I had TopHat a few times because in my office there was those who thought it was something, the rest of us thought it was greasy garbage. The paper sacks it came in would be saturated in the nasty 2 week old grease they would fry it in.
It seems that most of Columbus was in agreement and the place closed from lack of business.

They were right... truly delicious food, and a Columbus Georgia original.

Fortson did seems to be a ways out when I was a kid... Cat's Eye Bar seemed way out in the country.

The original owners died and Top Hat declined over the years.

So you didn't like Top Hat... in it's heyday many of us did and we'll just never agree on that fact, so why bother to argue it, pal?

I remember Top Hat chicken very well but I don't think it was that special but its nice you enjoyed it Will.
Personally, I think the best fried chicken today in Columbus can enjoyed at Ruth Ann's Restaurant.

Okay, part of it may have been nostalgia and a certain cool "Beatnik" vibe the place had too, but yes, I did enjoy the chicken, Jim.

Ruth Ann's... been a long time since I ate there, Jim, but you're sure giving me a hankering to stop by there real soon!

Ah, speaking of the Cat's Eye Bar, I just noticed some of the brightest and best of the current Columbus-Phenix City music scene will be putting on a show there Friday night... at Mama's Pub, which is the very same little cinder block building the Cat's Eye was in back in the 1970s-80s:

Mama's Pub
7918 Veterans Pkwy, Columbus, Georgia 31909

8pm sharp. SeanRox opens with swampy acoustic groove on the barbecue tip... followed by the classic sounds of Stan Edwards & Marsha Short's stellar Southern trip through Fiddler's Blues.

Classic venue. Affordable Prices. Let's party like it's 1964... roadhouse-style...

Yeah, Matt and Pepper old friends over the last decade or so, have really spiffed the place up as Mama's Pub, while still keeping that old roadhouse style, pretty much based on the way Del Ranch has been kept going, and is becoming quite a little music venue.

As for Bibb Mill, I didn't get "indoctrinated" into that little world until I moved to Bibb City in 1985, when so many friends of mine from the mill (the old Jordan Mill) were living, and grew up, there.

I lived in the big townhouse at 3226 River Avenue, right over the river, where the Riverwalk passes now... the upstairs bedroom had a stupendous view of the river, and I was sure one day all those houses would be refusbished and sold to doctors and lawyers... instead someone decided it would be better to demolish them, and now River Avenue has nothing but the big watertower and a huge field where our houses were, overlooking the Riverwalk.

Thanks for the info, Ted. Ahh what memories.
I ate at that buffet place across from Macon road Barbeque, think it was called "Capt. Tom's", worst damn food I ever had, my stomach exploded that night in bed. Surely it MUST be closed!
I noticed last night that a nightclub has opened in the old Captain Tom's building on Macon Road, the name of the place I can't tell you, as the lettering on the sign seems impossible for me to figure out.

Good crowd was there, and they were advertising some very cheap draft beer prices.

Speaking of "vanished", I don't know the details, but as I was riding out macon Road today I noticed the KFC on the corner of Forest Road is shut down, sign gone and everything.

Very weird feeling seeing that, as that KFC had been there since I was a small child.

Hello Reef!

Happy Christmas to you and yours and all that good stuff...

Now the old Taco Bell on Victory Drive has closed, they demolished the favorite whore motel Candlelight Motel and built a new Taco Bell where it once was.

Victory Drive is changing slowly, isn't quite the funhouse circus it used to be.

I see Zaxby's is well ahead of the rest. Don't understand ChickfilA being polled so high though.

Some of the best fried chicken I find is really the non-chain selections still available out there.

Last night while gassing up at Big Cat on Highway 80 (the one at the edge of the Ladonia "main drag" headed on to Crawford) I tried a few pieces of the chicken they were serving, along with a bunch of potato logs.

This was like 3am and the chicken was freshly fried and delicious... a nice change from the usual late night eatery fare out that way, which is nothing but Waffle House by that point.

Now, of course Waffle House is some fine times and the ladonia crew is the best in town, but, still... fried chicken and potato logs, fresh, at 3am!

One would be hard pressed to find that ANYWHERE in the Chattahoochee Valley at that hour... Kudos, Big Cat!

I have maintained from the beginning that Zaxby's has the best chicken. Glad to see the majority of others in this area agree with me.
Zaxby's does put out some great chicken, but really, all of those on the list are worth checking out when the moods for different approaches to the age old Southern art of Fried Chicken is desired.

Ah yes, the old Juwan Knight Club, then Dallas right down the street, and Jacopa Club and Del Ranch just over the river!

Back when Country Music was still King in these parts!
