Fried Chicken

Anyone know of a good place to get southern fried chicken in NY? My friends and I would be willing to go to any borough for a wing or breast of crispy, succulent goodness. Thanks and happy eating this weekend, hounds!

      1. Piece of Chicken (take-out only), 45th just east of 9th.

        1. Pies-n-Thighs in W'burg. That's all you need to know. They'll have you covered for anything that involves raising your cholesterol.

          Sadly, they're temporarily closed (moving to a new location). Keep your eyes open for a re-opening this summer.

          1. Cosign on Pies-n-Thighs!

            I also like 5-Spot in Fort Greene, more for the whole selection of Southern Food also Ruth's Soul Food also on Myrtle in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area.
            but PnT's is a really good look especially becuz it's a made to order type joint.
            You have to wait for it but its worth it.
            Where is it going to move to?

            this link still works but its from 2003 NY magazine's best of 2003 Fried Chicken list.
            some places may or may not exist anymore, Maroon's is mentioned first.
