This is real Southern Fried Chicken! A great place to take visitors from other parts of the country who want a traditional southern meal. It is old school Charlotte and has been serving at its current location for many years where people of all ethnic and racial backgrounds have always been welcome.

Wow! I ordered wings, pups and fish sandwich. I'm not sure which was better after tasting. The wings are lightly breaded and the meat is tender & juicy. The fish was also flaky and breaded to perfection. The tartar sauce was great! This place is iconic and I see why!

I have to admit: I am a sucker for fried chicken. Since I'm in North Carolina to visit (future) family, eat as the Southerners do. As we drove through downtown Charlotte, I noticed a long line of people spilling out of Price's Chicken Coop and decided to give it a try. The waiting room was packed with African-Americans and Rednecks! This had to be one good fried chicken joint! As I was waiting in line, there was a Redneck who looked like he could pass as GLEE's Beck Jackson's brother talking to himself how "damn good" the fried chicken was here at Cooper's. When I told him I was from CA, he immediately said that KFC sucks and that the Chicken Coop made absolutely the best fried chicken ever because of their secret sauce; that was why he's come here already over two-dozen times!!! This man here is a true fan!

We ordered the whole dark meat chicken (4 drumsticks & 4 thighs), and the fish sandwich with tartar sauce. The sandwich was OK - nothing special... but the chicken... now, that was something!! Admittedly, it tasted similar to KFC's classic fried chicken, but less greasy and fried. Super tasty, although a bit too salty... but then again, it's fried chicken! If you're into fried chicken, this is the place for you, evidenced by the endless line!

Ordering was quick. Food tasted great!. Drawback: it's a take-out place only, so there's nowhere to sit and eat greasy fried chicken, which can be quite messy. Most people eat in their car. Otherwise, this place was the bomb! Drink lots of water, though, because the salt will make you very thirsty. This Californian certainly enjoyed this North Carolina classic and will definitely come back for more next time!
