Looking for good fried chicken in OBX
OMG- there is only ONE place on the OBX to get great fried chicken. Go to the Rundown Cafe in Kitty Hawk (on the beach road near the Hilton) on Monday nights. You'll know you are in the right place because EVERYONE in the restaurant will be eating friend chicken!! I also recommend the seasoned green beans and mashed potatoes for your 2 sides... but I warn you, get there EARLY! They do not take reservations, your whole party has to be there to be seated, and it fills up FAST.
We finally made it to The Rundown Cafe's Monday night fried chicken last night and it was great! You were right everyone else there was having the fried chicken. It was crispy perfectly seasoned, not greasy... perfection. The sides were good too. The garlic mashed potatoes were good as were the green beans, with little bits of ham. My Mom is a collard greens nut and ordered the greens as both of her sides. She gave them the thumbs up. Dinner starts at 5pm and we were there by 5:15 and the place was packed. Get there early. Now I have to wait til Friday to try Kill Devil Grill's fried chicken. The Rundown Cafe will be hard to beat.
