Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken

Happy National Fried Chicken Day!! I Any excuse to eat fried chicken =)

We ordered thighs and drumsticks, along with "Fries with the works".

The skin was super crispy and well-seasoned (with cayenne pepper…I think).  The meat was very tender and juicy. Pretty much all that I look for in good fried chicken.

The fries with the works = french fries topped with sour cream, cheddar cheese, and bacon bits.  It was amazing!  I would come back for these fries alone! 

 FRIES WITH THE WORKS

FRIES WITH THE WORKS

Being a bit of a germaphobe, I was really excited to see this motion-sensored garbage bin. I wish more places would adopt this trash disposal unit, so we can all avoid touching dirty, germ-infested trash bin lids!

Verdict: A. Clean fast-food-esque joint with good fried chicken and amazing fries.  I would take this over Hill Country Chicken any day of the week!
