Favorite Fried Chicken Joint: Rudy’s Chicken

If anyone were to ask me what my favorite food in the world is, it would be fried chicken. And if they were to ask me where I would go for said favorite fried chicken, it would be Rudy’s.

Rudy’s is located in the heart of Oak Cliff and the last time I was there, it really was just a sketchy stand-alone shack. You ordered your 2pc dark basket from a window while standing outside. No seating, no patio and cash only.

After such a long hiatus, I finally had a chance to make it back for one heck of a cheat meal. I got 3 whole birds (legs, thighs, wings, breasts) and a fried gizzard and liver basket for my friends to try. Total to feed 9 people Р$30. Cheap. Oh so wonderfully cheap.

The skin is exquisite. Crunchy, seasoned well, and quickly induces a food coma from the sodium overload. I always have an issue with their larger pieces because sometimes the flavors don’t quite get through, but for anyone and everyone, I would recommend getting wings. You get that great balance of crunchy skin and meat. Ask for extra seasoning and Rudy’s sauce. *drool*¬†I’m still dreaming about it.



Fried Chicken Galore!


So… when I have a bad day, and in this case a bad week, I eat chicken. I eat chicken when I am happy and definitely when I am stressed out. Popeye’s Tuesday special definitely hits the spot, but the best chicken in Dallas is from Rudy’s Chicken in Oak Cliff. My brother was kind enough to bring home a bada** feast of chicken wings from Rudy’s along with it’s pretty awesome Rudy’s sauce. There’s just something about the seasoning. I dub it crack chicken. The random hankering for this chicken you get sporadically is an indication of how awesome it is. Everyone must try it.

The city of Dallas just offered this ghetto fried chicken shack some money to renovate it’s run down little shack. I can’t wait to see what new additions that money can make. Hopefully there might actually be places to sit and eat as oppose to just picking up.
