Best Fried Chicken in Athens

batdown | Mar 22, 200712:38 PM     13

Here's the deal fellow hounds: my SO and I have been on a serious detox diet for a little while, and it ends Saturday, just in time for an open-bar event we'll be attending at Trump's! We have plans for breakfast and dinner that day, but I really want some FRIED CHICKEN for lunch. I've had fried chicken at the likes of mama's boy and fivestar, but what I am looking for is a little place where I can get a nice, greasy, delicious 3 piece with some macaroni and a biscuit, okra, green beans, you know the basics.

I've never been to Weaver D's or had the chicken at Wilson's or many other places. Athens hounders, please steer me towards the most off-the-hook fried chicken the classic city has available. I'm looking for something akin to the chicken that inspired this video:

I moved here about 6 months ago from NC and I'm not willing to wade through every fried chicken option - so what's number one?

Thanks in advance!
