Mary Hoopa’s House of Fried Chicken and Oysters – Atlanta, GA

I’ve been thinking about Mary Hoopa’s House of Fried Chicken & Oysters, for about three months.  Maybe longer.  I knew it was coming, as I’m a fan of Chef Robert Phalen and his One Eared Stag, and, some time last year, I heard that he was opening a fried chicken place, serving his “once-a-week” fried […]

K & K Soul Food – Atlanta, GA

Today’s lunch is at another spot sent to me from the pages of Garden N Gun – K&K Soul Food.  (It’s like these pages speak to me – “if we fry it, you will come.”)  K & K has been in business for fifty years, and I’ve been seeing it on one version of my […]

OJ’s Diner – Greenville, SC

Yet another tip from the Garden n Gun Fried Chicken Bucket List, OJ’s Diner was noted for fried chicken that’s “moist, with super crispy skin.” Those four words were enough to draw me in.  As we were heading south through South Carolina, a lunch stop in Greenville seemed in order.  This is an old-school cafeteria […]

LT’s Wings & Other Things – Atlanta, GA

Another find from Garden & Gun’s Fried Chicken Bucket List, LT’s Wings and Other Things was hailed as staying “busy, with lines out the door.”  We arrived around 6:00 on a Saturday and seemed to hit at a good time – there was only one person waiting for food and a couple who came in […]

John’s Fine Food – Jonesboro, GA

For a (of recently) rare Saturday of roaming the city, we were heading to the Scott’s Antique Market.  The State DOT wasn’t cooperating, however, as the exits to both Jonesboro Rd and Moreland Ave, east–bound on 285, were closed with roadwork.  We had to sneak up on it, and found several spots to stop, along […]

Blakely Chicken – Blakely, GA

  This story is probably best told as the fried-chicken-that-almost-got-away. Camping over in Eufala, we were as close as we were going to be, in the forseeable future, to Blakely Chicken – within an hour’s drive. It had hit my radar in an article in Garden n Gun with this quote from Linton Hopkins: “If […]

Martin’s Restaurant – Montgomery, AL

While hanging out for the weekend in metro Montgomery, one of the places I had planned to go to was Martin’s Restaurant.  We had missed the chance when we were here last fall, and I intended not to do so again.  They hit the radar originally with a list of 100 things to eat in […]
