    I went to Roscoe's the other night on Pico. Really great stuff, dark meat of course!

    I've got to go to Golden Bird again one of these days...its been a while.

    Pann's near LAX has some good chicken wings, I was there today for breakfast in fact but opted for steak and eggs.

    Aunt Kizzys, but haven't been to their new location.

    Flossie's in Redondo is pretty good but just a pain to get to, so I don't go there that much.

    If you live in Chi get some fried chicken from Lem's with the sauce on it. Only go during the day.

    No doubt, although imo Lem's is on some other shit.

    Apparently the Harold's are all pretty different; unsurprisingly, when I lived there the word was the most ghetto ones were the best.

    There's some crazy spray painted place near UIC Med - I think maybe at that Ogden/Western intersection? - that I heard was nuts, and looked nuts, but I never got to try. Maybe you could do some investigating and get back to us...

    Just make it at home. Onion powder, garlic powder, Lowrey's seasoning salt and some flour is all you need. Remember to pan fry, never deep fry and don't eat with a knife and fork- you want chicken and crust in every bite. If you have the energy you could marinate it in a little dark jamaican rum, adobo, grated ginger, and slight bit of sugar for a 6 hours coat it in flour and fry it.

    Honestly, the HEB grocery store in my neighborhood growing up had pretty good chicken.

    Harold's Chicken Shacks and Aunt Kizzy's are both very overrated. Wildly overrated, actually.

    BUT, Roscoe's is indeed the real deal.

    In LA, as well as Roscoe's, you might try Aunt Rose Lee's on Western, Harold and Belle's on Jefferson, or Chef Marilyn's on Crenshaw (they have another branch on Pico apparently). Dinah's on the west side not too far from LAX used to be decent as well. I am not a fan of Aunt Kizzy's although it is passable.

    For something completely different, some of the better Japanese restaurants serve spectacular fried chicken, e.g., Asanebo on Ventura Blvd.
