Fried chicken is one of those comfort foods that I find myself trying wherever I go. Price's is 1b to Gus' World Famous Fried Chicken in Memphis' 1a. If you know Gus', you know that being 1b is quite the compliment. Every time I'm in Charlotte I have to make the pilgrimage to Price's. The folks working there are always smiling and I think that's because they know they are creating a memorable meal time after time. Well worth the time to find and stand in line...

Delicious old school home cooking. I bring my out of town clients over here and they always leave impressed; even enjoying it more than the five star fine dining. I get the 1/4 chicken dark meat every time. Juicy, crispy and oh so flavorful.

I've eaten here quite a few times since living in Charlotte and every time it reminds me of how lucky I am to have it so close to home. \n\nThey run a well oiled machine here where you walk in (if you don't have to wait in a line) and order, pay, step to the right or left depending on what side of the counter you are on, take your food and walk out so the next person can get their fix. No questions, no issues, in and out situation.\n\nThe chicken is phenomenal; juicy and tender, always cooked to perfection. The crispiness of the skin and breading has a nice spice which gives it an amazing texture. \n\nThe sides are quick inexpensive ways of filling up your stomach and nothing spectacular, but it fits the bill with what you're getting. In your chicken box as I like to call it, you get a heaping load of tator tots, a roll, two hush puppies and coleslaw. Order a sweet tea, it's very good but it's also pretty darn sweet, but puts an end to a good old southern meal. \n\nAs I'm sure you're aware, It's not the healthiest meal, but it'll be one of the best ones you have. \n

Pros: Great Chicken, Inexpensive, Lots of Food, Sweet Tea

Cons: Busy, Parking, Ordering Can Be Initimidating To A Rookie

I HAVE BEEN GOING TO THE ""COOP"" FOR OVER, OVER 40 YEARS. THE ""COOP"" IS A CHARLOTTE ICON AS WELL AS A CHARLOTTE LANDMARK. BEST CHICKEN AROUND, GREAT STAFF, GREAT PRICES. IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DON'T LIKE THE CHICKEN COOP, JUST REMEMBER, ""IT'S A SOUTHERN THING"", IF YOU'RE FROM THE NORTH, YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND.

First time there and can't wait to go back. Ate it at home a few hours after we bought it. It was great, but next time I'll eat it in the car when it's still hot. The chicken is very moist and the skin is crispy. The livers are nice and crispy too. The potato salad is good, the slaw is a little soupy. The prices are ridiculously cheap. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

Pros: Great white meat and livers

Cons: Skip the slaw

There is no seasoning. None. The only ""spice"" is a packet of salt you get in your box of chicken. Maybe this is how Southern fried chicken is supposed to taste, but if you're from another part of the country, you will be disappointed.

This ain't a wing ranch. Go for the breast , dark meat, or chicken livers. You won't be disappointed. Get there about 11:30 AM or before if you can. There is a usually a line (nuff said about how good it is). Their takeout box is eco-friendly as it is made of cardboard - not styrofoam.

WELL NEEDLESS TO SAY I BROUGHT INTO THE HYPE OF THE PLACE AND SOON AS WE TOUCHED DOWN THATS WHERE WE WENT(BAD MOVE) THE FOOD WAS BELOW AVERAGE WE BOTH ORDERED THE CHICKEN WING MEAL WHICH WE DIDNT OPEN UNTIL WE GOT TO OUR ROOM WELL IT HAD MAYBE 6 LITTLE DRUMMETTES,TATER TOTS AND A ROLL. THE CHICKEN WAS TOO HARDWITH NO TASTE AND DID NOT FILL US UP AT ALL. I WAS REALLY EXPECTING SOME BANGIN CHICKEN FROM READING THOSE REVIEWS AND THIS JUST DIDNT CUT IT. THE ONLY REASON I'M WRITING A REVIEW 6MTHS LATER IS BECAUSE I WAS LISTENING TO STEVE HARVEY THE OTHER DAY AND HE'S HAVING HIS ANNUAL HOODIE AWARDS AND IT WAS TIME FOR HIM TO READ THE RESULTS FOR BEST CHICKEN PLACE AND YES YOU GUESSED IT NOT ONLY DID PRICES MAKE THE LIST BUT THEY WERE VOTED NUMBER ONE. WHICH MADE ME ASK DID WE ORDER THE WRONG CHICKEN??????

Pros: WORKERS WERE VERY FRIENDLY

Cons: FOOD WAS BAD

This place is as no-frills as it gets. Cash only, no seating, cinder-block walls. But that's OK--it's about the chicken. And that chicken is phenomenal. Perfectly seasoned, and perfectly cooked. Even the white-meat chicken, which at most places is dried out and bland, was juicy and flavorful. I was quite impressed. The sides are nothing to write home about, but are adequate, and since the focus is so solidly on the chicken, who cares? Very, very good chicken.

The best fried chicken in town..... I was impressed. The livers and gizzards are the best part of it.\r\nHowever don't expect fancy it is a litltle take out food place with no tables and very long lines.

Sure, it is not in a so great location, sure it is really small and cramped, sure the parking sometimes is not so desirable..but let me tell you...the food here is the best!!!....my only complaint..is they need to have one closer to the Pineville N.C. area...

This place consistenly ranks as the most popular fried chicken place in Charlotte, and I can see why. The meat is very moist, the skin and crust are crispy. Overall, the chicken is good from a technical perspective. But what it lacks is spice. There's no flavor! The problem is, I haven't been anywhere in Charlotte that has fried chicken with flavor! If anyone knows a place that has spice, please let everyone know. It's the best in Charlotte, but if you've had fried chicken outside of Charlotte, you'll know what I mean.

Price's has been a fixture for Charlotte's in the know for great food for years and it looks like the rest of the world has finally discovered this gem. I heard them reviewed on the ""Road Food"" section of NPR's ""Spledid Table"".\r\n\r\nWhen you visit Charlotte and you want to see part of the real ""Southern"" character of Charlotte you really have to find Price's. It definately isn't fancy, but the food is great and you will see a true cross section of Charlotte there from ""Beggars to Businessmen"".

This place is a greasy little dump of a restaurant, but THE BEST Charlotte has to offer. If you think I am kidding, just try and park within 2 blocks of the place during the week. This is the BEST bird in the Queen City! Make you wanna burn down a KFC!

Price's is a long-standing establishment in the area and with good reason. Their food is to die for. The chicken is fried to perfection (as we southerners like it) and the hushpuppies are awesome. Although, the lines at the lunch hour may look hideous, the staff is actually very fast and accurate, along with being friendly. You are in and out in a couple of minutes. I make it a point to go here whenever I'm in town.
