Also, as much as you try to say Houston is a mecca for fried chicken, it isn't gonna make it true. I am sure there are some good, hole in the wall places that serve great chicken in a little obscure corner of the city, but that doesn't make Houston a chicken city. Didn't you live in Atlanta? Are you gonna say houston has better chicken than Atlanta too. But wait, I can't even have this conversation with you. I am the wrong color to know good chicken. My bad.
Here's the link that will clear everything up, since you seem to have forgotten:

Music Etiquette

I never said that your being white was the reason you couldn't tell the difference between soul food and regular southern food. There are plenty of white people who recognize that there's a difference, but evidently you aren't one of them.

Ethnic groups all over the world have foods that are associated with their culture. Soul food is the cuisine of black Americans, and whether you want to admit or not, that's MY culture and not yours. You may have grown up closely to it, but that doesn't make you just as knowledgeable about it as me. You've proven that already.

You are the one who first suggested that my being from Houston somehow makes me less of an expert on soul food, meaning that you fail to realize that this city's black and southern history goes almost as far back as Mississippi's. The Mexicans didn't come in and wipe away all of the culture that has been here for generations.

I clearly say in my above post that I never said Houston was one of the best cities for fried chicken. I'm the one who even started this discussion by saying that Dallas is said to have better FC. And chicken in Atlanta is cool, but nothing to write home about.

There you go again with the lies. And Popeye's can hardly any longer be described as "southern fried chicken" anymore than KFC or Churchs can.

Htown, have you ever tried Potato Patch? They're supposed to have good fried chicken.

And who here is into Pollo Campero?

Who cares? Fried Chicken is nasty and gives you diabeetus. KFC Original Recipe FTW.

When y'all decide which Texas city is the least southern be sure to let me know. I want to move there.

Food doesn't give you diabeetus, but poor eating habits do. And did you seriously just say that fried chicken was nasty and then praise Salty Fried Junk in the same sentence? Lol.

I want to like KFC so bad...but the last four times I had it ..it was horrible...Its turned into the fakest un-cooked, soggy battered pink meat nastiest chicken out there.....Its lost it....the looks of the chicken is a facade.....You think you are about to enjoy the closest thing to home fried chicken but when you bite into it...it bleeds.

If I'm going to get the diabeetus, at least I'll get it from something that tastes good -- like original recipe.

Oh, and the only fried chicken worth the calories is Babe's Chicken, conveniently located in Roanoke, Garland, Arlington, and other fine, DFW locations.

I wouldn't know about the fried chicken. It's nasty. Try the original recipe. It's the only reason to go there.

Now, their hot wings are pretty good (for a major chain), I have to admit.

It's not traditional fried chicken in the way that people think of fried chicken. That was my point.

You mean real food? Lol

All you have to do is take a regular piece of FC, put on way too much seasoning and MSG, add a bunch of moisture to make it soggy, and you'll have KFC's Original Recipe.
