SF's Best Restaurants for Chicken?

Dave MP | Nov 5, 2013 02:02 PM

I'm trying to think of a place to bring friends who are coming to town this weekend. One of them really likes chicken (but doesn't eat other meat or fish). Last time they visited, we went to Limon, which was a big hit. So I'm trying to think of other places in SF proper where chicken is the focus. What am I missing? I'm probably looking more for hole-in-the-wall/inexpensive places, and not mid- or high-end.

Zuni (probably too expensive for this occasion, but it should be on this list)

Goood Frickin Chicken - I always get the shawarma or falafel, which is great. Never actually tried the straight-up chicken.

Shin To Bul Yi - I like this place on Taraval for Korean Fried chicken. What other places have it?

Toyose - Another Korean chicken option.

Limon - Great for Peruvian chicken, but we went here last time. This vibe and price-point are perfect though for what I'm looking for.

San Tung - Too crowded, and I dislike most of the menu (with the exception of the chicken).

I think there are a number of places that specialize in Southern fried chicken, so would be great to know about those. But really I'm looking for other places, maybe off the radar, that are worth the trip for the chicken.
