The Great Carolina Fried Chicken Map
Plan ahead with a road map highlighting 300+ fried chicken spots
If so, no need to skid! You can plan ahead for your next stop with a new road map that highlights eateries that specialize in this yum-o-licious dish. The map marks more than 300 sites across North Carolina and South Carolina, ranging from traditional take-out joints and gas stations to church dining rooms and linen-clothed sit-downs. Each restaurant’s round symbol details how its fried chicken is made (battering method, frying method and oil type). There’s also traditional Southern-fried biscuits, sandwiches, chicken-and-waffles, Nashville-style hot chicken, Korean double-fried, smoked-fried, and two styles native to the Carolinas — dipped chicken and Calabash chicken.
On the back of the map, restaurant listings are divided by state and include addresses, phone numbers and hours. Icons call out restaurants with a buffet or cafeteria line and places that are cash-only or take-out-only. Occasionally, a description will note additional specialties to eat with your fowl, such as fried pickles (Danny’s Place in Rockwell, NC). Road maps are $9.99; posters $29.99 (front of map only, no listings).
