Agreed. If there's one thing this godforsaken region does right, it's food.

Are you sure? Can you look a little closer and point me which squares are not fried chicken? Oh, and no pressure, but this CAPTCHA I'm trying to get past expires in two hours....

What? Honey on fried chicken or fried chicken dipped in honey is fantastic. I mean, more so if it's spicy honey or something but it's good!

What a coincidence, I too have human skin! We need to trade tips about how to keep them in good condition, though, because when I'm not wearing it it tends to get all wrinkly and then it dries up and...

(I don't think battering and frying it is going to help any, Red)

But where do you go to get fried chicken?

Chik-fil-A is my default option with high quality fast food fried chicken (though the cult atmosphere among their teenage workforce always weirds me out a little). I haven't been to a KFC in years and years (I think the last time I tried to stop in at one the person at the counter told me "they were out of chicken" and I just forever wrote the place off in that moment).

We've got places like Zaxby's and Raising Cain's around here for chicken but they're a little more yuppie than I prefer. Fried chicken is greasy, blue-collar, comfort food. Those places are trying too hard to appeal to hip college students and DINKs with college degrees.

There's a mom-and-pop fried chicken place about an hour away that I need to try someday. People have been crowing about the place to me for years and the place seems to have accrued a stellar reputation despite being far outside of the city in a small rural town. That place has been in business for over a century so it must be doing something right. And their fried chicken is easily worth the commute, I'm told.

Dammit! Now I'm hungry.

The same general idea can be applied to barbecue and tacos,
but that's even more off-topic than rotisserie chicken that just happens to have some sauce on it

Yes, that is even more off-topic than rotisserie chicken. Unless you're referring to barbecued chicken or chicken tacos.

This is why we need either teleporters or replicators.

(If you like the chicken from some place then get it from there. Don't let anyone tell you any differently. Or if you just want some chicken and it's convenient and close enough.)

Hmm, the #1 hit for "fried chicken" in Toronto on yelp is a place called "Cluck Clucks". I may just have to visit.

Which reminds me, I should try some chicken and waffles. I hear that's a thing.

I make it myself. Serious Eats' recipe, brined in spiced buttermilk, is pretty reliable.

People around here swear by a franchise called "Slim Chickens" which I think is just the worst name for a restaurant.

As Swiss Chalet proved last month, Chalet Sauce is even better on fried chicken.

(I don't particularly like it with their chicken. Which is fine, because it's supposed to be used for the fries and roll.)

The great thing about Chik Fil-A is that although their political opinions are lousy, their food is just as lousy, so it doesn't take any effort whatsoever to avoid them. If only the same could be said for Jimmy John's...

The last time I ate CFA was when we had it catered after a meeting, and I couldn't quite get past the oddly strong pickle tang it had.

They opened one of those around here recently. I wouldn't swear by it but I thought it was at least passable.

I believe that is Chik-fil-A in this context. (So it probably should be CfA in that case.)

Slim Chickens was OK, but in college I preferred Charlie's Chicken, which I guess that location closed. RIP.
