There are so many versions of fried chicken all over Atlanta and I want to find the absolute best. I want to hear what you guys have to say. Where do YOU go for fried chicken?

    Well, it might not be the southern fried chicken you seek, but I go to Agave for their Cayenne Poblano Fried Chicken – it’s nice and spicy.

    Btw, the site looks great, Bliss. Keep up the good work!

    It can’t imagine anyone can beat Scott Peacock’s Tuesday night fried chicken at Watershed. It is also the recipe I use at home — overnight in a brine, then the rest of the day soaking in buttermilk, and then skillet-frying in shortening flavored with bacon (he uses lard in the restaurant I think). It is greaseless, moist, flavorful, and I think perfect.

    Son’s Place is great but the chicken isn’t all that special. According to legend “Son” Len Storey uses his father Deacon Burton’s skillets (won in a paternity suit with Burton’s acknowledged children), but the chicken there usually seems deep-fried to me, not skillet-fried, and is usually served at room temperature unless you get there at the beginning of lunch service.

    The Brookwood Grill on Holcomb Bridge Road has the best fried chicken TENDERS I have tasted.
