If it wasn't for the Roadfood.com reference, I would never have stopped at Chicken on the Way. Approaching the building, one can get turned off by the real hole-in-the-wall looks. It is boxed in by a Vietnamese restaurant and a drive-in hamburger joint. However, one should definitely persevere and go in.

The menu board list the various fish and chicken options, including a two-piece box, a three-piece box, and a hungry man five-piece box (priced at $7 as of this visit). A hushpuppy is included, and you can buy more at 45 cents each.

Another good point: they are open until midnight. This is truly a take-out type of place, as there are only two picnic tables outside, immediately adjacent to the street. The staff, while not too friendly, are very efficient. At times the line goes out the door, another indication that the food is worth it. For the chicken alone I would go back, as it really ranked among the best I have ever eaten. Enjoy!

The huge chicken breast and ample drumstick virtually eclipse the rest of the meal that comes in this box: French fries and a spherical corn fritter.

The lush, crunchy skin that envelops each piece of this chicken, shattering at first bite, is irresistible ... and it makes silverware irrelevant.

Most people carry away their boxes of chicken; but a few picnic tables are provided (visible at the far right of the photo).
