Who the hell don't like some soul food! Fried chicken fills the tummy & soothes the soul. Get your fill of some of the area's best fried chicken before you crack down on that Spring diet regime!

My personal fav, Hattie's Chicken Shack is a capital region staple with 2 locations now in Saratoga! Toga town never tasted so damn good. Their Phila Street spot has been there for decades & now they have a satellite spot in the Wilton plaza off of exit 15. Chef Jasper is still doin his thang with that southern fried cuisine. You saw him throw down with Bobby Flay in Saratoga a few summers ago & his award winning recipes still hittin. Check out the link to Hattie's menu here  http://www.hattiesrestaurant.com/menu.php
