The best fried chicken in the world is at the Primadonna Hotel/Casino on I-15 on the California/Nevada state line. I worked there in 1991-1993 and it was so damned good! It had a slight sweet taste and was a dark golden brown color. They served it sometimes in the employee cafeteria (rarely). The employees were not allowed to buy it in the restaurant, but I did anyway
If you are coming from LA to Vegas by car, stop there and eat (the chicken!) I am from the American South and I live in Asia now, so I know with what I speak.
