Ezell’s Famous Chicken

For the All-American Picnic: Ezell’s Famous Chicken (Central District)

What could be more American than a picnic of fried-chicken, coleslaw and baked beans? This friendly, family-run chain has been cooking up Ezell’s famous chicken and homey side dishes for more than 20 years. The kiddos will like the original chicken and the soft, fluffy warm rolls, and more refined pallets will enjoy the sizzle of the spicy recipe. For the really adventurous, try the fresh fried chicken livers. And for the crowd-pleasing finale, get some hot and gooey peach cobbler or the sweet potato pie!
