Is there any other food that screams "Southern" as loud as fried chicken?  The answer is no.

Here's the real question: Who fries up that yard-bird better than anyone else?  Before you respond, just know there are a lot of right answers in the Shreveport-Bossier City area.  It's not hard to find tasty fried chicken in our town, but maybe you didn't know just how many choices there really are.

That's where I come in.  My taste buds and stomach have done some exhaustive and delicious research that I will never tell my cardiologist about.  During my culinary journey, I have uncovered 13 fan-favorite fried-chicken joints that dot our metropolitan area.  Each one has their own distinctive poultry practice and therefore a unique taste.

Just a couple of notes: Taste is objective.  While you may not agree that some of these choices are the "best," just know that each and everyone of them not only has hungry fans - but a few of them are nearing cult status!  As you're skimming along and building an appetite, make sure your favorite is listed.  If I've missed one, let me know.  I'll make sure to make the trip in order to conduct more research (eat) - purely for professional purposes, I assure you.
