Berkot's is good, but the problem with any store-bought fried chicken is keeping it crispy which is tough to do. Personally, I think Williamson's fried chicken is the best for miles around. Others that are not exactly in the area but all VERY good: Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket in Willowbrook, Phillie's in Darien, and any Harold's Chicken Shack or Wing-Stop (not to be confused with Wing Street at Pizza Hut!). Enjoy!

Braun's Fried Chicken WAS the best, Now Berkots Broasted is champ. I weigh nearly 600 Lbs., so I know fried chicken

I just tried Pizza Mia's (Frankfort) chicken for the first time on Sunday, at a family bday party, and I have to say it is now my new favorite place for chicken. For me, it beat out Berkots chicken, I loved the breading and the chicken was moist and flavorful...5 stars!

I absolutely love Papa Joe's fried chicken. The food is great and the prices are very reasonable too.

VFW chicken on Friday night cannot be beat! A New Lenox favorite.
