Any suggestions for good fried chicken right here in Fairfield County, CT? Stew Leonard's is inconsistent at best, and they don't use the skin. Popeye's would be great if I didn't have to travel to NYC.
Alipset, if you're still around, steer clear of Patty's Pantry, exit 16 off I-84 near Southbury, CT. This is a place we've passed a few times and always wondered how good it was. I found this quote on Merchantcircle.com:If you are traveling on Route 84 through CT, be sure to stop off exit 16 at Patty's Pantry. Real french fries, excellent fried chicken and the macaroni and cheese on friday are the best around....
Amy brought some home tonight, and it was mediocre at best. The chicken looked a lot better than it tasted, but it wasn't very juicy, and the breasts and wings were pitifully undersized. The mac & cheese was pasta shells with cakey cheddar, and the potato wedges looked scrumptious but were too potatoey and dry.
Friends, should I just give up on finding really
good fried chicken in CT? Please help...
P.S. Edited to show the evidence -- we ate all of it, though it definitely netted a C/C- in all areas:Doggydaddy
, steer clear, my friend!
