Fried Chicken Customer Review

When I went to J. Alexander’s, I had the crispy chicken platter, and it was so yummy. And that’s coming from a fried chicken connoisseur who loves Crown Fried Chicken and my own air fried chicken dishes. At J.’s, the honey mustard they serve for dipping is so good! It came with coleslaw and fries, so plenty of food. The service is amazing. Our drinks were always full, even before we finished the last. This is my fav place to go!
