Fried chicken at the Busy Bee Café

Available at Busy Bee Cafe !
Busy Bee’s fried chicken is an Atlanta food landmark. The friendly café down on MLK has been serving up crunchy, juicy, fried-chicken ecstasy since 1947. Busy Bee’s birds soak in a secret 12-hour marinade before getting a light toss in flour and a bath in hot peanut oil, all of which helps produce a crisp, thin crust. If you’re feeling saucy, opt for the sassy smothered version tossed in pan gravy. Either way, soak in the atmosphere, choose a couple of old-school sides such as the yams or collard greens, and be thankful for a fantastic plate of fried chicken that continues to stand the test of time. $14 (including sides).
