There is no doubt about it, here in East Texas we love to eat, especially any fried food. While fried food might not be the best for our diet there is something amazing about delicious fried chicken and the comfort it brings when you’re eating it. Which is why I wanted to look online for what locals in Tyler, Texas believe to be the best fried chicken in our area. 

The difficult part about discussing fried chicken is that everyone is looking for something a little different. Not all fried chicken is the same, personally I like spicy fried chicken but I know plenty of people who don’t like to have too much spice as they think it takes away from the flavor of the chicken. And it’s okay for those people to be wrong.
