Nothing says comfort food quite like fried chicken.

While we may not live in the deep South, a handful of businesses are serving up Southern staples right (and a couple more are on the way!). Here, Yelp presents five spots that have local users buzzing.

Crackers Casual Dining

“The chicken fried chicken was so perfectly moist and tender, I was in awe. It felt like a truly Southern dish and was one of the tastiest pieces of chicken I’ve ever had. I had it with a side of mashed potatoes, just as great.” Yelper Fidel C.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar

“Yardbird takes fried chicken to a new level… The chicken entrees are large enough for two people to share, but you might not want to. I ordered the Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken: half of a chicken served with a honey hot sauce.” Yelper Katherine D

WHISK Gourmet

“The small restaurant is perfect for an intimate and relaxed date. But let’s get real, their food is spectacular… This place is my go-to for juicy, succulent, and tender fried chicken! I’m a self proclaimed chicken tender connoisseur, and their buttermilk batter is seasoned to perfection, yet holds so well.” Yelper Maya B.

Caporal Chicken

“Cheap fried chicken, waffles, and cafe con leche? Sounds funny but they all actually work together… Fried chicken is really good; however, there isn’t an option to get a really crispy skin. Don’t worry, it’s not necessary. The chicken is fine enough as it is.” Yelper Joann C.


“Fried chicken and waffles! These seriously lived up to the hype. The batter was fresh, the chicken was juicy, and the waffles were cooked perfectly before getting a coat of bacon and powdered sugar. Just add the syrup and enjoy your little taste of heaven on earth.” Yelper Kyle M.
