Boo. Hiss. Everyone worth their chicken-batter knows that Babe's is the best. And don't let anyone tell you it's the same recipe - cause it aint! Plus, you don't have to deal with all the Highland Park Bush-lovin' chicken slummers. Ok, really just kidding there.
Best Fried Chicken - 2008
Bubba's Cooks Country
The Observer has given this place plenty of attention in the past, but still, after all these years the Texaco service station turned Art Deco restaurant remains the best place to get some authentic fried chicken. Like all comfort food, including its sister restaurant Babe's Chicken Dinner House, Bubba's fried chicken recalls Sunday dinner at home. The batter is gold, thick and crunchy, the chicken tender and juicy. The side vegetables could stand a little more attention, but there's not a whole lot to complain about at Bubba's, which is why we still love it.
