Chicken in the Rough

Some of the best restaurants we have found has been through word of mouth. Here's the thing. If the food and service is excellent the recommendation to check out that restaurant will get around rather quickly. On the other hand if the food and service is lousy at a restaurant you will definitely hear about it. Now what is interesting if the food and service is just average you won't hear anything about it which really saves you the trouble of checking out that restaurant in the first place. We have discovered some of the best restaurants, bar & grills and eateries through word of mouth.

Palms Krystal Bar & GrillPalm Krystal Bar & Grill

Palm Krystal Bar & Grill is located at 1535 Pine Grove Avenue, Port Huron, Michigan. We discovered this bar and grill close to 20 years ago through word of mouth. The building is rather non-descript even though it is an older building so it is one of those restaurants you might easily drive by without out realizing the jewel inside. It is a must stop at place when you are in Port Huron, Michigan! This small bar & grill is home to chicken in the rough which is seriously some of the very best tasting fried chicken you will ever taste! Their service is friendly as well. I will warn you to not exptect fast food although the wait time for food is definitely not a problem. The service is some of the best you will experience!

A four piece (half chicken) dinner will cost you $9.99. It comes with your potato of choice and a dinner roll. Salad is on the side as are drinks but the price is more than reasonable. The chicken is seriously the star of the show! It is lightly seasoned deep fried chicken. at it's finest crispy on the outside yet moist and tender on the inside reminding me very much of the deep fried chicken I make at home. Yet there is just that little something that is missing from homemade. The skin is golden brown and crispy with a moist, tender meat. It really is a lovely meal, well presented with excellent service, definitely worth stopping to enjoy!
