3166 N. High Street (corner of Pacemont and High St).
Friday-Sunday 12:00-8:00pm

When Ray Ray’s moved down the street to Ace of Cups, their newly vacant spot seemed a great food truck location left truck-less. But as food trucks abhor a vacuum, the void has now been filled by Mya’s fried chicken – a new truck offering fried chicken and comfort food sides. It’s run by a former executive banquet chef who left his job to start the business, named after his daughter.

We went all-in and ordered a whole bird with biscuits and all of the sides. The chicken is sourced from a local distributor, is antibiotic and hormone free, and is all Ohio proud. It was certainly good enough to satisfy a serious fried chicken craving, with our preference leaning towards the juicier dark meat. The breast was a bit on the dry side on our visit. The breading and skin were crunchy in places with a little chewiness and there was a nice touch of rosemary – overall the flavor was exceptional. We ordered ours plain and tried the vinegar sauce and herbed honey drizzle on the side.

The warm house-made biscuits were very popular with our tasting team. They also go well with the herbed honey.

Of the sides, our favorite was the smashed potatoes with pan gravy. The gravy was rich and meaty and it disappeared first. We’ve heard really good reviews about the mac and cheese from friends, and it was highly recommended by the staff, but on the day we were there the sauce was broken, so although the flavor was good the texture was grainy.

The lemonade was nice and refreshing, neither too sweet nor too tart.

    We just had undercooked chicken from this place. The breading didn’t stick. Entire operation seemed unorganized. No thanks.

      Hi Angela,

      I’m terribly sorry to hear about your experience. Unfortunately I was away from the truck picking up supplies when you were there. We have only been around for a month or so and do have a lot of wrinkles to still iron out but clearly undercooked food is completely unacceptable. We take our craft seriously and appreciate when people let us know when we have missed the mark.

      I’d love to get a chance to make it up to you if you would let us. Come back and introduce yourself to me and your lunch or dinner for two is on us!

      Hope to see you soon,
      Mark Tolentino
      Owner, Mya’s Fried Chicken

    Thank you Mya’s!! This is the BEST fried chicken I have ever had in my entire life!! It was perfectly crispy and so moist inside! The added herbed honey- exquisite! I plan on coming back with my family for more! In addition, the sides- especially the mashed potatoes and gravy- were perfect! They had a down-home taste that I absolutely loved! I wish you were open during the week!!
    Thanks again and we’ll be seeing you soon!

    Great fried chicken! I tried the 2 piece breast and wing. Loved the honey and vinegar drizzled on top. Chicken had just the right amount of crunch and was juicy inside. Definitley worth the wait as it is made to order. Looking forward to my next visit to try the chicken and biscuit slider and smashed potatoes!!

    Stopped at Mya’s Fired Chicken today got a bird and half, potatoes, green beans and biscuits. It more then met our expectations, We love that the chicken is antibiotic and hormone free, also love that it didn’t taste greasy or salty it was wonderful. The potatoes were wonderful and the biscuits fabulous, even the grandchildren cleaned their plates. Next time we hope to try the other side dishes.

    My family of four get a whole bird and one large side. Everyone loves every bite we take. Chicken with honey and vinegar drizzled on it is amazing. Great new truck!!!!

    My husband & I stumbled upon Mya’s while driving home yesterday. So glad that happened because we ended up having the best fried chicken and mashed potatoes ever!! The waffles were also delicious! We went close to closing time so they were out of mac-n-cheese & gravy but im sure they’ll be just as amazing! Found my new favorite go-to spot!! ❤
