If you are driving through south Georgia, Blakely Chicken is worthy of a detour. This walk-up chicken stand, with a single picnic table out front, is no-frills rather than chef-driven, and serves fried chicken for the purist. Fresh and juicy, the chicken is made in front of you in deep-fat fryers. I like its simplicity, and what makes it so craveable is the crispy skin and spice blend. I also like that they serve chicken livers—that’s sign of a good chicken place.
