Fried Chicken - Near Fairfield

As a transplant from the South, I'm hoping to find a good southern fried chicken place near Fairfield, willing to travel, maybe New Haven has some good soul food? Can anyone recommend a place? I'm really craving good fried chicken, about to book a plane ticket to get a fix.

  1. Drumstik BBQ on Main St in Bridgeport is the best around.

      Agree with you on the Drumstik. IT is not as good as when I make it myself but for store bought it is not bad. Jay

    2. Rootsman kitchen on Park Ave just south of 95/Railroad bridge . . but pretty sure they only make if after lunch time

      1. the fried chicken at taste of charleston in norwalk was pretty good. wash it down with some fried okra and fried green tomatoes to complete the meal.

        1. You said you'd go to New Haven; if so, Mama Mary's Soulfood has great fried chicken, et. al.

          Across the street from Edge of the Woods market on Whalley Avenue; I usually park in there and walk across the street.

          And I like Drumstik BBQ for their roasted chicken; I never had their fried, but I bet it's good.

          1. My Vote is with Drumstik - best I've had around here.
