I'm from the South, so hey, sue me. I love fried chicken. That's the only explanation for why I'm 30 pounds overweight. Funny thing is, I don't have a gargantuan gut. But that's besides the point. I'm trying to get a gauge of some of the best fried chicken restaurants across the U.S. I'm due for a road trip anyways. Popeye's - Love their spicy new orleans style chicken. I think they also have the best sides. KFC - I only go here because they're relatively cheap. Their original recipe is pretty good, but their crispy is seasoned wrong somehow. Just doesn't taste right. Lee's Famous Recipe - I love them to death, but unfortunately, they're beginning to go out of business everywhere I look. Know any other good fried chicken restaurants?
