Randall's Fried Chicken

Anybody tried this? I saw it mentioned several times in recent months in the Press blogs - very favorably - so I thought I'd check it out. I was very pleasantly surprised. For supermarket fried chicken it is remarkably good and not bad when rated against non-supermarket chicken. In fact, right now, it's my go to place. My nearest Frenchy's outlet is disappointing and it's a long drive over to Scott St. to the original or any other fried chicken joint of note.

I have noted a little strange taste - I'm guessing from the cooking oil? It's noticeable on the first bite but doesn't bother me after that. I've tried it at 3 different stores, 4 times so far, and got it every time. Not offensive, just a little strange, to me.

One thing I like is, if you don't want to order a la carte (I just get dark meat pieces), you can get a reasonably priced plate and have a choice of sides other than the usual mashed potatoes, cole slaw, french fries, etc.; something like green beans or a pasta salad.
