Make some space in your belly, because one of America’s best fried chicken restaurants is in Palmetto State.
Martha Lou’s Kitchen in Charleston was named by Thrillist as “The 31 Best Fried Chicken Restaurants in America.”
The “soul food sanctuary has been satisfying South Carolinians for more than three decades now, behind a brightly painted pink exterior that’s as warmly welcoming as, well, a bite of her fried chicken,” the Thrillist report said.
In 2011, the New York Times featured the restaurant for having cooking that “establishes a baseline of excellence that would be difficult for any cook to top.”
The Charleston City Paper reported Martha Lou Gadsden was set to open a second restaurant in North Charleston in April.
