KFC Jonesin' -- Good Fried Chicken?

Andrew C | Mar 17, 2006 09:43 PM

I've been jonesing for some good fried chicken. I really like the taste of KFC, but can't patronize the chain. I have my reasons -- personal politics.

But this is board about food -- so my question is, can anyone suggest a good KFC substitute? I've been all over the city looking for one.

I tried: Maroons on 16th. Sylvia's in Harlem. Amy Ruth's in Harlem. Charles Southern Kitchen in Harlem. Any number of Kennedy Fried Chickens. Dallas BBQ. Bone Lick BBQ. Popeyes. Roy Rogers. But nothing seems to hit the spot.

With the exception of the last two, the fried chicken is pretty basic. Not bad, but I want some more spice to it. Do I have to compromise my principles to get what I want?
