Most delicious chicken and waffles i have ever had!!
The tenders were so good paired with the acidic and sweet pickles! Also I love how king of the coop makes their seasoning a little sweet and then hot!
Disclaimer: this review is entirely based off one menu item because it's so good that the 5-6 times I've been here I can't bring myself to order anything else. The three piece Nashville hot tenders with fries and an extra king sauce is incredible. The tenders are always huge so three pieces is perfect. The chicken is juicy and the breading is flavorful and crispy even after spending time in a box for take out. The Nashville hot seasoning has the perfect level of spicy that you have to take a drink every few bites but not hot enough to take away your taste, and itself is packed with flavor. Fries are always solid as a side. Under the chicken is a piece of plain white bread that soaks up all the juice, grease, and seasoning and is truly a hidden gem in the box. The pickles have a really unique light vinegar taste. Finally the king sauce just adds that extra kick for creaminess and zing that is perfect for both fries and chicken. I've thought about ordering other things on the menu but why?
The BEST Chicken Tenders I have Ever Had!!!
The tender basket was so so good-I got them medium and it was the perfect amount of heat! I got a side of fries and added collard greens. Those greens are slap ya mama goooooddd!
10/10 easily the best fried chicken in the Tampa area
great sandwich and service, will continue to order the Nashville Hot and bring family and friends when they come to town
The Nashville hot chicken tendies are the best in Tampa. I make the 60 mile round trip drive every two weeks. Perfect heat with amazing flavor. The fries are also 🔥🔥. Quick and easy service every time.
Best damn sandwich I have ever had!!
The most delicious and flavorful chicken and waffles I've ever had in Tampa. I had Biddy heat and it was just right for me! The waffle was crispy and complimented the chicken in a way I can't explain!
I ordered the king Mac to split it with my friend. HUGE MISTAKE. Halfway through my portion, I knew I needed a sandwich to myself; it was soooo good. I highly recommend it! It was so flavourful as well. It is my third time there, and I'll most definitely be back.
The flavor.... just hits the spot...EVERYTIME. By far one of my favorite spots in Tampa.
Best chicken tender ever!
I LOVE this place!! Now my job ubers the office food twice a month from the Coop.. Even our Uber driver went back same day to buy lunch for herself. Hoping a Brandon/Riverview location is in the future..
Best nashville hot chicken sandwich in the Tampa area
We always enjoy the food at King of the Coop! The hushpuppies with the pimento cheese is so yummy!!! And Joe is an awesome guy!!!
I'm obsessed with this meal!! The chicken is ALWAYS fresh and hot and omg SO good! The fries ate unbeatable! And the king sauce, well I always need tons of extra sauce cause this stuff is DELICIOUS!!! Its safe to say I'm obsessed with King of the Coop!!
This is "high-end" mac & cheese. The pasta shells are cooked perfectly and the cheese is creamy and almost runny. Once the container is opened in our house it's a fight to get your share.
Somehow King of The Coop manages to make a perfectly crispy tender that is not even the slightest bit dry inside. The tenders are crunchy and crispy, but juicy on the inside, which makes for a perfect sandwich. The Nashville Hot is just hot enough to remind me I'm eating hot chicken, but not so hot that I can't stop. 10/10, amazing food, amazing flavor
My oh my oh myeeeee!!!! Dirty Bird you are still on my mind. Pimento cheese, just the right heat and a sauce and flavor I can't deconstruct. I love you and I want to know you more!
This right here-was delicious! YOU MUST GO! The waffles were crispy and the chicken scrumptious.... You haven't had chicken and waffles until you've tried these chicken and waffles:-) I thoroughly enjoyed everything. Lastly, you will NOT leave hungry.
This was delicious! Best Nashville Hot chicken I've had! The sauce that comes with it is amazing. They are quick and you get a lot of food for the price! Would definitely recommend.
Never had such a Cajun styled sandwich with this much flavor and just enough spice From first bite to the last, by far the best I've EVER had!! People, DONT MISS OUT!!!!!
I ordered the level 5 heat. Chicken was crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside and really spicy. The mac and cheese was great on its own. Best Sandwich in Seminole Heights
It may not be a side or main dish, but the pimento cheese is one of the (many) reasons I go out of my way (drive 45min) to get King of the coop. Never had a bad thing from their restaurant, worth the drive and the money every time. Keep it up!!
Never had chicken and waffles in my life until i came here! Loved it
Chicken was fried to perfection. The employees were friendly. Definitely coming back.
Fantastic mix of flavor and texture, when it comes to chicken sandwiches king of the coop lives up to the king title and the king Mac is definitely top of the best
If you want to know what food they serve in heaven, it's King of the Coop. The food is always delicious and mouth watering good. Customer service has always been superb. King of the Coop is the place to eat in Tampa!
These tenders are the best I've ever had. The pickles are so tasty. I tried the Coops juice tonight and it was great!
We eat there all the time. They are always fresh and have amazing food. The hen is my favorite, the bread, the sauce all of it perfection!
The tender basket is so good, we got an extra tender with the biddy and they were really flavorful, super seasoned and sweet.
I absolutely love the tender basket I always get an extra tender and still can't get enough !! I love spice and Nashville hot hits the spot !! I put all my friends on king of the coop and they all love it.
I'm obsessed with KOC! Literally anytime someone asks me to suggest a local restaurant this is the spot I choose. Never misses either. The chicken tenders are to die for the spice level is perfect and the pickles are on point. I'm a picky eater and I know that going here, no matter what I get off the menu it's going to be amazing!
This place is on another level! After visiting nashville a few years back I was heartbroken to find out that hot chicken is not much of a thing in Tampa. I was so so excited when I found king of the coop and even more excited when I tried it and found it was just as good, if not better, than the hot chicken I've gotten in nashville. This is a truly fantastic eatery and filled with great people, I intend to come here for years to come!
Went to the N. Florida Ave location on Sunday. First time at the King of the Coop, ordered a 3 chicken tender meal, mild heat. I have to say, that chicken was the best chicken I have ever eaten in my life. The chicken was moist, and how ever you add flavor to those tenders, wow. The tenders also came with battered fries, absolutely delicious and some great sauce to dip, not sure what it was, but the entire meal was delicious. I could not recommend this chicken enough to give it the justice it deserves. The ordering setup was impressive too, and greeted by a friendly lady when I walked in. Just a great experience. Thanks guys for the great meal. Whatever your doing, keep on doing it.
Listen, this was the first time I ever tried this place and I must tell you the chicken was absolutely A-1! It was juicy, tender yet a hint of crisp! Oh let's not forget the waffles! It has the perfect amount of fluff! When I say this is going to be a weekly meal, IT IS! y'all are definitely hands down the best chicken place in TAMPA!
It was great. First time and I was genuinely impressed. My tastebuds were saturated with deliciousness!
This sandwich was delicious! I went with the midway heat and it still had a great kick to it. Also got the Coop Juice, my only regret is not getting more Coop Juice!
Best chicken sandwich in Tampa!! Can't wait for the Wesley chapel location to open... I'll be there almost every day!
