REVIEWS OF Big Shakes Hot Chicken And Fish IN Alabama

I love the fried chicken here. Everything was delicious but the only thing I didn't like was the amount of grease spewing out of the chicken with every bite I took. Apart from that, great place to take the family to and have the best fried chicken.

Adam Cooper

I had heard a lot of great things about their Shrimp burger. It is a bit of a drive, so a co worker and I placed our order online for pickup. He spent his whole lunch break driving there and back, only to be told “we are out of those”. I understand people get busy, but this order was at 2:30 in the afternoon. They didn’t have the courtesy to make a 15 second phone call or send an email letting us know they couldn’t fill our order. No lunch for us today :(

Jeff Cook

Amazing! Food was excellent with large portions at reasonable prices. Has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Definitely going back.

Nate Carr

Food is always hot and delicious. Make sure you pick the level of heat you can handle. Fried chicken, catfish, greens, and seasoned fries are the BEST EVER!

Big D's Shade Tree

Great chicken and fish. We had the chicken tenders plate with fries and a white fish plate with turnip greens. Everything was great. The young lady who waited on us was a sweetheart! I wish I remembered her name. We will be back. They were playing great music as well.

Keosha Young

The best playlist I've ever heard in a restaurant. The food was good too.

Dan Gipson

Arrived about 12:55 were told there out of breast it would be a 20 min. Wait we said ok only have an hour for lunch about 1:30 they said it would be another 20 min they offered tenders they should have offered the first time . Food was good. not a great first-time experience!!

Amanda Reed

Great food. Wish they had regular mayo though.

L L

Really great southern food, and friendly, helpful staff.

Gary Counts

Oh man! You gotta try this place! Get there early cause the line can get long and the parking lot fills up cause this is the real deal. Seriously good chicken and fish. The sides are good portion and won't disappoint!

Joe Crowhurst

Great good, good music, fantastic staff!

Michael Hodnett

Catfish is better than the chicken. Chicken breast was cooked till there was no moisture in the meet at all.

Samuel Dollar

This is the best chicken available anywhere in town. I know it's a hot chicken place, but their mild chicken (Crybaby level of spice) is easily manageable for anyone. I'm pretty ok with handling spicy foods generally, but their first level (Stop Drop & Roll) is about perfect for me. I'm looking forward to checking out the next level soon. I've also tried sides and catfish. Everything is pretty good, but the chicken is definitely the star for me.

Lucas Johnson

Great food and service. The lunch lines are long but move fast. Just a great place to eat.

Benjamin Pierce

Nightmare experience. I placed my order sat down and waited over 38 minutes. I see people that came in way after me then place their order and sat down to eat. I decide to go check on my order and the person walks to the back with my ticket and then the manager comes out to tell me that they are just now dropping the order. At that point I have no desire to wait any longer bc my order had just simple been forgotten about. I asked for my money back and left.

Nicholas Jones

Great service great service good food

Matt Davies

Great chicken! Very spicy!

Jedidiah Steele

Amazing food!! Must try best place in town!!

Timothy M. Shin

Cool and tasty place

Kelli Pelich

Amazing fresh food, stellar service. The employees are super friendly. I'll definitely be back!

Becka Lang

Very good! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I asked for extra pickles and did not get extra pickles.

Lisa W

I had the catfish sandwich. It was nice, spicy, and fresh. Great place. Wish they had mayonnaise. Just sayin.

Lillian R.

Food taste great, nice atmosphere and plenty of parking. Wish I had a coupon though!

Mitzi Mullins

Really nice place. Food was delicious. Watching the tvs made it kind of like a sports bar feeling but a family environment. Pics on the walls astounding!!

Tina Butts

Food was good and hot. I got the Cry Baby wings and Catfish which had a little kick to it. Food and service were both great! Mac and Cheese was also really good.

Jon Cannon

Great Food and Great Service. Drove from Muscle Shoals and was not disappointed at all. Will definitely be back soon....ASAP!!!!!

Cody Gothart

Seriously some of the best chicken I've ever had. Get the Stop Drop and Roll heat level, it was perfect.

Mary Dailey

My coworker and I placed orders on line. When we got there to pick it up, we discovered they had not cooked her food. Because her food was late, my food got cold. No one apologized. One young guy tried to rush it along. He went back to the kitchen to check on it several times. This was my first experience at Big Shakes. When I got back to the office, I tried to eat it cold but I ended up throwing most of it away. I didn't think to ask them to redo my order. I can tell it would've been a great meal. Cold fries, fish and chicken are just not the same. BIG SHAKES, please don't let a good thing go bad.

Nathaniel Chong

Great fried wings and chicken here. Could be hotter though

Randall Case

Great food, but a bit of a wait. Well worth it though.

Brian Pouliot

A taste of Nashville. It's awesome that we have "Hot Chicken" right here in Huntsville! If you haven't tried it, you should definitely check it out! I love spicy stuff, and the Rambo isn't that hot to me. But it's very flavorful. They have more mild options as well.

donna thrower

The food speaks for itself! Highly recommend stopping in for a delicious meal.

William Musser

Really good food! Had shrimp burger and tenders with their hottest sauce. I eat spicy food all the time. This was right on the edge of my tolerance level. Will likely drop down to Rambo next time

LaTonya Williams

The food was great. The customer service is another story. When you come in there is a register that says "Call-in Orders" and another register at the end of the counter. There was about 6 people in the call-in line and a couple at the other register. I didn't call in so I got behind the couple. After about 5 minutes of watching workers dance and turn around and look at is, I finally asked is this where we order. A girl says yes but they are taking orders on the other end.

Derek Mitchell

They have a very interesting and unique menu with a lot of flexibility in heat levels. There's something for everyone whether you're a mild eater or a tastebud firefighter. The place has been featured on a number of TV food shows and has a signature style. My only small gripe is that it can be a bit pricey, but you're paying for quality! I definitely plan to go back in the future!

Tanya Haithcock

The food here surpassed my expectations! The chicken was flavorful, moist, and super crispy! The catfish was a tad salty for MY tastes, but I don't really like salt. My husband LOVED it and he's very particular about catfish. The turnip greens were ON POINT. The service was friendly and prompt. And, best for last, the fried oreos are absolutely worth the extra calories!

Eric Rivera

Careful with the executioner. I have tried it a few times, and I have to say, if you can't handle hot, then don't even try, especially on the fish! Other than that, this place is packed with friendly employees, and serves great dishes!

Cory J. Shiverdecker

In a single word, fantastic! Do yourself a favor and stop in the next time you're in the area. You will not be disappointed.

Legacy Health Chiropractic

Amazing food and great service! We have tried the chicken sandwich, whole wings, and just about all the sides. Everything is seasoned to perfection and freshly prepared!

Faith Nugent

Went here for the first time tonight with my family. Got the chicken and waffles and OMG I am in love

Steve P.

The food is good, but if you have a call in order you have to wait in the "dine in" line which is usually full to the door. Even though there is a line for "Call in Orders" it's never operated like that. If it's open, they use like another register for the "Dine In" line.

lathain morton

The food is delicious, the portions are huge, and the vibes are good. Go check it out.

Elizabeth Henson

Even packed on a Friday at noon, the food came out relatively quickly, fresh and hot. Ordering anything not standard (like no fries) is apparently unusual and they aren't sure how to handle it. Caused a massive delay at the register and then the order came with fries anyway... LOL. A nice little find in an area where there aren't many other options.

Trista Malone

Delicious as always with Great Music

RJ Burkey

Maybe a little bit of a weight during lunch but it is definitely worth it.

Michael Ryan

The Shrimp burger, is amazing. Who knew you could make a burger with shrimp.

Dave K

Good food, good service. A little disappointed by the shrimp patty, but not bad by any stretch. If you like Nashville hot chicken, this is the place to get it in Huntsville.

Bryan Gorham

Outstanding chicken and generous portions to coincide with the slightly higher prices. I do wish the shakes were BIG like the name implies but that's easily overcome by their outstanding food quality. Did I mention how great the spicy chicken was!? Stop in for a meal, you will not be sorry!

Erica Congress

Food is delicious and there was a live performance ❤

Bradley Long

Saw this chicken on the food Network. Beat Bobby Flay. Then we started seeing commercials for Big Shakes. Had to have it !!! So glad we did

Nathan Robinson

Great food with awesome music

Donald Pack

Better get here early...busy little place

gary jordan

Got the hot fish and chicken combo with slaw and seasoned fried. Food was good, but service was a bit slow. It became apparent that our orders had gotten lost. Overall, a positive experience. Will go again.

Chris Webb

The food was great and the atmosphere was lit!

Derek Meyer

Listen, there are two things to discuss here... 1) the hot mess chicken sandwich is one of the best things you can spend your money on in Huntsville 2) that playlist is always on point

ashcan 1979

Pretty good food . Little pricey but all in all a good stop for food Music is great too

Chris Hewitt

Leg n thigh combo w 2 sides more food than I could finish. Cooked to perfection

Sherry Hamilton

We celebrated a family birthday here. The food is delicious!! When you want fried food, it's amazing.

Benjamin Browning

I honestly cannot express how much I love this chicken. I got the chicken tenders and they were to die for. Not only was it delicious it was also a good price.the only bad thing I can say is that the heat levels are a little wonky, like the same heat level might be much hotter or less hot the next time you visit.

Jackson K

This was a hard one for me to give 4 stars instead of 5, but I decided to due to the pricing here. I ended up getting the chicken sandwich which comes with two tenders on a bun and fries. My ticket was $13 after tax and 10% tip. Was it good? Absolutely Worth $13? Nah. I would have paid $8, maybe $9. I can go to an actual sit down restaurant and order a more elegant meal than chicken fingers and fries for $13. Unfortunately, the cost of this place is what's gonna keep me from ever coming back, which is a shame as it's a good eatery. It's just not worth the asking price.

Yvette Torbert

The food and customer service are ALWAYS excellent. The restaurant is ALWAYS clean and welcoming. However, today I took a guest, my elderly aunt, who also happens to be diabetic. It took our food A LONG time, which was attributed to technical difficulties. I think it was a very bad first impression until the food came. I REALLY could not complain either because a very kind man paid our bill, which was AWESOME! Of course, I will be back soon.

Adam Howard

The food here is amazing! The staff is friendly and there is always some great music playing providing a fun atmosphere.

Tim Lowe

Food was good, atmosphere is good....line waiting to order Friday lunch = beyond ridiculous wait to order is the real negative.

Heath Skelton

The hottest chicken is incredibly hot but it's so good. Really the only place that I know of to get actually hot chicken in Huntsville, and it's definitely worth a visit. I haven't had their non-hot chicken or the catfish but judging from the quality of what I have had, I imagine they are great as well.

Thomas Sawicki

Went in for lunch, ordered a sandwich and tenders to go. Took about 20 minutes and people who ordered after me all got their meals before me. I had to ask where mine were, and ten minutes later i had my food. The place wasn't too busy either, but i didn't make a fuss because of all the great reviews and i was excited to try. The customer service was great, however i had to eat my sandwich with a fork and knife because there was only one part of the bun in the box (the top one). The chicken was good, fries way too seasoned and salty for my liking. When i opened the tenders box, there was no tenders, but 3 full wings, ate them instead (my fault for not checking my order) but didn't thing the flavor (rambo) was that good. overall i think i may have had a different experience if i had dined in, but i wont be getting to go again. It almost seems like they are too busy for their own good and it takes a way from the quality control of items going out. Location was Martin road outside redstone arsenal

Bob Finnegan

If You like Spicy, They Have Spicy Chicken. Great Flavor and Service, it can get really busy around Lunchtime, so allow some extra time.

John Seller

Great chicken. Mediocre sides. Spotty service. Zero upkeep. I've been three times over the course of a few months. The drink machine has been out of order on multiple drinks during the entire time. Twice, my order was forgotten completely (as evidenced by everyone at our table getting their order and not me). Card reader was broken once. Macaroni and beans were undercooked. If this place didn't have juicy, tasty chicken, it would be worse than fast food. Apparently Big Shake is in it for the concept, not the execution.

Marcus Brock

Made my first trip to Big Shakes today for lunch. I had the jumbo chicken strip platter. The chicken strips we're great. They were huge and moist. The Stop Drop 'n Roll seasoning was just the right amount of heat for me. I had beans for the side. The beans were good too. The dining area was nice, the staff was very friendly, and the service was quick. I will be going back.

April Stevenson

Food was extremely well seasoned and the place was clean.

Eric Perkins

I love big shakes food, but this may be the last time I order from them. The service is horrendous. This is the third time in a row I've ordered online or call in, arrived at my estimated pick up time then sat for 30 minutes. It's absolutely ridiculous and though the food is good, it's not worth the hassle. Hope I make it home with my food sometime tonight.

The Cowboy Way

You’ve got to try the BBQ Shrimp Burger, it is off the chain. The patty is actual shrimp

Keith Clay

Best chicken I have ever had! Better than prince's hot chicken in Nashville and better than Hattie b's in birmingham.

Danielle Ford

The food is freshly made to order and absolutely Delicious!!!!! I had the whitefish plate with a side of northern beans. It was sooo good! My children had the chicken and waffles and they enjoyed their food also! We also had the fried Oreos and it is out of this world!!!! We for sure will be going back. I can't wait to try the other items on the menu!

Bryan Barley

The meats are very good! The sides are a little over-salted for my liking. Ordering service is always great, but the table and floor cleanup service is not good. Couldn't sit at any open table because they were all dirty with trays and food on them.

Melissa Brister

Had the Big Shake Combo and everything was delicious! The place was Very clean and decor was so cool. The food is the thing.....the Best chicken and fish I think I've ever eaten! Also Loved the slaw and beans. Staff was super nice and helpful! Can't wait til we go back.

K Wynn

The food is good! I personally don't like the take out packaging because while the chicken is very hot in temperature it causes the fries and bread to become very moist and soggy. It is best to call in your order if you aren't going to be able to dine in.

Lamb Chop

This place was great. I went for lunch on a Monday, no crowd good service great food. I had the wings,white beans (a must try) turnip greens c+ and Coleslaw, wife had the catfish and mac daughter had the tenders I had the first spice kick they offer which was plenty any more would just be novelty (for kicks)...I'm from Michigan and also work in a soul food restaurant. Great place to try if ur in town.

melisa smith

I chose “one star” because there is no zero star. We can’t rate what we never got served. We were here during the lunch rush stood in line for 20 min, and then sat for 30min watching as the restaurant cleared out and cleanup began. WE NEVER. GOT OUR ORDER. And there was NO concern to that when we asked for a full refund. IMMENSELY DISAPPOINTED. Have eaten at Big Shakes in TN and were pleased but we won’t be back to this location.

The Clarkfather

All I gotta say is get there before the lunch crowd! The food is incredible and made to order, so it is very fresh. This is not a place you go to when you are in a hurry, however. If you have an hour and half to two hours to kill, take a trip to Big Shakes for lunch or dinner. I get their buffalo tenders and wow it is amazing. The staff are friendly and the food is great. What else can a guy ask for?

Al Campbell

It's decent but it's not anything close to Nashville Hot Chicken. It's just fried chicken with a little kick. Takes a while to get the food but it's fresh when you do. Try it if you're curious and nearby. But don't go out of your way for it.

Jimmie J

Even if I tried I couldn't find a reason to rate lower than 5 stars this was some good chicken and fish worth the $14

Danielle Carlson

Delicious! I highly recommend the food here. Each time I have come the service has been great and the food has been awesome as well.

Tameka Goode

Great atmosphere, food and music...will definitely return!

Donnette Putman

The chicken was good. Unfortunately we hit them 30 min before closing but they were very nice to us anyway.

Eyes of Bucket

Really good. Very filling. Fried Oreos are the best

Mike Bryant

Great food. Outside of chicken; the white beans and greens rick. 1st time, but not last time.

Aaron Robinson

The best chicken in town! ( Sometimes ) I really really love their chicken, and if you go for lunch, you will likely get great chicken. But anytime I have gone there for dinner, the chicken tastes old and dried out, and the fries are stale. This has consistently been my experience, and is why I changed this review from 5 stars to 3. P.S. they short you sauces on to-go orders EVERYTIME!

Terry Baird

Long line at lunchtime but worth the wait

Kim Patterson

Great food, atmosphere and the live music entertainment was great, also live the old school music playing when bands aren't

Meeka Acklin

This place was recommended & it was well worth the drive. Hot, delicious food. Fast friendly service. Clean & awesome music. Definitely will be coming again

Brad G

Took over 35 mins for ONE chicken sandwich. They were not even that busy. I saw my order sit in the window for 15 mins before I had to speak up and ask. The food was cold by the time I got it. The staff was just unconcerned and unmotivated to make any customers happy. Just lazy and slow acting. It's not worth the drive over in that area for the horrible service you receive. Until they fix this, I will not be back and tell everyone to skip this place. Hard to tell if the food was good since it was cold by the time I got it.

Daniel Beckham

Went last Wed night to try it out. We got there about 25min to close (We didn’t realize it until after we ordered, and I didn’t think to make sure a restaurant was open past 8pm. I guess they close early out in the boondocks?) It took just under 30 minutes for our food to be done, while we watched a *lot* of to go orders placed after us go out the door one after the other. We waited 30 minutes for two plates of chicken tenders. Chicken tenders. Was the food good? Yes. I would normally never have gone in so close to closing, so I’ll try again and update the rating if it’s worth going back.

Ericka Kelley

Great hot chicken! Be prepared for the heat if you get the hottest available!

Charles Harris, III

Best food, atmosphere & the owners are SUUUPPER COOL!

Angela Mcginnis

The couple that was singing here tonight were great!! Food was amazing as usual.

tprtnt

Chicken and waffles were wonderful! Go other then peak time if you can.

William Klingbeil

The Stop Drop and Roll level of heat on the chicken fingers was bland the first time I went, but today it had a slight hint of spice that made for very good flavor. It gets super busy at lunch time though so get there early!

Gigi Ton

The quantity of food was great, it was cooked a little to long. I've waited a while to go, was happy to be there. But u this k the food was cooked a little to long, especially the fish...let me add, the young ladies were very professional, as a matter of fact, I live around the block from one. Sweet ladies,, professional service... 5 stars

Sean Busick

This is your place for authentic Nashville style hot chicken in Huntsville, Alabama. The chicken is delicious and offered in several different degrees of heat, from mild to hot-enough-to-make-you-cry. They have good, traditional Southern side dishes. The macaroni and cheese is worth a try.

Nghia Huynh

Really love the environment of this joint as there's big screen TVs showing live sporting events. The staff is friendly and the menu is simple to order from especially if it's your first time. The wings here were phenomenal and lives up to the hype of being the proclaimed best chicken in America. I love this place and will be visiting here routinely!

Joseph Centanni

"Catfish" leaves much to be desired. Yea...its hot. That is something. Gave it a second try; thinking that maybe I just had a bad day for catfish. Service leaves much to be desired; food is not great. I guess some folks find this to be good catfish...but I cant say the same. Heat doesn't equal flavor.

Shaun Heath

Good food and vibe. Chicken is amazing whether it is in a sandwich or salad!

Jennifer

Great little hidden gem! The first day my family went they had live music from a local artist Aaron Bradley, which in itself was a wonderful treat! Now to the food, it was wonderful as well, we had ordered the family deal of chicken fingers and it was plenty to feed the four of us (2 adults &2 teens) the sides were great, best mac n cheese I've tasted besides my own... was not mushy like most places and they asked if I minded to wait on the fresh to be done for a few minutes instead of them just rushing and throwing old mac on the side, great attitudes all employees seemed to work together and present themselves well so it really gave off good vibes and positive attitudes. Loved this place, also chicken and waffles were amazing, my daughter and myself just had to try AMAZING!!!!

Steven Lim

Awesome Nashville chicken. Would come again for sure

Terry Winston

Got the originally catfish sandwich. It was alright, maybe should of got a seasoned piece. Tasted plain. Mac n cheese was good.

Melody Leclair

Delicious food, fast friendly service. Family oriented.

morimura 501

Food is amazing but order online. Or have time on your hands. They get slammed fast and it doesn't let up.

Craig Dailey

The food is delicious as always, but I was a little disappointed that I had a text with a coupon for 10% off that didn't work when I placed the online order, they don't take phone orders and they wouldn't honor the special when I arrived to pick up my food. But it all tasted good, just a bit dissatisfied as a loyal patron that they wouldn't honor their coupon.

David Light

Awesome food, value and service!

Judson Brooks

I do a ton of deliveries for them thru Doordash and they are always busy. (Do wish they could be faster having DD orders ready) Anyways, i finally got to try them myself today. My mom got the chicken salad, medium heat. It was huge with alot of chicken. Enough for 2 people to share. I got the hot mess chicken sandwich. Being that I get heartburn and acid reflux I got crybaby heat. Just enough heat for me to enjoy without dying. I did get the ghost pepper mayo on the side and glad I did because a small tab on my finger to taste lit me up! Mac and cheese was seasoned well with pepper which is rare to find these days. I enjoyed it. Price was fair to me for the portion size and quality. I recommend ordering online and pay in store. They usually have a line. Their online pay system is a pain.

Nichole Alred

The chicken finger plate had a LOT of grease on the plate! A LOT. No biggie, I just moved the chicken out of the grease and ate it. I did, however, feel it was an excessive amount of oil. I give this place 5 stars be because the people are SO nice here, my chicken, greens & Mac and cheese were AH-MAZ-ING and the 2 yr olds catfish was even more amazing!! The establishment was very clean! The restrooms we're clean and has a changing station for little ones in there. This was my first time eating here and I not only recommend it but will be back!!!!

George Freas II

Very busy on weekdays at lunch for a reason. It is good food. Best to call ahead for carry out.

Bee J

The food is good I love the greens but the online order service needs work. It gives you an option to track orders but it does not work. Hence the reason for the 4 stars.

Gareth Scott

I've lived close to Big Shakes for two years and I deeply regret that this was my first time visiting this outstanding restaraunt. Hands down, this is the best chicken I have had in Alabama. The catfish puts every grill event I've been to in the south to shame. The staff was very polite and my order took less than 5-8 minutes to reach the table.

anias riley

It was a great experience, try the carrot cake it is amazing

Jeffrey McClendon

I've eaten here before, it was okay (average, nothing great)... had Rambo style fish, it was tame, not hot at all. I love spicy food. Got executioner (only one level hotter) fish this time, it is almost inedible it is so hot... container was torn leaked in bag... top wasn't on slaw it was leaking... employees disinterested... not a good experience.

Patrick Walker

I had the whole wings and whiting fish combo with the executioner level hot, the hottest level they have. Despite the heat and not taking a sip of milk, the wings and fish was pretty good. The turnips are also good and had a slight kick of spice too. Above all, the music combined with the speakers they are played on are what makes me love this restaurant. You'll feel the bass and if you're not nodding your head, tapping your foot, or singing along to the music, you're not getting the most out of this experience.

Brandon Patterson

We drove out from Madison to this location and the food was absolutely amazing! Excellent food flavor and this place certainly has its own special touch to each combo. The #4 sampler was a ton of food and it was out at our table shortly after we ordered! Thank you all so much!

Trent Griffin

Delicious fried fish , chicken ...and unique shrimp burgers spiced to taste... Be were of the Executioner level heat...it will set your mouth on fire... All the other levels are delicious and mild. You must try the southern beans at least once... Seasoned to perfection.

Gean Johnson

Very nice staff. It was after the lunch rush so things were a little slow. I got the Level 3 quarter chicken platter. It was very tasty. This was my first time to visit. I'll be back.

Joe Staton

Always great. Recently survived the Executioner. Yeah, dont need that again soon. Saturday, had the kid's meal. One tender and a side. PERFECT amount of food, well prepared. Right sized lunch!

Jacob Hartzer

Great hot chicken. I missed getting this, so I'm glad they have opened. Friendly atmosphere, but know it'll be packed for Friday lunch!

William Penn

Best chicken in Huntsville. Most meaty chicken wings I have ever had that were full of flavor. Coleslaw is very good and so is the mac and cheese. The greens were very flavorful too. A bit out of the way but it's worth the drive. Music can be a little loud at times. Service is fast. Get you napkins before you sit down too the t are not at your table. . Also, I'm at the Crybaby heat tolerance level. It'll make sense if you go. Chicken as good as Hattie B's in Nashville.

Rich Sawyer

Chicken was great, sauce tasty! Big portion for the money.

Kiera Carson

Great food and service !! Def will be back again!

Stephen Mayfield

Nashville hot, delicious...nuff said!

Nena Dillard

Great staff..music and food! Restaurant was very clean! Will revisit soon!

Troy Hester

Food was fantastic and the staff was friendly. We actually liked the catfish and the shrimp burger better than the chicken! There was a long line and only one order station. (It was lunch-crowd time; thinned out by the time we left.) The motown music choices were fun but the bass was too pronounced for a restaurant. Maybe OK for a bar.

Daniel Norman

Great place for some southern fried Chicken, buy disappointed there were no shakes just kidding it a awesome place to grub.

Shequila Massey

Everything was good except tha Mac and

Tessa Dixon

Customer service was nice but I ordered White fish and it was over cooked.

Cori Daly

The ONLY hot chicken worth eating in Huntsville. Great flavors, size of tenders, fries, mac n cheese, fried Oreos, bone-in chicken, ANNNND waffles! Quick, friendliest staff you will ever find. Everyone there is happy to help & serve. Family friendly & Thursday is $1 kids meals. Can't beat it! We do every family birthday meal here now :)

Chris Heath

I try to take photos of food when we go places for reviews but we were hungry. It was so good I ate the whole thing before realizing I never took a single photo. Seriously recommend this place though do be careful on heat levels though as they get very spicy very quickly.

Ashley Snodgrass

The white beans are phenomenal! Every time I come here I order whiting fish and beans. Today I ordered a family meal for myself, my two toddlers and my uncle. Order# 53WQ. $39 for 10 pieces of whiting, 4 tenders, fries, and 2 pint size beans, since I was told they didnt have turnip greens left. Great deal, however, I got Mac and cheese instead of 2 orders of beans. When I bit into the whiting, it was extremely hard so I thought it was catfish or some other fish that I don't eat. Moreover, it was curled up like catfish or as if it was over cooked which would explain why it was so hard. I called in and spoke with a nice gentleman who offered a refund or to replace the fish. I support this business so I declined the refund, although I live 14 miles away, I opted to come back in to pick up the correct sides and fish. The guy told me to keep the food, I didn't have to bring it back, but I did anyway to show that I didn't eat the Mac and cheese or the fish, besides the one bite I took of course. When I got there the same young man assisted me. Since I had the bag in hand he asked to see the fish and assured me that it was whiting. At this point I'm wondering why it tasted so tough/hard, thinking this CAN'T be whiting. Also, I see a fish plate with a side order of turnips being taken to a table. I assume they made more since I was told an hour prior that they had none. Nevertheless I politely asked if I could at least get the right side (beans). When he brought the beans back, I am too passive to ask them to replace it because of the way it tastes (hard) so I settled and asked if it could be dropped again because an hour or so had passed and I had not eaten, it was cold by that time. He told me he could not do that and didn't offer to remake it either. I am aware of the fact that I was mistaken about it not being whiting, however the fish was extremely hard. My daughters and I didn't eat it, neither did my uncle because it was that bad. I've never gotten fish of this quality from Shakes before. I am disappointed in how this ended. It was a total inconvenience and a waste of $40. I ordered this food at 5:53, I just got home at 8:00 from Shakes. My daughters are just now getting a chance to eat their chicken strips, but they were looking forward to a piece of fish just like I was. My 5 year old daughter just picked up a piece of fish and said "Mommy this is really really hard!" I wish I would have driven closer, saved some money, and eaten what I paid for.

Amazing chicken! Highly suggest going here and checking it out.

It's a slow heat. Be very careful when giving the right dish to the wife and kids, heh. The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is always friendly. We've brought several friends and family over and everyone has always left satisfied and happy. It's one of our favorites

Out of shrimp. Out of cookies. Out of mac and cheese. Guess they only stock this on certain days of the week. Last time I came here, they were out of the shrimp burger for 4 months straight. I'm done with this restaurant.

Fabian Klamer

Fantastic! Some of the best chicken in Huntsville. Highly recommend

Eleanor McCrary

Delicious food in a laid back atmosphere with friendly customer service.

Everything was HOT and tasted AMAZING, friendly staff. Worth trying folks

Shane Goodwin

This place is always delicious! I recommend the combo platter for the best of both worlds (chicken and fish!) The Mac n cheese is to die for.

Kayla Johnson

Best fried chicken and fried oreos

Valerie Dunn

Bad first impression. First time visiting and they forgot to make our order. Quite a few people received their food before my family and when I asked, the cashier had to reprint my order and then they made it. Update: I received a refund and received the food which was delicious. I will try again to see if I have a better experience.

Fish and chicken was on point. Greens were a bit soupy but had potential to be good with more leaf less juice. Other than that great food and service.

Angelia Duncan

1st timer and I was not disappointed. The food was great and the service was good.

Jeramie Battle

Great food, fried only (if that's not a problem) great environment and clean definitely a plus. Will come back for more if that answers any questions. "Big Shakes Big Shakes!!!"

I’ve been in Huntsville for 5 years now and this is my first time here! Food was good fresh and fast! The service was extraordinary! The music really made the food more enjoyable! Nothing like good food and music! I’ll recommend this place ANY!

Similar to other reviews the store has a pretty awesome look. Very clean and modern. Store was pretty empty when I came. Associates on break, other employees on their phones etc. Went with a medium flavor oddly described as “oily” when I asked if the wing sauce was wet. Food took almost 40 min till a lady off her break came to me and asked what I was waiting for. She then went to the back and the food started to come out. The food was “oily” and the bread underneath was very unappealing to say the least. The flavor and smell was delicious though the wing was way too saturated with oil.

The food is great. The people working there are super nice. It's good hot chicken and seafood. If hot chicken isn't your thing, I recommend the shrimp burger and the mac and cheese! Their beans are good too!

Arden Boddie

I ordered the chicken sandwiches, and on the way home the smell was killing me. The sandwich is really good. One of the best chicken sandwiches I have had. I will be returning!

Theodore Church-Reeves

Was sent here based on a recommendation. They told me to try the hottest sauce. When the girl at the counter looked at me like I was crazy, I knew it was going to be great. Fantastic food and holy cow is the spicy one hot. If I lived close to this place I'd be here all the time!!

Kesha F. Snow

Very good food. Friday evening live music creates a great atmosphere! Definitely will be back.

Evelyn Loya

More like 10 ⭐️. Food is absolutely amazing. Love the Atmosphere here. Totally recommend! It gets crazy packed but I'd wait it out for some good chicken! Wish I had taken pictures of my food but I had finished

valerie bryson

We loved it was Awesome service and food

Andrew Fandre

Hot chicken is the thing to get, the executioner sauce is pound the table hot so go Rambo with a side of executioner. Shrimp burger was soso and you can see why shark tank didn't go for it.

Michael Kremer

Love everything I've tried here.

Jimmy Bryant

Loved it. Didn't take long to receive our food. The food and atmosphere was great.
