      Try the new-ish Earl Abel's on Old Austin Hwy. Their old location had great fried chicken, as well as pan gravy and terrific mashers. Please let us Southeners know what you find.
      Has anyone tried the fried chicken at 410 Diner or DeWeise's? Report?

          I agree, their BBQ sucks, but the fried chicken is good.

            Mr. and Mrs. G's all the way. Awesome chicken plus black eyed peas sweet potatoes, and greens. If you go get some dessert it's all awesome.

            Earl Abel's is very reliable. They make a great cracklin' gravy and have excellent mashers. Sinful, old fashion desserts like your grandma used to make on Sunday.

            You might also like the fried chicken at the Pig Stand on Broadway. It is cheap and has a good crust if you like a thicker or crunchier crust. Not for everyone, but I like it much better than any of the large chains.

              i don't get to the board as often as i like, but you might want to give radicke's on ww white rd. they serve jalapeno fried chicken (thighs only, if i remember correctly). monday's feature is chicken and dumplings, just like my mid-western grandman used to make.
