Texans, like people all over the world, love their fried chicken. You can hardly drive a block down the main drag without seeing a friendly red and yellow sign. In addition to Chick-Fil-A and Kentucky Fried Chicken, we have Popeye’s Chicken & Biscuits, Chicken Express, Babe’s Chicken, Church’s Chicken, and Golden Chick.

And then there are the wing places; Buffalo Wild Wings, Wings ‘n Things, Wings to Go, Kings of Wings, Wing Stop and The Wing Pit. I’ll bet those chickens wish their wings didn’t taste so good.

The myriad of chicken places, pit barbeques and fast food fry pits all look like so much fun, it almost makes me wish I ate meat!

Note that the golden chick’s wings are not shown.
