This famous KFC was originally Johnny Reb's Chick, Chuck and Shake Restaurant. The 56 feet (17 meter) tall chicken was constructed in 1963 and was reconstructed in 1993 after a storm damaged the original structure.

The restaurant is located at Marietta's biggest intersection, Cobb Parkway (US 41) and Roswell Road (S. R. 120).

The Big Chicken was designed by Hubert Puckett, a Georgia Tech student of architecture.

Pilots use the building as a reference point when approaching Atlanta and Dobbins Air Reserve Base.
