Price's is a must in Charlotte! The best fried chicken in the world. Make sure to bring cash and there's no place to eat inside. So buy your food (with cash) and eat it elsewhere. You can order large quantities of chicken for large gatherings and the chicken will still be delicious.

You always have to stand in line, but WORTH it !!!! If you can make it to your destination without having to sample, well you have more will power than me.Sometimes I walk out the door to the right and start eating on the steps as anticipation is too far away. I always get the fried chicken,hush puppies and fried... More

I had never been here before but have heard great things about the food and quick service. I got there around 1115ish (highly suggested to get there around this time as the line is out the door and along the sidewalk if you come after 12p) there is metered parking on Camden in front of the business. I parked in... More

The chicken was very good. I am not going to say it is the best I have ever had. But it is still very tasty. It had almost a fried/broasted texture, which I liked. It had a good taste and the meat was juicy and tender. The fries were good. The coleslaw is kind of a sweeter mayo based slaw.... More

Chicken was good...I got the wings and while it was tasty, they were very small. I was a little surprised how small they were. My friend got the dark meat dinner and she got one thigh and 2 legs. They also give you 2 hush puppies French fries and a small container of slaw. All I can say is I've... More

Good price, good food. It reminds me of those old soul food shacks I was taken to as a child. Cheap, good.

On recent visit to Charlotte, my husband wanted our family to see this landmark place. We're glad to see it is surviving & still thriving in this area, where the train has built up the surroundings, new apt buildings, etc. The chicken - yes, it was good, nice salty brined flavor, lighty breaded (not too much, just right). I'd say... More

This is some of the best fried chicken you will find in Charlotte. Get there early if you want to park even for 5 minutes. The line at lunchtime can get long.

Prices has been the benchmark for the best chicken in Not only Charlotte but NC Sadly, thus last visit was a disappointment. We purchased two all white whole chickens and sides Until now the chickens were plump and the breeding just perfectly crisp. These last two chickens were anexoric and the breeding different. Not so crispy and light. The. Cole... More
