Best Fried Chicken within 1 1/2 hours of Baton Rouge?
I'm wanting to get out of town this weekend for some good fried chicken - just to get out of the house. What's your favorite chicken place within 1 1/2 hours of BR? preferably something with a park or recreation area nearby so we can take it there to eat. Thanks!

Stockyard Cafe and Chicken Shack are both in BR and have excellent chicken.

In Baton Rouge... chicken shack or blue plate are my favorites but I don’t get to them as often I’d like.


Only eaten a few times but I always enjoyed Big Boys in New roads

Pik a Pak in Port Allen is good from what I remember. It’s a convenience store.

Brown's fried chicken in Brusly. It's a game changer.

Find a gas station with a "Krispy Krunchy Fried Chicken" sign out front and buy your chicken there. They are all over the place in Mississippi and all are good. Try to make the purchase about 12:15 pm, so the stuff is fresh cooked.

Much-much too far away from you, and sadly from me too, since we moved after retirement, but the Pure Oil Station in Dekalb, MS, across from the county courthouse, is not a Krispy Krunchy Chicken cooking place, but it has the best lunch time fried chicken you will find in the United States.

Here is an order of livers and fries. I get all emotional every time I see this photo and remember my faded love.

Mr. Google tells me there is one in Broussard, Alexandria, and Vinton. Does not indicate the name of the gas station, but I am 99% certain they have the Krispy Krunchy sign out front.

Oh wow! I just noticed Alexandria is their Corporate Headquarters! What a great place LA is. I bet there are many more than the three indicated if the headquarters is in Alexandria.

I feel a road trip to Alexandria coming on. I might be the chain's biggest fan.

Thay even have a website! You must see it!

Their chicken is even better than the photos. The site even has a time line!

I grew up on krispy krunchy and the big issue with them is consistency because it often sits under a heatlamp for a long time. If it’s fresh, it’s pretty great, but if it’s been sitting, it’s really underwhelming. I also don’t care for their fries. I find their tenders have a lot of connective tissue in them as well. Livers and gizzards are usually made to order and are really good.

I once had some of the best chicken tenders ever at a wake. Someone had brought them from some little hole in the wall place in Maurepas. I really want to find out where.

Trudy's ain't in Thibodaux bruh. They in Kramer, which is back BACK Chackbay. And they're chicken is ok but far from the best thing on the menu.

For me, best fried chicken in an hour and a half radius of BR is (1) Jenny's Poboys in Gramercy and (2) Ace's Soul Kitchen in Hahnville. I'd take either one over Popeye's and I love TF out of Popeyes.
