Okay, because I keep ranting about it, but truly, it's the best fried chicken in the world. Hands down. Fries, too. They are incredible. You already know the rating. You're probably already sick of hearing about it, but buck up. Man up. You must.
There it is. First, the chicken. It's tender. It's extremely juicy, and always moist. I have never gotten a part of this that is chewy, dry, or containing gristle. I mean, if there are any complaints, it might be that it's a little too greasy, but you're eating fried chicken. It's not weight watchers, here. It's flipping delicious, though. Covered in this chicken is a tender, tender breading that stays and adheres to the chicken with parsley, garlic, and onion salt. This chicken also needs no ketchup or mustard, only salt and pepper. It's perfect. It's just perfect.
As for the fries, they range in size from bullet shaped to six inches long and all are crispy on the outside, and the potato on the inside is fluffy and hot. Again, with these, all that's needed is salt and pepper. They look undercooked in the photo, but they fall apart at the perfect moment when you eat these- in your mouth. They're able to be picked up, so don't break upon contact, but don't pull a Cap'n Crunch in your mouth and slice you up like a Jet and you're a Shark. They are perfect. Marry them.
Oh, and by the way? That plate that you see in the photo...that's the kid's plate. For 12 and under. That's what I always get. $5.59, massive portion, with a lemonade. Lenny and Joe's, you are my saviors almighty.
