Foursquare Tips

  • "Half Dark, Mild Sauce, Fried Hard" is actually the 11th Commandment given to Moses from God, but the bastard didn't share this knowledge with anyone else...
  • The chicken is half-fried, then completed when ordered, to ensure you don't wait too long. If you order it with any sauce, the chicken will come doused and is accompanied with fries, and cole slaw.
  • Call ahead and from Monday through Thursday, they have lunch specials.
  • 1/2 Mix Chicken Dinner: Harold's chicken is tossed with seasoned flour, which comes out shatteringly crisp and blessedly ungreasy, with meat that's wonderfully moist.
  • People are willing to get a ticket just to get food here.
  • Chicken? That's what Popeyes is for, I come for the perch bucket and you should to!
  • 6 wings salt & pepper w/mild sauce!
  • finally!!!
  • Hell yah I'm all about this fried chicken. Cooked to crispy and tender perfection. Hot sauce is sour/hot!
  • Call ahead or go to the arcade across the street for a pint.
  • I love the catfish dinner!
  • Fried chicken was good - I'd order ahead if you don't wanna wait 20 minutes to get your order (since they fry it after you order)
  • 6pc wings with mild sauce, salt & pepper! Ask them to sauce those fries up. ..yummy :-)
  • Not a lot of places to sit
  • Harold's never fails! Good as always!
  • try the Fried Perch (fish)!
  • I always order extra sauce.
  • Best fried chicken!!! Get anything with the wings!! And dont be shy with the hot sauce (not really that hot)
  • Does not take American Express though foursquare says they do
  • My favorite Chicken in the world! Order it with the sauce on the Chicken.
