Awesome chicken! They usually have a line out the door, but it moves pretty fast. Inside and outside seating is available. They have several levels of heat for the chicken. Southern - No heat Mild - a tad - MY favorite Medium - I can only eat 2 bites Hot - This will make you cry Shut the Cluck Up - You'll cry and snot yourself, as you're grasping for air and think about what I'm saying. Don't try and eat this one unless you have a steel stomach, and a mouth you don't care about damaging.
