Fried Chicken in SF
What local restaurants am I missing for Southern style fried chicken? (real restaurants, not chains like Popeye's or KFC)
re: Robert Lauriston
I haven't, alas, and realized I should've mentioned it in my post. The previous location, I always liked the chicken and the cornbread, and the rest of the sides were acceptable.
I'm bummed to see it's gone downhill, though. They were never very good with handling large crowds, that's for certain.
About once a month Maverick does a special menu called "Southern Fried Night". I went to the last one and really enjoyed it. One person in our party had the fried chicken, and it was quite good.
I had the Chicken Fried Steak and it was awesome. But it was a particular kind - double thick and iron skillet fried - extremely "grandma" / homestyle. It was not at all the deep fried, crunchy batter that is common out here.
I would definitely recommend giving them a call to find out when the next Southern Fried Night is and making a reservation.
PS - BlueJay cafe has gone way downhill and is not recommended. As nice as the people at Hard Knox Cafe are and as much as I really wanted to like it...the food just isn't good.

I would tend to agree with you on most of their dishes, but I love their fried chicken. The rest of their dishes aren't really good or bad, just under seasoned, IMO.
Apparently Mel's has fried chicken, but I wouldn't advocate eating there. Just adding it to the list.
Q has decent fried chicken, Front Porch is defenitely my favorite!
