Chicken Man in Fresno

If you live in the Fresno area and like fried chicken at it's finest you have to try Rudy Jr.'s Chicken Man restaurant. The business started in the 60's on 1st. street north of Olive. In the 80's they moved to their present location on Weber Ave. just north of Clinton. The chicken dinners are exactly the same as they were when I first visited them in 1970. I won't go into the other dishes they offer at this time but believe me it's all good. Your dinner is cooked to order so it will take maybe 25-30 miniutes but the food will be so hot and fresh you can't touch your teeth to it for 10 miniutes after you get it. They are open for lunch and dinner from Tuesday--Saturday . If you happen to be traveling north on Hwy. 99 take the Clinton Ave. off ramp E.one 8th mile to Weber Ave. (first left turn) then one half block, take a right and it will be on your left 100 feet. I love fried chicken and I have yet to find anything to beat Rudy's! There is good fried chicken in Fresno but the quality of the chicken at Chicken Man and Rudy's resolve regarding the changing of the fry oil makes this establishment outstanding!
