I love Skipper John's chicken but it is overpriced! Not crazy about the customer service either. Employees make you feel like you are putting them out instead of appreciating you. I am a regular customer so this is not a one time review!

Tried this out last night and the chicken was very salty. I actually had to take the skin off. the meat of the chicken was very tender and tasty though. We ordered the white fish and it was pretty thin and had a few bones in it. I am not sure we will go back again.

My children and their spouses are crazy for this fried chicken just get your orders in early. When they come to town we always get this chicken.

Don't be fooled by the exterior OR the interior of this to-go only restaurant. This no frills restaurant has been around for decades. A simple menu of mostly fried chicken, fried seafood, and fried side items has changed little in years. Prepare to get your month's serving of grease and salt in one meal, but it will be worth it! You will want to phone your order in at least 20-30 minutes before you want to pick it up, or be prepared to wait in one of the three or four chairs available. And, take cash... no checks or credit cards accepted!

Excellent fried chicken. Hot, tasty and perhaps a smidge salty but seriously people, that's the nature of the fried chicken beast. Call ahead to order if you're in a hurry but if you're not, it's fun to watch the droves of people flowing in and out to get their takeout orders. Bring cash, they don't take anything else. If you're a clean freak, pop a Xanax before you go because it is a hole in the wall with a continuously operating fryer, and all that portends. If you base your self esteem on being able to make extended bubbly chat with the counter help, you will be disappointed. You'll be eating in your car or elsewhere; yes there's a table of sorts out front but I just wouldn't make any serious sit down plans. But go. It is what it is and I'll be back.
