Try Oprah's Favorite Fried Chicken

There’s nothing fancy about Ezell’s, a hole-in-the-wall fried chicken joint in Seattle's Central District—there isn’t even seating. But that’s not the point. You don’t go to Ezell’s for the ambience; you go for the crispy, batter-fried drumsticks, the sweet and tangy barbecue beans, and the fluffy biscuits that look like popovers. Faygo fans will also appreciate that Ezell’s keeps its soda cooler fully stocked with the fruity pop. Oprah famously ate here once, and her picture is proudly displayed on the wall. The joint is takeout only, but no one will judge you if you immediately tear open the bag and eat in your car—you won’t be the only one.
