I just had the best fried chicken since I was at the Dixie Cafe and Steak House ,Live Oak, Florida. It was at the Eliza Cafe in downtown Eliza, Ill. Listen to this: they do Catfish and Scored Carp on Fridays. Fried Chicken on Tuesdays.See ya there!

Scored carp is considered a hors doover in Mercer Co. Ill. You get yourself a medium sized carp [bottom feeder fish} and clean it,filet and cut it up in strips and cut slits in strips [as in scoring]. Roll it in flour and cornmeal and fry the hell out of it. Smoking carp is also popular along the mighty Miss.as well. I always found them hard to keep lit.

Brad, they deep fry the scored carp to an unrecognizable dark crusty gob that reminds you of over cooked chicken livers. I would go there for the catfish and have some scored carp to appear local.It's a river thing. jfitz
