Where I've found gizzards, so far... Tue, 05/17/11 12:50 PM (permalink)
In my book, the best gizzards are breaded lighty and pressure fried. The precooked then fried are too soft. I like a little crunch left in mine.
Currently in St Louis, and the best ones I've had were at Porter's Chicken on Big Bend Rd. They have regular and spicy. I like the regular better. I've had them at Lee's, which are also in town, and they are of the softer variety.
I do check every time I go into a Safeway at the deli counter. Sometimes they have them, and am sure they will cook up a batch while you shop. They are on the soft side.
There are/were gizzards to be found at the north end of Long Beach WA at Doc's in Ocean Park.
The best "Award Winning" gizzards I have had can be found at the Seabreeze Tavern just outside of Seaside, OR. Located a few blocks from Hwy 101 and Hwy 26 towards Seaside. Large portion. Cold beer. Perfect.
I make them at home when I need a fix. Flour breaded with the normal spices. Fried golden brown with oil. Nothing fancy but fills the bill.

         Welcome!
         
        I love those fried nuggets of rubber.  Used to get a bucket (read: small box) of them at Pioneer Chicken in different locations throughout the Los Angeles area.
         
        Pioneer Chicken is virtually gone so I haven't had them in many years.

              Based on GCG's website I suspect it's hot sauce or G-sauce.

                Aha!  Hot sauce would work.

                  Next time we go to Dinah's, you should check out their gizzard and liver meals Mar.  Dine in or take out.

                    When I fry chicken, I also fry gizzards.  It is hard to find just gizzards, what I can find is gizzards & hearts.  I save the hearts for the cats.  I would love to find just gizzards in Indianapolis.
                    The only places in IN, I have found good fried gizzards are a service stations, one in Madison, IN & one between Bedford & Mitchell In on SR 37.  They fry frozen gizzards, but I ask them to fry mine fresh, not as good as fresh gizzards,but still good.

                      1bbqboy, it is only fair to link to my review as well as use the photo:-)  http://www.kansastravel.o.../olathegochickengo.htm The G suace really makes the gizzard work.
                       
                      The gizzards at Go Chicken Go are good for fast food, but for better gizzards in the KC metro area, I recomend Stroud's - cover them with gravy and add a little Louisiana Hot Sauce.
                       
                      I also like Gomer's Fried Chicken in Kansas CIty, Missouri, but usually get the hearts there.

                        Oh, that is a "half" order in the box.

                          Get them here, but you have to wait for them.  Nothing express about a twenty minute wait:
