Fodor's Expert Review Price's Chicken Coop

$ Uptown Charlotte American

If you want to know where the locals eat, just follow the scent of oil to this counter-serve institution in the historic South End neighborhood, just across Interstate 277 from Uptown. The light, crispy coating—cooked to perfection in peanut oil—that covers the chicken is so juicy you'll begin to understand that there is indeed an art to running a deep fryer. The place isn't much to look at, but that's OK because the food is to-go only.
