"A first taste of Bon Ton fried chicken, like a first kiss, is a never-to-be forgotten event."

All I can say is that Michael Stern never kissed Zelda Dunn.

      If your cousin Zelda was from New Haven, Connecticut and changed her name to Robin, then, yes.

        Why on Earth would someone change their name from Zelda to Robin?

            Not meaning to spoil all your fun and the wonderful wit displayed above...

            We were enjoying an evening at the Henderson(KY) W C Handy Blues and BBQ festival last year when we were joined by Roadfooder LOUIS who hails from that fine city. He brought with him, to the city park where the music was playing, 3 orders of the Fried Chicken described by Michael Stern...in typical foam boxes. The chicken was really good good and did a great job of adding to the 'flavor' of the evening. The pieces are not Huge, but the spicy flavor stays with you a long time after the last bone is picked clean.

                        In fact, she was the spitting imnage of Anne Francis.

                          Must be a different Zelda then. Rather than Anne Francis, mine looked more like Francis the Talking Mule.

                            Again, not to spoil the family-related fun in the above posts, but did anyone else but me notice the visual comparison of the two day's selection for Restaurant Reviews? Yesterday it was Kentucky Convenience Store Boxed Fried Chicken w/one photo of the outside of the store, and today we see Wolfgang's 'Upscale' Steakhouse w/ several lovely photo's of the meal!! Is there an urban/rural bias in the review selections? Or maybe just the shock of the contrast made me think that way

                              No bias. It's a function of camera-readiness and/or ravenous hunger that overwhelms the picture taking instinct. In fact, I am hoping to get beauty shots of Bon Ton chicken in a few weeks when eating around Western Kentucky.

                                Thanks for the feedback, Michael. I do understand the eat..or photograph difficulty! For me the 'eat' usually wins! That steak sure looks good! What time of year are you thinking of the Kentucky tour?
