Ezell's Famous Chicken


2300 N 45th St

"That's Oprah's favorite fried chicken" is a sentence you'll hear over and over when people refer to Ezell's. It is, indeed, famous chicken. But while we at The Stranger tend to think famous things are a load of hoopla, Ezell's reputation isn't hyperbole. The blessed people at this Seattle chain take the carnage of a basic bird and transmute it into a holy American meal. Stressed over a test? High as balls? You won't find a better companion than a three-piece chicken dinner combo from Ezell's—now open in Wallingford, a quick walk for UW students willing to venture past I-5. CHASE BURNS
