"Serving Charlotte, NC since 1978, The Chicken Box Cafe has been bringing to the community the very best in soul food, like our Southern-fried chicken, smothered pork chops, baked chicken, neck bones, turkey wings, and our mouth-watering barbecue riblets."

"Many different establishments were sampled - chains, revered Charlotte institutions, dives, and upscale joints. Most were good, but only one was great. The Chicken Box Café, a dive joint known mostly for its fried chicken and soul food, has such moist and succulent ribs you'll gnaw on the bones looking for the last piece of sweet meat. The pork ribs have generous portions of moist meat drenched in a tomato-mustard sauce with paprika and a hint of cumin. There's something hidden in here that makes these ribs taste like Grandma's secret recipe."
