The Crestwood restaurant took Riverfront Times' "most underrated fried chicken" honor by a landslide.
The voters have spoken: Crestwood's King Edward's Chicken & Fish serves up the "most underrated fried chicken" in St. Louis, according to a Riverfront Times poll. King Edward's was up against Fischer's Restaurant, London & Sons Wing House, The PIccadilly at Manhattan and Tip Top Food & Spirits. The victory was a landslide. King Edward's supporters comprised 63.89 percent of the vote; runner up, The Piccadilly at Manhattan, received just 16.67 percent of the vote. King Edward's also took South County's "best fried chicken" honor in Patch's Food Fight contest last year--though the margin was a bit slimmer. The chicken joint took 42 percent of the votes, edging Marty's Bistro in High Ridge.

And now, Riverfront Times readers nominated the restaurant as the "most underrated fried chicken" in St. Louis. King Edward's is up against Fischer's Restaurant, London & Sons Wing House, The PIccadilly at …
