Where To Find The Most Fantastic Fried Chicken In Columbus

When you hear the words “comfort food” what comes to mind?

The answer will vary from person to person, but for a lot of us out there, comfort food is synonymous with fried chicken. All four of my grandparents moved to Columbus from Appalachia, and fried chicken and fish were a frequent main dish at family gatherings.

Columbus is home to some really yummy fried chicken. Whether you’re on the hunt for southern fried chicken, Nashville hot chicken, or Korean fried chicken, you can find it here in the capital city.

Warning: what you’re about to read may cause immediate fried chicken cravings. I guess we all know what will be on the menu for dinner tonight!
