Atlanta has become a food connoisseur’s paradise for Southern cuisine. Millions of tourists fly in each year to indulge their tastebuds in what we like to call “soul food.” This genre of cuisine has a way of bringing people together for barbecues, birthday parties, family reunions and more. You’d better believe they’re eating mac & cheese, collard greens and candy yams, but at the end of the day it’s all about the chicken. Let’s be clear: we mean fried chicken! We’re giving everyone a cheat sheet for locating the best fried chicken spots Atlanta. Now hurry up and get to your destination, because there is always a long line before you get a little taste of heaven.
