Fried Chicken in OC

Is there anything else besides KFC in Orange County? I had Pioneer chicken in LA a few weekends ago. It wasn't too bad at all.

  1. I thought most of the Pioneer chicken places went out of business? Which one did you go to? I love their chicken!

          was recently there,

          beat me to it on your post. yeah, ruth's place is it.

        2. If North Orange County isn't too far, I'd highly recommend going to the Hungry Bear in Fullerton. Yes, it's a steakhouse, but the fried chicken there is extremely good. Plus, the cutesy, ole timey atmosphere is fun.

          2219 N Harbor Blvd, Fullerton, CA 92835

          1. How about Knott's Berry Farm Fried Chicken? Drive out to Long Beach for Roscoe's?

            1. I've never been but Rosie's Authentic Soul Food in Foothill Ranch servers fried chicken
