I been coming to around the clock chicken for almost 2 years now and I usually get the same thing. The 3 piece chicken and waffles, which has always been slapping when the original cook was there. But recently I’ve seen new staff and a new cook and the food has not been as good. I tried ordering just wings and instead of the large size chicken wings I was given a small box of wingets. It tasted as if they were either cooked in old grease or burnt. I was highly disappointed because I know what to usually expect. Along with the hours of operation times always changing and always being closed, I never know when to come. I really used to love this place now it’s becoming more and more difficult to support them.
We were running late and we needed to get some breakfast but it was almost lunch time so we decided to try this restaurant we order the Salmon and grits macaroni and cheese and chicken wings and French fries. My daughter took one look at the macaroni and decided she wasn’t eating that mind I tell you we haven’t eaten all morning the chicken wings sucks the grits tasted not too bad but you can still taste the burn in it, the fries was way too salty I felt disappointed the food was not on point we tried to eat it but despite being hungry we pack up what we couldn’t eat try and eat it when we got hungrier.
The food is great but they ran out of sweet potatoes at 12pm. The menu has good options. The fish and chicken was good and seasoned well. Now the menu prices are based on the sides stated on the menu item. If you went to pick your own sides you pay more. So the chicken and fish combo with fries is 11.99 but if you want a different side the price goes up based on the side or sides you want instead. For the fish dinner changing the sides it was only $1.00 to pick your own sides. Mac m cheese wasnt very cheesy I could taste more egg than cheese. Collard greens and fries were good. Chicken and fish was good flavorful like southern grandma.
I found this place by accident. It's a little hole in the wall tucked away from the main road but it's the best kept secret. I ordered the fish and chicken combo and an order of hush puppies (not seen here because they were too good to photograph!) The fish is Whiting so they're will be bones, but it doesn't take away from the flavor. I loved the flavor of the chicken, you can test a hint of lemon pepper or something that gives it that additional zest. I only gave four stars because I like my chicken to be fried hard and my chicken wasn't. It's not a deal breaker though. The place is clean and there are two bathrooms as well. My experience overall was pleasant.
Not a secret, but definitely a hidden gem. Fast service- Do not order delivery- go on and get yourself a big scoop of human connection with a side of delicious home style food. My new favorite breakfast place, just what the doctor ordered ;) Waffle- fluffy, flavorful, and melt in mouth Tenders- juicy, great batter, and big Mac n cheese- is there a six star rating?
