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!

Tender Basket

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?

Chicken and Waffles

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!

The King Mac

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.

Mac & Cheese

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.

Nashville Hot

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

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

Pimento Cheese

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!!

Nashville Hot

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.

Chicken and Waffles

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!

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!
