Where? It's really hard to find good fried chicken these days. I would love to know of a place where it is really good.

Oar and Oak in Stratford/Milford, Haven Hot Chicken in New Haven, or Sandra’s in New Haven.

Thanks man. I love fried chicken and finding good fried chicken has been a struggle. Kentucky Fried Chicken has really gone downhill from what it was when I was a kid. And Popeye's used to be good, but also went downhill severely for some reason.

Lovebirds opened by me and I tried it, but it wasn't great. It was pretty dry and the taste was muted at best.

I used to get really good fried chicken at Fresco on the Go in Manhattan, but I don't go into Manhattan anymore. It's funny that an Italian place had such good fried chicken, but they used to have it every Wednesday and I always got it because it was really good.

I appreciate your suggestions.

Walrus Alley, right. Last summer. Haven't been back to the main center since, only Saugatuck. Not sure if it's still open.

1970s KFC was the best as a kid. Great stuff. Couldn't tell you what it's like now.

Now I’m craving it.

Have you tried Drumstick on north Main Street in Bridgeport? With the pandemic it’s been a while but it used to be very good. My family near you in Fairfield go there for their fried chicken fix. We find it a lot better than KFC or Popeyes. Wish there was a place like it here in Hartford. Jay

Dazzleman doesn't do Bridgeport. He'd prefer Westport Center without a doubt.
Walrus's website is still up so looks like it survived COVID.
Click on "Gallery" and look at the picture of the fried chicken dinner with someone pouring syrup over it. My God, just look at that thing. If that doesn't make you hungry I don't know what does. That's what it looks like when you get it too. It's not like a picture of a Big Mac at Mcdonalds that doesn't look like the Big Mac you get in the box.

I will go to the northern part of Main Street in Bridgeport.

Dazzleman lives less than 1 mile from the Bridgeport city line and about 3 miles from Drumstick. Westport is about 10 miles from him. I’m pretty sure that the Popeye’s and KFC he goes to are in Bridgeport since there are none in Fairfield. Like I said my family that lives near him in Fairfield will drive to Main Street in Bridgeport for Drumstick’s chicken. He might like it. It’s certainly better than Popeyes and KFC. Jay
