I've tried the same food in Bay Area, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Miami, and they just don't compare at all to this one in Houston, even some of the upscale ones in Houston don't compare to the casual one. Not even in the same ball park.

Contact us

$5, and that's all it takes to be one very content happy person.
Awesome. I'll have to check it out because I'm always in that area.

Oh oh oh I'm about to go pick up some of it right now! Hahaha, be jealous!

But on the real though, Bay Area is one very phenomenal food place for almost every category there is. Like gosh damn, someone should make it an ethnic food paradise or something. So much variety with Mongolian, Thai, Italian, French, Chinese, Indian, Russian, among others. Amber is always a place I look forward to going back too when I visit my cousins in the Bay Area.

For L.A., Zankou is great. It's Armenian and they have a great garlic sauce. L.A. Chicken downtown calls itself the "Japanese El Pollo Loco". They do a particular rub that makes their chicken pretty tasty. Both these places are great cheap street foods. Knotts Berry Farm's fried chicken is great, but it's got lots of devotees, so for me it's not worth the long wait.

But I'm actually a KFC original recipe kinda guy anyway. I did have a super-secret San Jose location that always did its chicken tenders PERFECTLY tender and moist and not overcooked like all the other KFCs in the area. I might have to take a trip back up to see if it's still true.

But but but, do Asian Indians & Latinas walk in together at that location in Los Angeles? Is it friendly for them to be seen together eating Chicken? LOL

Yeah the Bay Area is exceptional for food in general. Probably my favorite foodie metropolitan area in the country. Just absolutely fantastic food all around.

Well, there's Salo-Salo Grill in Artesia (that's Little India), but it's Filipino. How 'bout the El Pollo Loco on Pioneer Blvd? An Indian guy and a Latina girl can rub elbows there without causing too much of a stir. As long as they assemble their tacos in silence and don't look at each other. Separate tables, of course.

I'm from Kentucky originally. And they make some damn good chicken. Grandma's, Aunts, and mom's fry up some of the best chicken you'll have down there.

KFC can't touch some of the home recipes in Kentucky.

What's great about chicken is how good each ethnic cuisine prepares it. I highly recommend India chicken [tandoori, bhuna] with rice; delicious! Thai BBQ chicken with spicy honey sauce is just totally addictive. All the Mexican pollo places, Filipino adobo, Japanese teriyaki make super chicken dishes. Chicken is a cheap thrill since it is not expensive but always good.
