Anywhere near Peekskill for real fried chicken?

I'm looking for some good southern fried chicken. Any suggestions?

  1. The only thing I can think of is Kennedy Fried Chicken at 1020 Main Street (downtown near Division Street). I seem to recall a co-worker once telling me that it was good. I've never been there myself.

    1. Lonnie's fish and chips in Ossining does chicken too

      1. I think mostly all of Westchester is sorely lacking really good fried chicken, it would be a great business venture for someone who knows how to do it right.

        1. Can't vouch for it as I haven't tried it (not very helpful, I know--sorry), but Holy Smoke in Mahopac has buttermilk fried chicken -- they do such a great job with their bbq chicken and their smoked wings (and ribs and pullled pork) that I think there's a decent chance they know what they're doing with fried chicken.

          1. Memphis Mae's in Croton has southern fried chicken. I wouldn't call myself a fried chicken expert (or lover), but I've had it and it is quite good. The sides (cole slaw, mashed, corn salad, greens, fried pickles, etc) are even better. And the beer list is good, too.
