Bernie’s – Columbia, SC

As I planned a trip to Myrtle Beach, I realized that Columbia was about midway – and I had recently heard about Bernie’s Fried Chicken.  I had thought about stopping on the way up, but that was on Sunday – the one day of the week they are closed.    We were heading home on […]

Thank U Chicken – Duluth, GA

Thank U Chicken appeared out of nowhere (to me) on the Garden ‘N Gun Fried Chicken Bucket List.  And it’s just down the road from the office.  A lunch visit was definitely in order.   I went in on a rainy Thursday, and appeared to be the first person in the restaurant.  I knew I […]

Buckner’s Family Restaurant – Jackson, GA

For years, my dad and mom had a couple of friends that, on a random afternoon, would drive up and say, “Y’all want to go to Buckner’s?”  And off they went – to Jackson (about an hour south of the Atlanta airport), for fried chicken that has been served up, along side I-75, for almost […]

Richard’s Southern Fried – Atlanta, GA

Recently, someone mentioned a “hot chicken” place had opened in Krog Street Market and I was on it like, well, hot sauce on chicken.  I couldn’t work out the right time to get to Richard’s Southern Fried, which is from chef Todd Richards (executive chef at White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails), for a while, but […]

Hattie B’s – Nashville, TN

If you’ve followed our adventures for a while, you know that I fell in love with Nashville hot chicken back in 2013.  Since that first visit to Prince’s, we’ve been back there three times and tried it in several places here. I didn’t realize that I wasn’t the only one involved in this love affair. […]

OddBird – Atlanta, GA

For the last couple of months, I’ve been meaning to get to OddBird, the restaurant within a restaurant serving dinner in the West Egg space.  There were a couple of hindrances – it is dinner only and only open Wednesday – Saturday.  But I was drawn in by two words: “hot chicken”.  Hot chicken is […]

Hop’s Chicken – Atlanta, GA

Finally, Ponce City Market is (sort of / mostly) open.   At least, some of the food places and stores are.  Over last weekend our daughter sent us a text from H&F Burger, along with a survey of what was open.  So when Friday night rolled around and we were headed to dinner with another […]

Gus’s Fried Chicken – Atlanta, GA

For the last fifteen years, I’ve been wanting to try Gus’s Fried Chicken, in Memphis.  We had been to Memphis a couple of times over that span, but the chicken encounter never seemed to happen.  This fascination all goes back to reading, somewhere, that they had the best fried chicken in America.  A couple of […]

Revival – Decatur, GA

We had been excitedly anticipating the open of Kevin Gillespie’s Revival for months, shortly after we first heard of its opening.  About three weeks back, our youngest sent me a text that they were opening that week and we set a date and made reservations.  Located in a home from the early 1900s, on a […]

Three Blind Mice – Lilburn, GA 

On this Saturday evening, we were out roaming around, ultimately heading toward Suwanee.  As we were on the northwest side of Atlanta as late afternoon approached, I remembered that I had a restaurant on my list (AJC’s Spring Dining Guide, from 2012) in Lilburn that I had never made it, too.  Lilburn is definitely not […]
