best place for fried chicken in Raleigh?
We are hosting a group from Japan next week and are planning to have a potluck of traditional American food. I would love to bring some great fried chicken, any suggestions on where to obtain this in Raleigh? I would like to avoid the chains . . .
I ate at J & J Fish ONCE. I've heard Joyce's in Fuquay is the place to go. Shrimp Boats and Hog Heaven in Durham do good fried chicken. I think Bojangles is way better than Smithfields.
I don't know if it's the best place but I've had fried chicken from the Barbeque Lodge on Capital Blvd. on a couple of occasions and thought it was quite good.
The Old Place in Bear Creek, NC just west of the Triangle has the best fried chicken I've had anywhere, much less the Triangle area itself. It's about as close to grandma's country cooking you can find in these parts too.
In second place for the Triangle, I'd say Joyce's in Fuquay-Varina.
