Does good fried chicken exist in So. NH?

I cannot seem to find any... and KFC is not an option.

  1. With the demise of Premier Palette, I think we are might try one of the SE Asian places in Lowell for gai yang.

    1. Don't know if it's still as good as it's under new owners, but Carmen's Chicken was ALWAYS really great.

      1. How about Chicken N Chips In Nashua? Ive only been once but it was decent fried chicken and potatoes.

          I'm guessing the OP wants real fried you get in the south. Chicken N Chips is not that. It's a bizarre chicken tender like concoction.

            They have real fried chicken on the bone. "delicious old fashioned fried chicken on the bone"

              Jesus I would give my left arm just for some POPEYE'S!!!!

        2. Have you tried Cracker Barrel's chicken? It's pretty good.

              Why the sarcasm? Have you tried it?

              From their menu:

              Homestyle Chicken
              Starting at 11:00 a.m. every Sunday, enjoy two chicken breast fillets dipped in fresh buttermilk and hand-breaded in our kitchen. Served with choice of two vegetables.

                I have actually eaten at a Cracker Barrel and the food was pretty godawful, not to mention the hideous store that you have to walk through to get to the restaurant. Just my opinion though. There's an extensive discussion of this place in the Chains board.

                  I have only set foot in 3 chains in my life.... and none were good experiences. THANKFULLY CB was not one, I have heard horror stories about the "gift shop" alone.

          1. Well, it's a bit further South, but see this post about Jacqueline's in Lawrence, MA- it's worth the trip!
