      I second this. Note this is not the chain Church's Fried Chicken, but a family run place. Also: takeout only, call ahead or be prepared to wait, as the chicken is fried to order.

    2. Consider BBQ Chicken in Fort Lee or Cliffside Park......Korean Fried Chicken ....deep fried in Olive Oil

        I know this might sound like a weird place where you would find great fried chicken but the Foodtown in Cedar Grove on Pomton Ave ( Rt .23) has some the best I've ever had.

          Not weird at fact I believe you can find great food in many surprising individual locations amongst chains/markets, the ShopRite in Paramus does a very good job as well...right out of the fryer the chicken is very good. It's also a great deal when they have it on sale ...2 eight piece portions for $9.99...regularly $7.99 for one. In the cold food prepared case you can get 4 legs and 4 thighs for 4.99 everyday.
