Mr. D's Fried ChickenI'm not a fan of fried chicken. I love chicken and yet I always rip the skin off. Today's trip, however, was through word of mouth that this man, Mr. D, makes the best fried chicken. I can't really compare it to many since I always go for grilled or simply avoid the "best part." The Food Network's Alton Brown believes this man makes the best and you know what? Maybe he's right. I'm still indifferent about fried chicken but I will say this...Mr. D is an awesome man. He is a truly great example of what today's society needs more of: kindness, a good sense of humor, and that hospitality that the South continues to show me as I end my journey to the area. I will always remember this place. The sweet potatoes are the best I've ever eaten and while I can't say for sure that the fried chicken ranks supreme, everyone needs a Mr. D in their life.
