Price's Chicken Coop

Price's Chicken Coop Review

If you want to know where the locals eat, just follow the scent of oil to this storefront institution in the historic South End neighborhood, just across Interstate 277 from Uptown. The place isn't much to look at, but that's OK because the food is to-go only. And the chicken is the reason to go—and go again and again. A light, crispy coating covers meat so juicy you'll begin to understand that there is indeed an art to running a deep fryer. Take some back to your hotel in Uptown and make everyone on the elevator jealous with the scent of Southern-fried goodness.
