Ask most residents of Jackson Parish who serves the best fried chicken and they will tell you that it is Southern Classic Chicken. This is verified almost daily around lunch time by the drive thru line that often times even stretches onto adjoining highway 4 east.
Apparently folks all over north Louisiana agree.
Tuesday was recognized as National Fried Chicken Day and in response radio station K94.5 out of Shreveport/Bossier City conducted a survey to find out what fried chicken outlet north Louisiana residents thought was best.
Some honorable mentions included Cotton’s in Minden, Fausto’s in Coushatta and Chicken Buffet in Benton, but by a large majority, when some deep fried yard bird was what was desired, they head to Southern Classic.
Other than the franchise in Jonesboro, other Southern Classic locations in north Louisiana can be found in Ruston, Monroe, Farmerville, Natchitoches, Many and Mansfield, as well as, several locations in Shreveport / Bossier City.
