Now for the Fried Chicken. I must say that I was looking forward to this dish for months because I was eager to see if I could actually find a good Fried Chicken place.
Sadly, KFC and Popeye’s tend to dominate the fried chicken scene in this general vicinity, with fast food being an option too easy to ignore. But thankfully, Holy Smoke has provided a much needed better option.
Every bit of this chicken was enjoyable; the skin was some of the best I’ve had, as it had a great crunch. The meat was thick and very juicy, and the grease content within was also very good, as it added to the flavor.
The meat was not too heavily seasoned (although double dipped in seasoned flour), nor did it need to be, due to the wonderful buttermilk that they used.
In regards to the sides, the chili was good and had a little spice to it, and the potato salad was creamy, chunky, and sweet. Both were nice additions to my chicken.
In my experience so far, Buttermilk Fried Chicken is the best dish at Holy Smoke; my opinion could very well change with increased tastings of different dishes, but all I know is that I’m looking forward to further excursions to Holy Smoke to find out!
