Are you a fried chicken fanatic?

Personally, I enjoy a solid fried chicken dinner every now and then and between you and I, I've always thought ACME had really good fried chicken for a decent price.

Plus it's so easy, you just walk over to the prepared foods section, pick up a hot fresh container of fried chicken, and you're on your way.

In Toms River alone we have Cluck U, Chicken Town, and even Burger 25 has some sold chicken tenders.

However, there's a new fried chicken chain that's eyeing up the Garden State and its Southern Fried chicken looks delicious.
