Fried Chicken At Its Best!
Here in Southern Indiana, we feel the best fried chicken is served at the small restaurant/tavern combinations that have been around for a long time. many people around here think the best of the best is served at The Chicken Place in Ireland, Indiana, which is about 5 miles down the road from Jasper, Indiana, a German settlement known for great food. The Chicken Place has been around since at least the 1950s, maybe longer, and they have a secret recipe that is unlike any that I have ever tasted. This is definitely not the broasted style chicken or from one of the chain restaurants. They use huge pieces of chicken with a heavy coating, served hot, yet that is moist and definitely tastes different than others. Also they are known for their fried chicken livers and gizzards, and don't miss their german fries and german potato salad. It is also known for its huge frosted mugs of beer, and if you go during St Patty's day to Ireland, Indiana, you can drink it green. The place is nothing fancy and it hasn't changed much in 50 years, but if you go on Friday or Saturday evenings, you can expect to wait for awhile to be seated, as people drive for many miles to eat here. I don't think you will be disappointed!
