Fried Chicken

This, fowl enthusiasts, is where to go for the straightforward, red-blooded-American style fried chicken. Reel ‘m Inn does it well with minimal fuss: This is a dive bar, and they fry their chicken as simply as they might make a gin-and-tonic. What comes out is a thickly crusted bird (you choose which parts) that crunches deafeningly over a tender interior. We recommend you alternate bites with sips of your cold PBR, the drink of choice at this neighborhood joint. And feel free to make a mess, the way fried chicken was meant to be eaten—no one will so much as look up from the Keno game in progress.
