yea im sure they just love reminding people that their in a bad part of the 'hood.
Thank God. I thought after reading such a long post that it was going to end with Ezell's having a malignant brain tumor. (If you've watching MSNBC all day like me you'd understand.)
I would go there but they are fearing some make believe guy in the sky: they ought to worry about the gun shots outside their front door instead.
I think we should use this as an opportunity to endlessly debate the merits of small business vs. big, soulless business.
There were protesters in front of KFC on the hill Sunday and to spite them I went in and bought some chicken from them, walked outside and ate it in front of them saying how damn good it was.
What were they protesting about? Are they against greasy tasty goodness?
I think they were protesting KFC's discontinuation of their Famous Bowls. People love food that looks like it's already been eaten.
Ezell's stopped being good the day they stopped using trans fats.
At first I felt this was a terrible day indeed. But later that day I realized I was finally free to move out of my crappy duplex with the psychotic downstairs neighbors.
So I guess the whole thing is a wash.
Meat : Murder or Tasty?
Tasty, tasty murder.
I once went to Ezell's and they had closed off the building becuase of a medical emergency...there was an ambulance and I could see someone inside the store, lying on a stretcher. It looked pretty serious, like someone was horribly injured. All i could do was circle my car around the block repeatedly and mutter to myself, "so when are they going to reopen so i can get some chicken???"
@9 We are NOT having that discussion again.
Is that a plastic bag the box of chicken is in?
Do any Ezell's employees own SUVs?
It IS a platic bag!!!!!
Time to protest Ezell's right now!!! Where is Erica???
I suppose I'm hysterical if I ask if there is a connection between tolerating chicken torture and drive-by shootings.
"I'd take a bullet for a pullet"
@17 Yes, it does sound hysterical, in the funny way too.
@17, In high school we had these chicks that we were studying imprinting in biology class. I fed mine fried chicken to see if she would eat it and you know what? SHE ATE IT!!!!!
I bet if you fed fried human to humans, and didn't tell them what it was, they'd eat it too.
Which reminds me, today is my birthday and, to celebrate, you should go to Ezell's and eat the hell out of some of Seattle's best cluck.
Although, Mark Mitchell will still tell you the most kickin' chicken in town is at that little mini mart next to Redwood.
Mr Schmader's comment wins. I laughed hard enough that I choked on the chicken I was eating...
And I've always wondered who came up with that name? How can a new product be "Famous"? Maybe they forgot the "IN" in front of the "Famous".....
@21, sure, most rational people would eat fried mystery meat, no questions asked.
This post reminds me of similar experiences I have when I visit Ezell's Lynnwood location. It's like Baghdad up there.
Seattle likes crispy fried chicken and soggy French fries? I just don't get it, I just don't get it...
I finally tried the Pike Street Fish Fry -- slightly drunk --- now why did it take so long for someone to come up with this great idea... a fish'n'chips joint on PIKE STREET?
Can we give them the Genius Award?
For the most part, the differences in Fried Chicken comes down to the spices used. Ezell's, which I admit not having been to since they shut down the U-District stand, as I remember, some of the best fried chicken I had eaten, but I preferred the fried chicken from the City Market on Capitol Hill.
Happy birthday, Kerri!
Wouldn't it be sad if the internet was about to crash and this pointless post was the last thing ever uploaded?
@26 You sir, are a madman.
Unbearable Bobness, indeed.
Discussing delicious chicken is always worthwhile.
