This is some of the best fried chicken I have ever eaten. If there's a line (and usually there is), order yourself a beer and hang outside. You'll work up a huge appetite!

The chicken's a little spicy so get some of their awesome sweet iced tea to wash it down.

Love the three piece dark! I substitute potato salad for the slaw! Sweet tea is truly the Southern House Wine!
