This list covers most of the independent mom & pop stores and restaurants suggested by our listeners. I realized while putting this list together that many South Jersey eateries serve chicken wings, but not nearly as many serve fried chicken. That doesn't count for this list.

Why Were Some of the Suggestions for Good South Jersey Fried Chicken Places Not Included?

Are All of These Delicious South Jersey Fried Chicken Places Restaurants?
