This is hardly an exhaustive sampling, leaving out places with excellent regular Fried Chicken Specials, places that are located out of the city center (Friar Tuck's, Country Cat) and completely foregoing breakfast places (Pine State, Screendoor).
If you don't like lines, that's fine, but you can hardly discount the quality of an establishment's food simply because it's popular.
Reel'M Inn may have good chicken, but I'll never know because I was put off by the extremely dubious cleanliness, and in fact many of the places you selected seem to serve some reverse bias by being complete shit holes.
And who the fuck really needs a review of Popeye's and KFC, home of the "Bucket of fried slop for fat-asses"?
If this was titled "Places that have fried chicken for dinner, that I didn't find pretentious, and that I was willing to drag my lazy ass too" I would have no problems. F+
As the writer points out "... 1 in 133 people are estimated to have undiagnosed celiac disease.". And while I wholeheartedly agree with them about the myriad of hypochondriac posers cluttering our fine restaurants and grocery stores, 1 in 133 of them ostensibly have AN ACTUAL DISEASE. Vegans on the other hand inflict their diet, and subsequent sanctimonious bitching, on themselves based on some wrongheaded notion of morality, regardless of the medical impact these diets. So I'm going to say that Gluten-free, while bullshit is 1/133rd LESS bullshit than veganism.
Another cafe run by a bunch of GPC smoking shit-heels in black skinny jeans. Terrific. Just what the neighborhood needed. I especially appreciate that they painted over the beautiful mural that used to be on the side of their building with turd brown. Oh, and fuck that douche-nozzle Morrisey, he and the Smiths are easily the most overrated acts of the late 20th century.
Folks nerdier than I have pontificated on several "The Goon" themed cocktails here:
Re: The Replacments, Bob Stinson was kicked out 9 yrs. BEFORE he kicked it, so their decline is more of a bad line up choice than tragic death induced. Fucks with the notion of a reunion tour though...
