I just had the best fried chicken since I was at the Dixie Cafe and Steak House ,Live Oak, Florida. It was at the Eliza Cafe in downtown Eliza, Ill. Listen to this: they do Catfish and Scored Carp on Fridays. Fried Chicken on Tuesdays.See ya there!

      Scored carp is considered a hors doover in Mercer Co. Ill. You get yourself a medium sized carp [bottom feeder fish} and clean it,filet and cut it up in strips and cut slits in strips [as in scoring]. Roll it in flour and cornmeal and fry the hell out of it. Smoking carp is also popular along the mighty Miss.as well. I always found them hard to keep lit.

        Does the Eliza Cafe pan fry or deep fry?

            Brad, they deep fry the scored carp to an unrecognizable dark crusty gob that reminds you of over cooked chicken livers. I would go there for the catfish and have some scored carp to appear local.It's a river thing. jfitz
