The most difficult thing to find in Hickory, and I've
lived here all of my life, is excellent fried chicken.
Many years ago, Wayne's Restaurant had the best.
The best we've found is Donna's in Hudson, but they usually
only have it on Wednesdays.
The absolute best is Ralphs off of I-95 near the Roanoke Rapids, NC
off ramp, but it's about the same distance from here to Myrtle
Beach. It's good, but not THAT good.
Is there a place we've missed that has the best fried chicken
I know, like bbq, fried chicken is subjective to taste.
Criteria: crispy....not too moist inside, but not dry..
large chicken breasts only....cooked in fresh ,clean oil.
Please don't mention Bojangles, KFC, or any fast food places.
no chicken strips, tenders or nuggets.
O.k....Let's hear it.
This is a sincere request for knowledge you may have of a great fried chicken place.

Thanks for the imput.
I know what you mean about the Hildebran KFC.
We ate there a long time ago after it first opened,
and once was enough for us.
When Kentucy Fried Chicken had their true original recipe,
that was the absolute best, but they changed it and in my
taste bud's opinion, it's just an average tasting fried chicken.
Why they changed it, I'll never know.
I can remember the last original chicken we had. It was somewhere
around Jonson City or Elizabethton Tennessee.
It was simply the best.
Places like Chic-Fil-A, Zackbys, Bojangles, KFC, Popeye's,
Church's, etc., aren't really that good. Good, not excellent.
Your mind never loses the ability to remember a good or bad taste.
I can remember exactly what it tasted like.
Think of taking a bite of a Snickers bar. See?
Your mind remembers that flavor.
I guess there aren't any good chicken places left.
By the lack of any other comments it must be so.

That's just the thing we are talking about. Last Wednesday, I saw a whole truck load of rabbit turds arrive at KFC in Hildebran to be used as stuffing. You be the dude eating rabbit turds.

So you with your registered screen name that can be traced to you are saying that KFC in Hildebran is doing this.
You had better be prepared to prove it. Don't let your alligator mouth overload your ignorant black ass.

It never fails.
Someone posts a Topix question and it always
ends up with a few low class morons adding
their moronic divel. You're scum.
Why don't you people, from Crazy Person on
down, get a life.
Go count your food stamps, clean out that nasty
double-wide, take a bath, see if your welfare
check has come, snort your dope and stay the
hell off of this site.
You're the reason people abort babies.
Why they didn't abort you imbeciles is beyond
Write all of the stupid replies you want.
I'm not coming back to this site to read your
stupid , brainless comments.
What are you people...third grade drop outs.
Your mothers are whores and suck dog cocks.

Tasty Chicken was the best in Hickory for sure. If you are ever on I26 in upstate SC get off at exit 1 and go down to US 76 to eat at a place called Kent's. Very good FC. IMHO best in Hickory area now is in Hildebran off US 70 B&B Royal Foods a little convenience store with a small kitchen. Good chicken and tenders. Not as good as Tasty but worth a drive.

Tenderlion biscuit and a cold RC Cola from B&B is the best quick breakfast in the Hickory area.
#18 Nov 29, 2012
B&B does have the best chicken!
#19 Nov 30, 2012
B&B dos have awesome chicken!

You can try Washburns where "tasty" used to be....The fried chicken there is usually really good but the flavored wings are usually to salty to eat. If you are not afraid you can go up 2 blocks behind tastys and get a fantastic chicken sandwich from a street food vendor on the side of the street. He is only out during warmer weekends but is the best kept secret in hickory

Anyone try the new Mountain Fried Chicken off Highway 70. It is in the old Captain D's building beside the new Captain D's.
