How about Churches fried chicken?

I like it, I admit I have probably never met a fried chicken I did not like, just some more than others.

    My prefrence is broasted... If you havent tried it, do so. Churchs will no longer be on your list.. (Can be found at many small and mid size mom and pop shops).

    Churches Ok if you happen to arrive right before a fresh dump from the fryer. I understand they have spicy now? FYI: Most Churches stores owned now by a LARGE (originally) Popeye's franchisee out of Orlando, FL. The Cajun Rice at Churches is rather good, also. Much better than Popeye's version of same.

    There's a Church's near my office, but it's in a VERY scary part of town and doesn't have a drive through, so unless I take an armed guard with me I'll just have to live in ignorance.

    How scary can Richmond be? Is Grant still there with a few of his troops? You want to see scary come to Boston I'll take you to Matterpan or the Berry now that can get scary. Chow Jim

    Walk tall, act natural; look no one directly in the eyes until you get to the restaurant. Order what you want. Return to your office in the same way; having comfort in knowing that your PPK is secretly awaiting to assist you should the need arise. My Walther PPK; my friend and a daily companion.

    Just my opinion, but of all the fried chicken chains out there, I find Church's to be the least desirable. In my experience it has been generally tasteless and most often comes very, very dry. Prefer Popeyes, Publix, PoFolks, and sometimes KFC (which is a gamble as it's sometimes good, but more often not so good). But if Church's is tasty in your area, "that's a good thing."

    Having been to both, there are areas I wouldn't venture at night in either area... and I think parts of richmond are as bad or worse than the areas of boston you mentioned Jim. Richmond has maintained a top ten spot for most dangerous cities for awhile now. The southside can be, and often is, lethal. Spent some time there in the early 90's selling medical equipment...wasn't fun.


    I like almost all spicy chicken...churchs spicy will do but I haven;t seen a churchs in some time.

    For a time Richmond had the highest murder rate per capita in the United States--it's improved a bit, but not much. The company I work for, which is located on the other side of the James River from downtown Richmond, routinely has a patrol going through the parking lots because just beyond the parking lots are ... well ... slums. Before the patrols, there were regular car thefts and break-ins and a few people got mugged--in broad daylight. The Church's is about three blocks into the 'hood. I am a small white woman in a small bright blue SUV. If there was a drive-through, I wouldn't have a problem--I go to the Popeye's on Chamberlayne Avenue pretty regularly and that also is not in the best area. But it doesn't, and it also has bulletproof glass. I know there's some who will happily descend into urban warzones for good eats, but I'm a bit more cautious.

    "In my experience it has been generally tasteless and most often comes very, very dry." Don't buy it from the rack. Either wait for a new dump from the fryer or ask that your order be fixed from a NEW dump. (10-15 min. waiting time.) KFC is a waste of time. They have sucked since '68.

    I like Church's the best out of all the chix franchises. They don't mess around with spices or extra coating. Very lightly floured and then fried, real simple, very good. Their biscuits are the best too.

    The one I go to is very busy, so I've never had a problem with dried-out chicken.

    I live in piedmont NC and Bojangles is the fried chicken place of choice if you want spicy (although not as spicy as it once was).

    I think anywhere in North Carolina...Bojangles will be the chicken of choice....they are everywhere.

    I can't wait for them to open another restaurant in Kentucky. We had them in Louisville, Lexington and Richmond but they all folded. Now the rumor is one is on the way to Ashland...I can't wait. I love their chicken.

    And, I didn't respond to the forum question.......I have never had any problems with Church's, unlike KFC and Lee's.

    One thing I've always liked about Church's is the jalapeno peppers on the menu. Twenty or thirty cents each for a pickled pepper just makes my day. The only one I know of in Charlotte is in a, shall we be kind, shady part of town. Pawn shop next door, strip club (THE Paper Doll) and porn shop a block away.

    My Colt 1911A1 is my friend. Another problem is that I drive past Price's Chicken Coop and three Bojangles before getting to this Church's from my old office.

    Way back when I was in school, I spent a couple years broasting chicken and then moved on to frying chicken at Church's. I was in the management program, we would have lines out the door at 10:00 AM. Our lunch rush would go for 4 hours or more. We'd get an hour break then dinner rush would hit. People loved the chicken!

    If I can't get broasted chicken, Church's is still one of my favorite places to get fast food fried chicken. Over the past 20 years I have never had the dry chicken exerience.

    I would not go to any place that is that unsafe.

    There are no Churches on the left coast that I know of, it sounds as though the quality depends on the individual store.

    Here in Nashville the Churches are in with White Castle. Hard to order just chicken without getting a sack full of SLIDERS!!! Although the chicken at Churches has gotten much smaller and more money than when they had their own freestanding outlets

    I agree...the chicken is getting much smaller at Church's

    I'll stick with Lee's or KFC

    Haven't eaten a Church's in quite awhile.There are two in my area,here in Schertz and one in Universal City.Both are on main streets.Schertz one is on Farm to Market Road 78,which goes to Seguin
    lots of trafic day and night,and the UC on is on Pat Booker Road.It's the main drag through town.Lots of places to eat but it does get backed up with people going back to work at Randolph AFBase from lunch.Solid line of cars sometimes so you have to wait a while before you can go and get out of Mc Donald's or Wendy's etc. We also have some small italian places there.And You can always go over to the Olympia Forum to eat at Sea Island a local San Antonio chain,Red Robin.Panda Express,louie Le Deux,etc.
    Sometimes Church's can be greasy,so I may get the chicken strips which are good.
    I don't know of any scary areas really in town,but the east side and west side of SA can be.But not like Richmond. Downtown SA is pretty safe lots of cops on patrol on bicycles to watch out for the tourists.Most people in SA are nice.

    garryd451,
    my husband, The Old Fart agrees with you.
    he gets churches when it's fresh; when it sits it seems greasier.

    I used to work at Church's Fried Chicken in the 1970s . It was delicious back then. But, since then they have changed their recipe and it tastes horrible now. If I had a choice between Church's and Grandy's I would take Grandy's anyday of the week.

    Church's is everywhere; so is KFC. The quality of these two apparently depends on the ability of the cook at each store.

    PoFolks is apparently a rare bird now, with most franchises in Florida and a scattering elsewhere (found and checked their website). I liked PoFolks chicken much better than either of the above.

    Albuquerque (where I live now) has Popeye's, whose chicken tastes better than either of Church's or KFC, but Popeye's sides aren't very good. Grandy's just went out of business here. ChickFil-A has a few stores here, but that's mostly chicken sandwiches (they're tasty, but are not the same as regular fried chicken).

    The best fried chicken in Albuquerque is at the four Golden Fried Chicken restaurants, which have both very good fried chicken, and smoked chicken. I have no idea what they put in their breading, but the chicken is moist and tasty. They also have New Mexican food. They're owned by the Frontier (reviewed elsewhere) and serve the Frontier Roll and smaller breakfast burritos.

    We used to have PoFolks here in San Antonio.They pulled out of here.Course the shooting death of the manager of the one on Walzam during a robbery didn't help any.
    There are Golden Fried Chicken here,but mainly in places like New Braunfels,Gonzales and some of the other small towns around the area.

    Haven't been to Popeye's in ages or KFC for chicken.
