Old-fashioned fast-food chain dishing out fried chicken, biscuits & other Southern eats.- Google
"The Dr. Pepper literally tasted like a cross between Coke and Dr. Pepper."
"The crust was somewhat like I remember it, but not quite."

I have not eaten at a Pioneer chicken since I was a kid...and now that I have relived the memory, I wish I had kept the childhood memory where it was. I think Pioneer is 100% known for its crust. It is the main reason the place stays in business. The crust was somewhat like I remember it, but not quite. It took 15 minutes to get my food. I purchased a combo meal for $8.18, which gave me 1 leg, 1 thigh, 1 small drink, 1 small side, and one tiny Hawaiian roll. The chicken tasted under-cooked and it was dripping oil...disgusting! The side I got (coleslaw) was good and it is hard to mess up on a Hawaiian roll. The Dr. Pepper literally tasted like a cross between Coke and Dr. Pepper. There are NO restrooms in the entire store and they have wipes to wash your hands on (which I hate using). Lastly, about 30 minutes after eating here, I had to take a crap like none other and I was in a place without a bathroom. I'm telling you, there is something very wrong about what this Pioneer Chicken places serves you, because that food did not agree with my intestines. I was very very very disappointed in my visit here. I will not be back!

Pioneer Chicken is by far the best fried chicken I have ever had. Nothing can beat their yummy batter! When I was a kid they were everywhere. I miss it so much I drive all the way from San Fernando just to enjoy some once in a while. I wish someone would open one near me. The old building in my neighborhood where it used to be is vacant.

This is from I believe the last Pioneer around (unfortunately for everybody who has never had it and can't get over here) but thankfully its just as good as what I remember growing up. Can't believe KFC is around and Pioneer died.

I happened to see this on the way to hospital and had to stop on my way back. I haven't had pioneer chicken in over 20 years and it was as great as I remembered it. I literally cried with every bite
