Best chicken I've had in my life, and I've had a lot of chicken. Staff were amazing. My puppy knocked over my lunch from the waitress' hand and she brought me another! I was so embarrassed and she was so lovely. I'm sorry for the hassle and the mess but I will be back. I need more of that chicken and awesome service in my life. Thanks team!
