“The timing was just right and light of everything we’ve gone through as a community over the last few years, we’re so excited to offer Dothan residents, families and visitors a chance to experience the absolute best chicken fingers in the world,” said Guthrie’s Dothan Co-Owner Sam Klement. “We’re chicken fingers, crinkle fries, homemade coleslaw and sauce-loving locals that will live and breathe Dothan. When we first learned about the chance to bring Guthrie’s back to the community, we jumped at the opportunity. From families to office workers, little league teams, late night snackers, or anyone just craving authentic made-to-order chicken fingers and sides - we’ve got you covered at Guthrie’s. You have to try our signature Guthrie’s sauce - it’s a game changer.”
For more than 50 years, Guthrie’s has drawn in crowds across the country for its hand-breaded chicken fingers rooted in a tradition of fresh, hot, and fast, with a generous dash of southern hospitality. Rounding out Guthrie’s simple, yet classic menu is hand-chopped coleslaw, crinkle cut French fries, Texas toast and its signature dipping sauce. Guthrie’s history across the Wiregrass spans generations with restaurants stretching from Tallahassee to Panama City Beach, Auburn, Columbus, and Tuscaloosa with many customers enjoying a “Gut Box,” or a Guthrie’s Box, for decades.
“There is something simple, something quintessential about Guthrie’s golden fried chicken fingers that everyone can relate to - it’s very strong and powerful,” said Klement. “We’ve remained true to who we are since the original Guthrie’s opened in Haleyville, Ala. and then expanded into the very first chicken fingers-only restaurant in Auburn. While our menu hasn’t changed, we’re still evolving as a restaurant brand. We’re going to be a big part of the Dothan community and the surrounding region. We know that everyone is going to love the freshness and speed of service that families and friends have come to enjoy for generations.”
