I've made my new years resolution to eat more fried chicken a reality thus far and have enjoyed my usual stop to Spicy's BBQ in Bellport for their great 1/2 chicken "dinner", a stop at Biscuits and BBQ in Mineola for undercooked fried chicken (the chicken *IS* cooked through, but not enough to render out the now globby fat under the skin), KFC (yeah, KFC), Chicken Delight in Westbury (so-so), Popeyes in Hempstead that's usually good enough, Wings 'N Things in Hempstead that's good if not great, and other places including a newly renovated place called Chicken Carnival in North Merrick.
The chicken here at Chicken Carnival isn't really a "southern fried" version, but just fried chicken, not greasy, not overly crispy and not too 'smelly chicken-y' either.
They seem to do a good amount of business of mostly take-out and delivery I guess and I can see why.
Has anyone been?
