    Food was good but service was exceptionally slow. I felt sorry because they were understaffed but I wouldn’t go unless you have time for a leisurely meal. We were trying to make a show with 1.5 hours to spare and we had to take our food to go.

    Do yourself a favor and skip this place and go to Myrtle’s instead. The food was sub par, the ambiance is sub par, their beer list is trash and their service was terrible.

    Food was good but not as flavorful as one would think based on the name. Service was a bit lacking. Staff seemed very detached and not very personable.

    I really hate to see how this place has gone down hill. The menu is completely changing, including the drinks. The food was not as good as it was a month ago and we were the only ones in the place. Hopefully they will rebound and be a great place again.

    Showed up to eat and they were closed for renovations. I cannot believe a business would allow you to make a reservation when they were closed. Had to scramble to eat somewhere before going to a concert due to their negligence. Unforgivable!

    They quickly accommodated 15 of us including a wheelchair by rearranging tables which made the whole experience amazing. The server, who is retired from insurance, was awesome and provided wonderful service. The food was so tasty! I would highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Overall a good experience, the menu is a little limited, but understandable in todays times. We tried most things on the menu, the chicken and waffles was a hit. I had the hot chicken sandwich, and it was as good as advertised. The drinks were also well prepared…. Unfortunately we heard the location is moving from a hot chicken joint to a Harvest (farm to fork) restaurant, which is not our favorite place in Knox. Oh well… there is always Gus’s Hot Chicken when in the mood 😃

    I get it’s a bar but it was wildly overpriced bar food. The staff and kitchen can’t keep up with service on a Friday night. Something you’d expect from a bar. They were polite about it, but it’s not what I’d call a comfortable comfort food experience.

    The food was excellent and the ambiance was very laid back. Our server was friendly and brought us everything we needed. I wasn't crazy about the bread being under the chicken, my personal preference would have been to have it be on the side/toasted. Overall, very enjoyable and we had lots of leftovers which were just as delicious. I put the leftover bacon pieces in the mac and cheese and it was SO good!

    Everything was pretty good for a date. Service was slow but they was very busy and messed up by charging me another tables bill onto my card that was a lot of money. They did fix very quickly so overall a decent experience.

    We loved Wicked Chicken! We visited Knoxville for parents’ weekend and this was our favorite place! The food was fantastic, the service was great and everyone was so friendly. The manager said they were also working on taking the students’ dining dollars as payment too! We will definitely eat there again when we return to Knoxville!

    The chicken soft and greasy, as if it was placed in the grease prematurely and sat. It didn’t hold the breading very well. The Hot Chicken deviled eggs were nice.

    Decent place. Food was tasty. Was really disappointed that they were out of wings for the entire weekend though on a Saturday before the dinner rush started. That's what we were looking forward to. Greens were way too vinegary, couldn't eat them. Fries were great and the fried pickles we got were good too. Nice and thick cut. The comeback sauce was great! Good size portions too. Service was friendly but food was very, very slow to come out (only 1 other group in the dining room). The others around us who came after us were almost done with their food before we got ours. Overall, good but would have been better with quicker food coming out and having had the wings we wanted.
