OUT OF CONTENTION:  Gus Famous Fried Chickens good, but not from Arkansas

  • OUT OF CONTENTION: Gus' Famous Fried Chicken's good, but not from Arkansas
I'm actually taking a bit of a trip today — it's two-fold. Working on a piece for an upcoming issue of Arkansas Wild (the latest just hit newsstands and you really should check it out) and while up there I plan to check out a claim.

See, everyone has an opinion about fried chicken. So far, the best fried chicken I've had has to be that from AQ Chicken House in Springdale. I love what they do to chicken at the 65th Street Diner here in Little Rock and my chicken-and-waffles over at B-Side. That photo above doesn't count for us, I guess — it's from Gus' Famous Fried Chicken in Memphis.

The chicken I'm checking out today is at the Monte Ne Inn Chicken Restaurant, rumored to be the best. I'm going to see. While I'm on the road, feel free to discuss your favorite fried chicken.
