Dude. I just went to this place last weekend when I was in NYC for the B's games against the Islanders and Rangers and it was GREAT! Right in Times Square area.

The hush puppies appetizer was awesome, as was their cornbread and fried chicken. We stumbled upon this place by accident and I'd definitely go back.

Just a quick shout out and thanks for posting the link to that site, Meck. I also wanted to thank you for the 4 hours of my life I lost last night while researching restaurants on it!;D I checked reviews/ratings of places my wife and I enjoy or despise, and it lined up perfectly. I then located about 25 establishments within 15-20 miles of us we've never been to. Some we had considered, some we didn't even know existed. Seriously, thanks again. Very cool and useful link.

Right on. I've posted it a number of times and always tell my friends about it. Always surprises me how many people have not heard of it or even use it.

My restaurant dollars have gone twice as far as they would have since I discovered this site a couple years ago.

What's cool is you can even find out what's good to order in a restaurant that isn't known for "being good" or what to avoid in a "Great" restaurant. Heck I've gone so far as to request waiters I've never met before based on reviews and gotten better service because I mentioned I found them on yelp!

It's getting harder for restaurants to push **** food and bad service with sites like this.

Well he did say that he ate fried chicken twice a week. Everybody's body is different, but that could be a bit much. If you're young you can get away with it. But long term that's not good.

There is one extreme case that I know about. Golden Bird used to be big time in LA, and they made great fried chicken. Mostly in the inner city. The owner's son was good friends with one of my older brothers. My brother once asked him how often he ate his family's product (this guy took over the business.) He said everyday. Yeah, he dropped dead of a heart attack in his early 40s. No shocker there. I don't think the guy was over weight either, so he must have thought that it wasn't effecting him.

I eat fried chicken maybe a couple times a month. The stuff is good, but I can't get with that stuff often.

I eat fried chicken maybe a couple times a month. The stuff is good, but I can't get with that stuff often.

. . . and I'm sure the average person my age is going to fast food restaurants a half dozen times a week. I'm not going to be a hypocrite on health choices and eating right, I should be on a strict diet due to what has happened with my kidneys and that includes low sodium intake. I also shouldn't smoke cigarettes as well, but have been cutting away at that habit slowly and with progress.

In nine months out in the High Rockies, I've lost a lot of body fat and weight. I've taken off ~ five inches off my waist size. I live in an environment where it takes a lot more for your body to work. I'm active every day. I will hike at least three hours on any given day because of how therapeutic it is for me and I'm impressed with the results. I can actually fit into clothes I wore when I was 17/18 (yeah, I'm a pack rat) and I feel pretty good about it.

Losing weight and body fat isn't an indicator of being holistically healthy, but I can say I've made changes for the better. I'm thankful for the health concerns, but fried chicken is certainly my favorite food. Just wanted to chow down on some good grub before I fly out of DIA in a few weeks.

Cheers and thanks ya'll.

Try getting it England, they've found a way...fried chicken is not good here. They have KFC, but I tell you now, do not eat the chicken. It's terrible. And they don't have biscuits at KFC here either. no, trust me when I say the English don't do Fried Chicken or hamburgers well. Fish and chips though are a pretty safe bet.

I'm absolutely supposed to have minimal sodium intake with my kidney problems. I'm supposed to maintain a diet of fresh veggies, fruits and fish is the only accepted meat for me -- absolutely avoid red meats like the plague. Stuff like lentals and all that jazz. Up in Winter Park (where I live) everything is pretty expensive, and I don't make it down enough to an organic grocery to make it work it. It's hard reversing years of habit (growing up on pork, beef and potatoes) -- but I feel like I'm doing a pretty good job.

I'm flying back home in a few weeks and might move back to Fargo for more stable job prospects. The health food store there is as cheap as regular Safeway prices on goods here, so it might be a good alternative. It's also hard for me to eat "right" consistently when you are (was) at your job from 7 AM to 7 PM each day.

I too have eaten pretty much whatever I felt like whenever I felt like it. As a result, I got fat, and stayed fat for quite awhile. Lately though (like the last 4 months) I've changed my diet and run. I'm down about 60 lbs. I should be below 200lbs by July, if the weight loss rate holds. I need to get a weight bench but that will have to wait awhile.

Its amazing how much weight you lose when you use less salt and give up all soda. Crazy stuff.

But having fried chicken on your birthday wont kill you. If you live long enough, it will happen anyway. A couple of friends of mine are moving to ND to work the oil fields out there. I'd go, but I've seen Fargo. I could not deal with that level of snow for that long, no matter the size of my paycheck. Good luck to you, my friend.

But having fried chicken on your birthday wont kill you. If you live long enough, it will happen anyway. A couple of friends of mine are moving to ND to work the oil fields out there. I'd go, but I've seen Fargo. I could not deal with that level of snow for that long, no matter the size of my paycheck. Good luck to you, my friend.

You'll have to get some Whitey's Chicken if you come down to Arkansas. It's probably the best chicken in the world.

I love grilled chicken but that's not fried chicken ....... apples and oranges.

The key to good fried chicken is to coat it in buttermilk before you bread it.

Alot of things go into making good fried chicken. Quality of the meat, kind of chicken you are frying (breast, leg, thigh, wing) spices in the flour, crispness of the batter plus the sides.

Fried chicken with asparagus? Eh. FC with mashed potatoes? Now you are on to something.

Never ate there, only heard of it. Don't think it's in my area.

To my knowldege the only one is in Hollywood on La Brea and Melrose. The line usually wraps around the building. A lot of tourist go there to eat because it's so popular. I pass by it several times a week, but I've only been there twice. It's a good hotdog, but it's just a hotdog. Nothing special about it, so I wouldn't wait in a long line for it.

I too have eaten pretty much whatever I felt like whenever I felt like it. As a result, I got fat, and stayed fat for quite awhile. Lately though (like the last 4 months) I've changed my diet and run. I'm down about 60 lbs. I should be below 200lbs by July, if the weight loss rate holds. I need to get a weight bench but that will have to wait awhile.

Oil fields are booming, know a lot of people from home and out here in Colorado doing that too. Fargo, it doesn't snow that much -- it just gets really cold because of wind and no trees. Kids were skateboarding outside @ The Dike in December and January this year.

And thanks, I'm pretty much up over 3G's again and in the same position as I was last year in August. The Fraser Valley just isn't a place you can really have a stable living and move up in the world, and I like Denver -- but that city is just too big for me right now. :)

Popeyes on east colfax. Just walk around down there round midnight, you'll find it, maybe...

!Booya! Hey now.. every time we go to Denver we always go to Popeyes on East Colfax, they do know how to serve chicken.

Now I won't go there at midnight.. for obvious reasons.

BTW Req, I meant to ask you...where are you eating fried chicken twice a week up in WP? How's life up there?? Did you ever find a jeep?

AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

I usually make it myself, I have a family recipe and it's bomb. King Soopers chicken if I don't make it myself, lol.

Life up here has been good, but my life out here is coming to and end. I really enjoyed my time out here and had a blast over the ski season. Instead of getting a jeep right now, I'm taking my money and going back home for a while. Grandpa is getting moved into a nursing home since my grandma has advanced lung cancer and is going through radiation therapy for the next six weeks. Bad timing, since I was in line to get a landscaping job for the summer -- but I figure I'd be a man, hold down the fort and get the house ready to sell.

Plus, I owe it to them to go and see them. I'll be back out in Colorado before long, but just want to get back to stable work (non-seasonal) and generate more of an income.

Still wanna get a Jeep, but will wait until I'm employed again and will buy it outright. My dad said he'd go halvsies with me once I got FT employment again, just wants to make sure I can pay the bills. He wanted to get me a 2002 Ranger XLT (he likes Ford's) and I said F NO.

My church has world class fried chix once a month and catfish too, though I prefer chix if its' fried. But roto-rooter on my aorta is something I want to avoid until I'm sure my wife's retirement is funded.

Good on ya, man! (Or perhaps it's "good off ya!")

Whenever I watch a game being played at Lambeau Field, it seems like more than half the crowd is 80 pounds overweight. I "get" that it's tougher to exercise regularly in that climate, but it seems like the general expectation there is that if you live to the age of 60, anything beyond that is an unexpected bonus.

I've read some persuasive stuff about how it's not eating fat that's so dangerous... it's SUGAR. Sugar causes a chemical chain reaction that results in the artery walls getting inflamed, and when they're inflamed, cholesterol sticks to those walls, causing the plaque that leads to blockages.

Anyone who puts effort and discipline into taking good care of their body is doing their loved ones a tremendous favor. Congrats on what you're accomplishing!

I'd go a step further and this might sound strange but taking care of oneself is a benefit to society in general.

For sure, long life is something to cherish. I hope to live long, but since I'm a soon to be 25 year old with one bum kidney, the potential of blowing past 70 doesn't seem realistic. Maybe there will be some cure or magic down the road, but for what I have, there isn't. At any case, I'm lovin' life even with the ups and downs. If I made it to 50 I would call it good.

Good for you, Req. You'll be glad you did it in the long run, I know I am. I spent 6 months out in Arizona helping to take care of my Grandfather after my Grandmother passed. Was an amazing time. It was great to get to spend so much time with him. Lots of stories and lots of laughs. It was also a ton of work, but you'll be challenged to ever find anything you do more rewarding. I also helped to get their place ready to sell, and helped to get rid of a bunch of their things. It made it easier on them for me to handle it without the emotional attachment to the items. Boy were they packrats! 50+ years worth of stuff. Grandpa had a shed/shanty town/junk pile that covered 2 acres, and Grandma was a collector/craft type. Unbelievable the amount of stuff/junk/treasures. That alone took 3 months with over 20 trips to the dump, 30 to the scrapyard, and 40 to Goodwill. 2 Garage sales that netted over $4K each. Drop me a PM when you're ready to do the Jeep thing and I'll do what I can to help out. Nice call on the Ranger, agreed! Keep us posted, and good luck.

I've always kind of agreed with Gonzo's take on it:

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
