Okay, here's the deal: you're down South, hungry, and looking for something to eat. And you're not just looking for generic sustenance; you want to taste some flavor of the South. You can get dressed up find some gourmet Southern restaurant where the portions are small and the prices are high, or you can bypass all the fancy dap and just feed the hunger for good food. Let's do away with the banter and get to the point. The best Southern fried chicken in the world is found right here in Charlotte, North Carolina. Price's Chicken Coup gives you large portions, good prices, and delicious food. This is one of those hidden gems that only the locals know about, and trust me when I say that it's not only a city haunt but a regional one as well. I live 45 minutes from the city, and when I want great chicken, I go to Price's. The food is great and the people are friendly, not only the wait staff at the counter but the cornucopia of people dining, from uptown three-piece suits on their lunch break to Sunday afternoon families eating after church. The average cost for a dinner is $5.
Listen, if you want to feed the desire for soft music and small portions, cruise uptown. If you wanna get fed and have a entirely satisfying experience, go to Price's Chicken Coup. You won't be sorry!! Fast, fun, fabulous!
