The Chicken is good and the sides and 'fried biscuits' are really a good add-on. Served Family Style. We also love their Chicken Livers, dipped in the white gravy.

 
that is a really nice place  http://www.joehubers.com/  .. I "liked" them on facebook too.
I had to check to see if the fried biscuits was a dessert, but apparently it's just the regular biscuits served with your food.   I've never heard of chicken livers with white gravy, and I don't eat chicken livers, but that sounds like it would be better than having  chicken livers over rice topped with brown gravy.
 
I see they have a  Power Lunch for $24.95 per person - Minimum of 20 people (M-F only) Country Platter Dinner - Buffet Style  ... that's not a cheap lunch, but for a private party I guess that's about average.

Go Chicken Go doesn't sound like fried chicken - that sounds like a chicken on the run .. when we were kids, pre-schoolers, we'd help daddy kill  and pluck chickens.  Sometimes the chicken would jump out of the tub and with its head chopped off it would  flap its wings running down the hill towards the river and daddy would tell us to run and "catch it before it falls in the river and drowns" - I think about that all the time, he must have gotten a real laugh out of that.

I agree with the Oklahoma people who suggested Eischen's in Okarche. It's a "destination" place, but better be prepared to wait for a table - no matter what time you go. :)  In Oklahoma City, Mama E's Soul Food has good fried chicken wings and waffles, but I wouldn't go to that area after dark!

Gus's in downtown Memphis is the best FC I've ever had. Before Gus started, Jack Pirtle's in memphis was a good local fast food chain. At least I thought so.

I have lots of fried chicken places I enjoy, many of which have either been mentioned or are already on this site in the restaurant directory:
 
1.  Hollyhock Hill, Indianapolis
2.  Strouds, Kansas City
3.  Beaumont Inn, Harrodsburg, KY
4.  Science Hill Inn, Shelbyville, KY
5.  Castle Cafe, Castle Rock, Colorado  
6.  Moose Lodge dining room, Hillsboro, Illinois 
7.  White Fence Farm, Denver
8.  Hodak's, St. Louis 
9.  Niecie's, Kansas City
10.  Mrs. White's Golden Rule and LoLo's Chicken and Waffles, Phoenix (tie)
 
I like Joe Huber's, the Loveless, and Gray Brothers Cafeteria in Mooresville, IN (near the airport), but I think their fried chicken livers are better than the fried chicken itself.
 
Places that had great fried chicken, and that I miss:
1.  Laughner's cafeteria (used to be many of them, throughout Indiana) -- really some of the best fried chicken, ever.  It's a shame they went out of business.
2.  Mrs. Peters Chicken Dinners, Kansas City, Kansas
3. Sleepy Hollow, Oklahoma City

Not much of a fried kinda guy when it comes to chicken, but Bum's in Ayden, NC has the best I've ever put in my mouth.

Here's a sleeper that no one here will probably ever get to because it's so off the beaten path. I was only there myself because we were visiting the Laura Ingalls Wilder sites in the upper midwest last year.

The place is called Nellie's Cafe, and it's in Walnut Grove, Minnesota, in the south-western corner of the state. The town is about 1,000 people, and is only known at all because Ingalls Wilder lived there for two years when she was about eight, in the 1870s.

Nellie's Cafe is about the only place to eat in town. We went there not because we knew anything about it, but because it was lunchtime and we needed somewhere to eat. The decor was 50's diner - the furniture looked to be at least 40 years old, and the whole place needed some TLC in the decorating department. 
 
But the food made up for it. We ordered fried chicken, and from the plates of chicken that arrived at our table 20 minutes later, it is our guess that the cook prepared the chicken from scratch when we ordered it. This isn't uncommon, but at a place like this, we weren't expecting anything special. We'd eaten at Stroud's a few days earlier, and I think I enjoyed the chicken here more.
 
To top things off, they make wonderful homemade pies as well. I hope someone on this thread eventually gets to eat there so they can back me up about how special this place was. Good things come in surprising packages, sometimes.

I have to put a plug in for The Chicken Shack here in Murfreesboro, TN.  Even if you don't want it hot they have some really good chicken.
 
Great turnip greens and potato salad.  Actually, I like their burgers pretty well also.

I see you went to Lady and Son's- I went there back in 2005 and really enjoyed their Fried Chicken- I'm glad to see it's still good- I also went to Jestine's earlier this year. If I recall the fried Chicken at Jestine's was very similar to the Fried Chicken at Lady and Son's, this was from memory since both visits were over 4 years apar- so I'm wondering if you agree?

The biggest difference in the chicken was Gus's.  It was a light   coating of just well seasoned flour.  If u go there order the 1/2 chicken.  The pieces are small.  Jestines and Lady and Sons have a heavier crust, well all the others have a heavy crust, maybe breaded twice.  Joey K's was my fav.  I grew up in New England and I don't remember ever having fried chicken.  Now its my passion along with hotdogs(Flo's in York Maine), donuts(Congdon's in Wells Maine), pizza (, Wells House Of Pizza(Wells Maine),) Petes (DaytonaFlorida), andBabes(brandon Florida).

I guess none of y'all have been to Dallas and had fried chicken at Bubba's.
If you had, you would have made it number one.

Ye, Lamberts is the throwed rolls place.  The rolls are delish.  I really loved Lamberts.  You order a dinner plus they come around with extra goodies.  The fried potatoes and onions, fried okra, and apple butter are to die for.  BTW, its a chain.  I went to the one in Gulf Shore, but there are other locations.

I would love a good homemade yeast roll and fried chicken about now .. I've starving. 
 
I've heard about the rolls at Lamberts, but I've never been there, I guess I should try to go there one day

"Lamberts, The Home of Throwed Rolls" is NOT a chain. There are only 3 "Lamberts, The Home of Throwed Rolls" locations, all owned by the same family.  Sikestown, MO - Foley, AL (NOT Gulf Shores) & Ozark, MO. 
www.throwedrolls.com.
There are other restaurants named Lamberts but they are NOT connected to the original "Lamberts, The Home of Throwed Rolls"" that started in Sikestown, MO.  Get your facts straight.

ditto eishen's! no picking and choosing you get an entire chicken and that's that. served with 2 kinds of pickle slices and onions. their fried okra is great too, with real okra flavor rather than bland fried nuggets.

Lamberts is huge!  It reminded me of Cracker Barrel across the front and with the gift shop.   I hope the customer that started the throwed roll gets to eat for free - he saved alot of money in marketing.
 
I know I always thought Cracker Barrel was a chain, but was surprised that the original owner owns them all. 
 
it makes you wonder though, how Lamberts with 2 locations in Mo. wound out in Alabama..

"Lamberts, The Home of Throwed Rolls" is NOT huge. Only 3 locations. See my post above and go to their web site.
Customers did not start throwing the rolls, THE EMPLOYEES THROW THE ROLLS!
They wound up in AL because the owners would go down to the gulf shore on vacation and decided that would be a good place for a restaurant.
Cracker Barrel IS a chain and are NOT owned by any one individual person or entity. As of September 21, 2010, it operated 595 full-service restaurants and gift shops in 41 states. They are A PUBLICLY TRADED COMPANY ON NASDAQ! Their stock closed today at $52.69, (down 1.33%).
The Pres & CEO, Michael A. Woodhouse, just sold 145,330 shares of his stock on Tuesday.

Wow, Foodbme, take a pill, you're going to hurt yourself. So what if Lambert's is in Foley, a suburb of Gulf Shores? And, while their food is deceent and pentiful, it ain't all that and a bag of chips! Can you say canned green beans?
