I've got this odd little personal tradition. Once a team wins three games in the World Series, I watch every game thereafter with some fried chicken in front of me. (It started in '96, in honor of Wade Boggs.)
I've found quite a few good fry joints around - notably Alexis Chicken Shack, my personal favorite. For take out, there's Chicken in a Box on Gentilly. Mama's Tasty Foods and Chicken Box are decent. For sit-down restaurants, I've tried and enjoyed Jacques-Imo's, Coop's, and Ye Olde College Inn. (Strangely enough, I thought the fried chicken was poor and overly dry at Dunbar's. The red beans made up for it, however.)
Can anyone else recommend good restaurants for fried chicken? I figure there has to be quite a few more. Take-out is preferred, unless if they have a TV over the bar.
