RE: THE BEST FRIED CHICKEN
There was a thread about NJ Fried Chciken a couple of months ago, I think it was in "Where Should I Eat". Anyway, as I recall, no one was able to come up with a winner, we all sort of agreed that NJ is not a great place for Fried Chicken. My suggestion was Roselle Fried Chicken, in Roselle which is the best I've found in Union County. But it's not even a restaurant, let alone a buffet, it's just takeout.
As for buffets, you might try Town Tavern Country Inn. It's at 673 Macopin Rd in West Milford. I was there about 3-4 years ago, a very good assortment of "American" food. I don't specifically recall the Fried Chicken, good or Bad, but I'm sure it's part of the buffet. I thought they had a website, but if they do, I couldn't find it just now.
Let us know if you come up with anything. I love Fried Chicken, I'm just not in the right state for it. --Ken
