Joe's Fried Chicken Listed as 'BEST' in NewTimes.....

  • 5

Joe's Stone Crabs' fried chicken was listed as the No. 1 fried chicken in our area in Miami New Times.....They did a "Top 10".....and it was an interesting read......

Don't normally think of South Florida for fried chicken....but its nice to know that its available....and where it can be found.....Of course I'm fortunate as my mother-in-law is from South Georgia.....and we she visits....the fried chicken, peppery cube steak, mashed potatos, green beans and hamhocks are on the menu....and so are the pounds....

  1. Surprised they beat out Publix for a commercial prep. Wonder how they differ?

    1. I think they were talking about fried chicken that comes from restaurants......I've eaten the fried chicken at Joe's....and from Publix.....both very good....but can't really compare Joe's to Publix...Joe's is hand-breaded...dipped in buttermilk....and served on your plate...hot n fresh....

      Publix's fried chicken is also good.....Also hand-breaded (no other way to do it)....and tossed int he fryer.....and wished vaya con dios y buen suerte......

      Again...both....good....I've eaten both....many, may times....But can't compare the cooking staff at Joe's to Publix.....And Joes is a better deal at $5.95....LOL.....

        Very true. Publix's fried chicken bites and strips are pretty great, but Joe's is a great choice and a greater deal.

        1. re: Icantread

          Are the chickens any good, or just the batter and frying techniques? Are these "real" chickens or the typica,l fattened up/can't move, 21st century factory farmed ones?

          Thank you so much.

          Will have to stop next time I am passing through.
