Comedian Jay Leno ordered a wing dinner, a white-meat dinner and several sweet teas for lunch Thursday at Price’s Chicken Coop.
Leno took photos with everyone who asked and made a great impression, Price’s employee Ida De Zwaan said. After ordering, he crossed the street to have lunch outside and welcomed other customers who sat down to eat with him.
The former “Tonight Show” host was in Charlotte to perform at the Belk Theatre last night. His trip to Price’s made it into his set, according to one audience member.

De Zwaan is confident Leno will return to Price’s next time he’s in town.
“He was tearin’ it up.”
