We are so fortunate here in Texas, and specifically East Texas, to have so many delicious restaurants to choose from. While there might be quite a few of them that aren’t exactly healthy for us, that doesn’t matter because the food they serve tastes so good. 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 to have a different opinion about the best fried chicken although I know that my opinion is correct. :)
