Where would one find the best fried chicken in the Twin Cities?

    Well, I've temporarily sworn off fried chicken, so I can't honestly vouch for it these days, but this time last year I thought Skinner's was pretty good, for the price. I'm not sure I'd drive across town for it, but if you're in the neighborhood and you don't mind dining in a dive with a 20 minute wait, Skinner's is the place for you. They have a small patio, too, which is nice this time of year.


    Please report back, especially if you find another place with great chicken.

        Unfortunately, the one in Minneapolis closed last year. Any other MSP recommendations?
