Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had was from a grocery store cafeteria in Elizabeth City, NC.

I'd been thinking bout taking a spin over to the Mississippi casinos. Sounds like a place to stop on the way.

Thanks.

To many Yankees have moved to the south screwing up everything. Including fried chicken!

This is so true! Southern home cooks are artists when it comes to southern fried chicken. You have to let it drain and fry it at just the right temperature for just the right amount of time. This best down in small batches at home, not in restaurants where quantity and "efficiency" is needed.

Yeah Hart's has been around for as long as I can remember, I'm surprised they have never expanded outside of Mobile. Their peach cobbler is pretty famous too.

We like Publix fried chicken. It is consistently good.

Cracker Barrel makes an excellent "Buttermilk Fried Chicken."

I'd be ashamed if I ate fried chicken! Next time you fry up a batch measure how much oil you put into the pan and then measure what is left. Yep ... all that grease was absorbed by your chicken!
