Jay's Krispy Fried Chicken; Sikeston, MO - Awesome!

I was on my way home from New Orleans a few weeks ago and stopped in Sikeston. I drove by Lamberts and they were major crowded so I drove around town for a bit. I seemed to recall reading a previous post about a BBQ place in old town so I took a look. I wasn't able to find it so I decided to head north through town intending to catch I-55 a bit north of town. What a great streak of luck that brought me. I was cruising N. Main St and I saw a slew of cars parked around a little cafe called Jays. I saw that they had a fried chicken buffet (Sunday) and the place was loaded w/ young and old. So many people that I was excited to find they had a drive thru. I rolled up and chose my off and on again favorite; chicken gizzards - large order, large fries, and a large Coke....yep..under $6. I typically would not post a note about chicken gizzards or livers but I am telling you that they were the most awesome gizzards I have ever eaten. They were lightly breaded and every single one in the nearly 1# box was so tender, I thought I was eating bits of chicken thighs. I have never had a gizzard so sweet and tender but I will darn soon when I get back down there. Hands down the best I ever ate. Give this place a crack as I bet that buffet is loaded with some other awesome chciken and sides.
