Where is best fried chicken and BBQ in Shenadoah Valley/Staunton VA?

Hi - traveling with 9 year old granddaughter from Baltimore via I-70 to Mount JacksonNew Market and Massanutten Water Park then to Staunton a few days and then to Warm Springs in Bath County a few days to soak in Jefferson Pools. Last few times we were dying to find great southern fried chicken and/or BBQ. We found bland, watery and very greasy. After reading a ton of reviews I narrowed down Log Cabin BBQ vs. Hank's for BBQ and for chicken was recommended Southern Kitchen - which did not look appealing at all from the pics....shudder....short of finding the nearest Royal Farm store - IS there a good place for some good southern cooking? Thanks!

  1. Hi Neighbor! in old town Strasburg has some great homestyle fried chicken.

    Edit: when I last went (about two years ago) they also cooked great sides, and it feels like you're in an old farmhouse to some extent.
