To ride on the coattails of my BBQ thread, I humbly submit a fried chicken joint thread.
Title says it all. What is your favorite fried chicken joint and why? All styles welcome, chains are fine, but it has to be fried chicken someone can purchase.
Feel free to add side dishes, why they’re essentential to this place, and how they add to the experience.
My favorite has to be Brother’s Food Mart in and around New Orleans. It’s a gas station/convenience store with a food counter that sells fried chicken, catfish, meat pies, etc.
Their chicken is sublime. It’s very moist and just a bit greasy, with a seasoned breading that has a hint of lingering heat. Add a dash of Louisiana hot sauce and it’s fried chicken heaven.
