    Best fried chicken over all the rest Crowns Fried Chicken .

    They are mostly in the North Eastern States New England ,New York ,New Jesey PA,Wshington D.C. and a few other states.

    They are as good as Chicken Delight which started in the 1950's and there are very few left in the USA.

    Church's gets my vote, mainly for their biscuits and fried okra.

    All these restaurants make incredibly good chicken, but the oils they're frying in will kill you. They should post a warning: "Do not eat here more than once a month."

    Ya, I know - "shut-up and go away," right?

    I love chicken as long as its not kentuck, red rooster or any takeaways. I think of them as dog food like mcdonalds.... Although that would be insulting our dogs. Sorry

    Interesting hub
