Food & Wine magazine is known for reporting on rising chefs and the newest fine-dining trends, but even they know good, on-the-go fried chicken when they taste it.
In a recent feature titled “10 Gas Station Foods Across the Country That Are Worth the Detour,” writer Hillary Eaton put Royal Farms’ fried chicken at the top of the list.
“If a glance at chicken-filled buffet trays glowing golden under the heat lamp alongside lotto tickets and Lays chips puts you off, check yourself and just order it already,” Eaton wrote.
Other eateries in the Food & Wine list include El Carajo in Miami and Michigan’s Mr. Kabob. Read the full feature here.
