no doubt, Pat's Bar and Grill (across from the Turtle Park near the zoo)...not sure if it meets the regional zone?? but definitely the best fried chicken I've ever eaten!

Trainwreck - not only the Sunday dinner, but of course their Wreck Wings are fabulous too!

Piccadilly at Manhattan seasoned and cooked perfectly for crispy non greasy fried chicken. Not a fan of porter's inspite trying several times hoping for a different result.
