In the mood for some good fried chicken this weekend while enjoying some college football. Anyone got any suggestions? Preferably near Fairfield County?

Rootsman Kitchen on Park Avenue deep in the hood in Bridgeport. Just south of the Railroad tracks. They don't make it until after lunch. Lock your car doors. Consider packing....but it's excellent.
It’s really good. I concur. I’d stop there before my FFD county gigs frequently. I’ve never had a problem there but I used to walk in and out of Father Panic village before it was razed.

Growing up in Stamford, Reddi Rooster was damn good. I see they are still around, not sure if they are still good.

I mean, yeah it’s all gross if you think about it.

That’s why I don’t think about it. I love it.

Thighs are criminally underrated.
Thighs criminally overrated? I thought those were universally known as the best part. The wings get all up fried. Drums/Legs are for the kids. The breasts can be good but are so easy to overcook if you don't know what you are doing. The dark meat and size of the thigh is perfect for frying.

I remember an interview Cypress Hill had a million years ago and they did a gig in the area. They went looking for a bar in Bridgeport and ended up in a pool hall. They said 12 year old kids kept coming up to them trying to sell them guns and crack. They never even heard of Bridgeport before they booked a show and they thought CT. was all rich white people. DJ Muggs said he couldn't believe it, it was one of the roughest areas he had come across.

I know you love New Orleans, they of course do fried chicken better than everywhere else.
It is the best I've had. Fiorella's is my favorite because I like it spicy.
I'll have to try Fiorella's. Have had fried chicken in New Orleans and didn't find it anything special. When I'm in New Orleans it's all about the fried oyster or fried shrimp Po Boys. Mrs. Diesel is all abou the Mufallatas (or however it's spelled).

Didn't you mean "underrated?"
Otherwise, yes.
