Anyone remember Morty's? They had a handful of locations in the Baltimore area. All of the locations closed down in the 90's.

Morty's served up some of the most delicious fried chicken and ranch fries I have ever had. Golden brown, huge pieces, and just fantastic. Now, Morty's chicken can only be had at a place called Snyder's Cafe & Deli. I was there last fall, and though they call it Morty's chicken, it's just not the same. The chicken my wife and I had was dreadfully overcooked - what was once a wonderful golden crispy crust was dark brown - nearly black, and the meat was dry and tasteless. Damn I miss that good old Morty's chicken! Anyone else remember Morty's?

Yes! I do remember Morty's chicken.  The first location that I remember was on Liberty Road, then they opened another location on Reisterstown Rd.  And the chicken was the best ever!  The size, the flavor, the crust.  There has never been anything like it.  And my friend is still talks about there ranch fries.  I don't know why they ever went out of business.  The size of the pieces were huge!  I don't know where they got pieces so large, but one piece was enough to fill you up.    I am going to go see if Morty's receipe is on google.
