          Strouds and Bon Ton are my favorites (has Bon Ton now closed?).  I don't seem to have pics of eithers.

          Second to that is Willie Mae's in New Orleans.  I recommend them, since just getting to Willie Mae's was a great adventure for us.



          The chicken place in Cape May (spacing on the name, two old German ladies run it), and Gus and Gus over in Rehoboth Beach are good, too.

          Here's Gus and Gus:



          Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles are really good.  Alas, the only picture I seem to have from there is of the smothered chicken (which is good, but not photogenic):



          Of course, you can always make it good yourself.  Here's some we made:

            You already started a thread on this subject. Why did you start another one? You just don't get it do you?

              Foodman........Have a moderator delete this post and thread.  I don't need anymore fried chicken than I can get in Mississippi.  I would like to make peace with you.  I edited my other post about fried chicken to remove any copyright material.  And now I'm asking a moderator to delete this post of mine and the thread on fried chicken. 
               
              What can I do to make you happy now.  What if I decided to post recommendations for BBQ sauce that I read on another site.  If I simply post the BBQ sauce names and say here's a list of top 10 BBQ sauces compliments of Bon Appetit will that work.  You tell me how to do it to suit you and your friends as well as this site. 
               
              I will see that it's done right in the future and you and I can start trying to be friends.  OK.  You tell me how.  I await your answer.

                I think some of you are out of line hassling Littleman. When he started posting he posted lists that were hige and was questioned. he apologized and acted like a gentleman. He has made it clear that most posts are from his personal experiences or that of close friends. He is enthusiastic and appreciative of roadfood.  If there are issue with a post maybe some of you should be less antagonistic and more helpful and more of a gentleman like he appears to be. Maybe as my mother used to say. "Play nice"!

                    I know this has been recommended by others, like Esquire mag, but Gus's Fried Chicken is worth the trip. 
                    It's my first stop whenever I fly in to Memphis, TN.  
                    Almost as good is the sister restaurant, also Gus's, out Hwy 57 about 40 miles east.

                            #1 Stroud's in Kansas City is my gold standard.
                            Great fried Chicken, livers and gizzards. Chicken fried steaks, Huge fried shrimp and fantastic grilled pork chops. (I have relatives close by and we been to Stroud’s a lot!)

                             Bobo’s Chicken Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
                            Smoked chicken wings that are breaded and fried then with a optional coating of honey.
                            Smoky fried and sweet it all was fantastic with a side of French fries and fried biscuits.
                            Bobo’s chicken is served out of a trailer in a rough section of Oklahoma City on Friday and Saturday nights. The only piece of chicken served is the wings. They do have fried shrimp and catfish also.

                            In the kitchen ready to carry out to the tables
                             

                              
                             
                            Willie Mae’s Scotch House New Orleans
                             
                            Fiorella’s New Orleans
                             
                            Celebrity Club Tulsa, Oklahoma
                             
                            Hammett House Claremore Oklahoma
                             
                             
                            Looks like Gus’s in Memphis needs to be on my future eats list. Also heard good thing about the Babe’s in the Dallas area.

                              I like POPEYES Spicy, A spicy breast is $ 2.12 and comes with a biscuit.

                              Can't beat that deal !

                              Might be a fast food joint, but they make some good chicken !

                                You really have a point there.  Of all the fried chicken chain restaurants, Popeye's spicy is the best I've ever tasted.  Absolutely phenomenal.

                                  When it comes to filets or chicken tenders, I'm crazy about Chick-Fil-A, both the product and the customer service.

                                    I don't know about anywhere else, but my local Popeye's has a special on Tuesdays for two pieces of dark for 99 cents. Thighs are my favorite piece anyway. Four spicy thighs for two dollars!! Woo-hoo!!! Thank God it's only one day a week.

                                      Thanks for the tip.  I hate thighs but love the legs, so maybe I can get the same deal for drumsticks!

                                        It's not a restaurant, or fast food, but those Banquet fried chicken dinners, the ones you microwave... those are AWESOME.

                                          It is supposed to be one leg and one thigh, but I always ask if they have enough to give me all thighs and they always have so far. I imagine they would have no problem doing the same with legs, supply permitting. As I mentioned though, it might just be a promotion this one location does. But it can't hurt to ask!!

                                            I ate at a boarding house once, it was kinda odd setting at the table with people you didn't know, but it was an experience and they had good rolls.  I don't know why we never went back, it could have been that it took longer than an hour, but we wanted to go so we could say we had been

                                                I like POPEYES Spicy, A spicy breast is $ 2.12 and comes with a biscuit.

                                                Can't beat that deal !

                                                Might be a fast food joint, but they make some good chicken !


                                                You really have a point there.  Of all the fried chicken chain restaurants, Popeye's spicy is the best I've ever tasted.  Absolutely phenomenal.

                                                I too love POPEYES!!!  I'm not really a breast man, but give me a couple good thighs (spicy of course) with maybe a dash of hot sauce to boot.  Maaaaaaaan  what choo talkin' about!!!

                                                  I was going to post a photo of some chicken from Donahoo's but can't figure out how to do it.

                                                      Hopkins Boarding House in Pensacola FL had the Best Fried Chicken going. The Sterns did a review of them sometime back. They've since closed I believe.

                                                        Popeye's... Chik-fil-A.... this topic is best fried chicken in America.

                                                        There is a separate section for discussing which fast food chain you like best.

                                                         Sorry to go all "huffy a-hole", but y'know, if I'm in Kansas City, or ANYWHERE, I really don't need to know about Popeye's fried chicken. It's like being told about how much you like Wendy's hamburgers.

                                                          I could never definitively post a top 10 in this category as I have not toured the states enough to have tried the best all over the country, but as far as Oklahoma is concerned, Eischens in Okarche is remarkable fried chicken.
                                                           
                                                          In Southern Illinois, there's this little tavern in Bartelse, IL, called Larry's West End Tavern (about 25 minutes from St. Louis).  They have the best fried chicken I've ever had in that area and the atmosphere is definitely "Roadfood worthy".

                                                            I have a couple of favorites, and I will say a good word for Popeyes FF Spicy as being the only one I will bother with in the 'Drive-Thru League'.
                                                             
                                                            In the real Fried Chicken world We like Huber's Family Farm Restaurant in Starlight,IN (25 minutes from Louisville). Bright and rural, it is a nice place to take visitors. 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.
                                                            Next,  The Log Inn in Warrenton,IN. Labeled the oldest operating restaurant in Indiana, it maintains it's historic link to the early Lincoln history period. Rough beams and flooring give the place a strong visual connection with that history. The Chicken is outstanding, and the Livers are even better. The family style dinners are inexpensive and have massive amounts of excellent Chicken always hot and fresh. Try the Lemon Pie for a fine dessert.  Located just north of I-64 about a mile from Exit 25. (North side of Evansville).
                                                            Someone added a comment about Gus's Chicken being really good. If they mean Gus's on the North side of Memphis I will second their recommendation. Gus Makes Spicy Chicken the way it should be made !!!!!
