Fried chicken and Charleston go hand-in-hand. You won’t have to look far to spot this Southern delicacy on a Lowcountry menu. Make your way to Callie’s Charleston Biscuits to sample fried chicken sandwiched between a pillowy buttermilk biscuit, schedule reservations at Poogan’s Porch for a taste of the dish drizzled in warm maple syrup, served with waffles, or head to Husk for a bite that’s fried to perfection, and awarded the title “Best Fried Chicken in the U.S.” by Food & Wine.
