World's Best Fried Chicken?

Out on Kellogg avenue, river side, between the marina's and Lunken airport is a white shack looking restaurant boldly advertising 'The World's Best Fried Chicken'. Well. To be fair, I wouldn't know the world's best fried chicken if it walked up and introduced itself, but my curiosity finally coaxed... read more

I wouldn't go out of my way to go back. service was good, and while they have a lot of food choices(breakfast all day along with everything else)...the tastes were just average. My table had the following: double cheeseburger, chicken salad, broccoli cheese soup, fried chicken and ham & cheese omelet. All were fine, just nothing special.

I have eaten here before and usually had a good meal. This morning I ordered a breakfast of toast, eggs and home fried potatoes. Well, the regular cook must have been off or something because what I got was a plate of greasy, discolored and under-cooked potato slices (see photo). Even the fried eggs were greasy. When I paid the... More

Stopped there the other day for lunch. Even tho the parking lot was full there were still a few tables available. The chichen was very good but not the best I've tasted. Might try something different next time.

I was looking for a different place to have breakfast, so I decided to visit the Hitching Post and I made the right choice! I went with my significant other, and we were truly impressed. The waitress was the only one there at the time, but she didn't miss a beat! She promptly took our order and made sure we... More

The food is always good. The double stack turkey and Monterey Jack sandwich is great! The hot wings are a must have and everything is reasonably priced.

Found this place on google maps and thought it would be worth a try. They boast best fried chicken in at least Cincinnati. It was really good. Sides were good. Co-worker had a burger and stated that it was better than places like five guys. Overall great place to eat.

This place is in a Hyde Park Strip Mall. Easy parking at most times. They tout their breakfasts but they only open at 8:30 AM; I guess the Hyde Park crowd likes to sleep in! The real draw is the fried chicken served later in the day and it is good. I came for breakfast after a fasting phyical and... More
