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 – $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.



All great things come in three’s..


IMG_1119The food truck culture continues to grow in Dallas and I haven’t been impressed with anything I’ve tried. From kimchi fries to banh mi sandwiches and tacos..none have left me feeling like I got my money’s worth.

After spending a day at Klyde Warren Park, I finally found one that wasn’t half bad. The Butcher’s Son boasts a menu of sliders and gourmet tatter tots to choose from. I went for a trio of sliders.

From left to right, I had the Mama Mia, a meatball and marinara slider, then the Southern Comfort, a chicken tender on mashed potatoes and gravy, and then the Mac n Beefy, mac n cheese over shredded marinated beef. I’m a sucker for Italian so I though the Mama Mia was the best one.
