Best fried chicken in Connecticut?
best fried chicken in connecticut?
No question in my mind whatsoever:
Ancona's Supermarket, Route 7, Ridgefield.
Yes, I know it is a supermarket. But is fantastic. Make sure to get it fresh at the counter adjoining the deli. If the chicken looks like it has been hanging out, just ask for a new batch and they will get it for you. You can get it either skin on or skin off. Your choice.
I truly think it sets the gold standard for fried chicken (except of course for my own homemade).
If you happen to be there at dinnertime, the same counter has some very good quality meals (prime rib, roast turkey, baby back ribs) as well.
Anyone try The Chicken Joint in Plainville (formerly in Berlin/Kensington) ?
From what I hear, the hands-on owner really brags about his fried chicken! He also does a lot of smoked food on-premises.
I look forward to anyone's answer re: Chicken Joint in Plainville because I pass by there on my way to Saint's for awesome chili cheese dogs.
I hear there's a great place in Bristol, CT called Greer's and I believe I've flat out asked about that place on this board but no one replied.
Just to throw this out there but...don't knock Popeye's...I love their fried chicken...there's one in Hartford just off I84.

Grier's is great. Odd location for sure, everything is to go, but the chicken is very good, and the fries, mashed w/gravey and coleslaw are all good too. This place is dangerously close to my house, but I've been good and limit my visits to once or twice a year ! Price is very good too!
i know this is an old post. but sadly the Chicken Joint closed in Plainville... it was great while it lasted. rumor is the building has an impossible landlord. Frascone's an Italian place is there now.
