoes), vegetables, some fish, but the chicken is the star here.

If you are in the mood for comfort food, flavor crisp might do the trick. Their signature pressure fried chicken is perfect every time and the Jo Jo's- don't call'em french fries...more like steak fries with crunchy bits are addictive. Mention chicken and jo-jos as part of an event and you will draw a crowd.

Good fried chicken. Nice flavor and not dry. Jojos (potatos) are good too. Only real draw back is lack of delivery. In this area it is almost a given that this business should have delivery.

Chicken cooked to order and is always moist and not greasy. JoJo's (Fried potato wedges) are excellent.
