      I know- I forgot and I couldn't change it- Birmingham

    2. I keep hearing good things about Baskits. I'm tempted to give them a go this weekend.
      If you get over there, let us know what you think.

      1. The J. Clyde has very juicy, crispy chicken fingers. I don't know if they're the best in town, but they are quite good. (actually just posted about this on another thread).

        1. The very best in the entire world are at the Tavern at the Summit (not to be confused with the Village Tavern, also at the Summit). These are the best chicken fingers I've ever had in my LIFE, and I will be shocked if you don't agree. You gotta try them. They come with shoestring fries that are also excellent. If you think you'll have room, start with their spinach and artichoke dip.

            We tried Baskits.....The chicken fingers there are smaller and less crunchy than at Tavern at the Summit. They are coated in a very "herbal" coating that I didn't particularly like. The fries there were terrible. Cold and greasy. The manager was a gem, though. Very nice guy. Shook hands with us as we were leaving, and invited us back. Something you don't see everyday. I'm still voting for the chicken fingers Tavern at the Summit. Not to be missed.

          2. Thought I'd submit this photo of the chicken fingers platter at Tavern at the Summit. I contend that THESE are the best chicken fingers in the Ham. Crispy-crunchy on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside. My wife and I split this and still take some home. I also always get a cold Harp lager or two to wash them down with, a match that is hard to top. TATS fries are very good, too. Shoestring with a nice seasoning mix, cooked perfectly.
