Fried Chicken at this NH Gas Station is one of the State’s Hidden Treasures
Is there anything better than fried chicken? No! The answer is no! I crave fried chicken when I'm having a bad day because it's comforting. It's like a deep fried, crispy, warm hug that makes you feel like everything is going to be okay. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I also crave fried chicken when everything is fine and dandy because fried chicken can only make an already good day better, right?
You know how they say don't judge a book by it's cover? Well, don't judge this fried chicken because it came from a gas station! Gas station food has had a bad reputation for as long as I can remember. I respect Reddit user @Cl4ud1u5 for changing the narrative. Apparently there was a Reddit thread recently discussing where you can get the best fried chicken in New Hampshire. Apparently, the Shell gas station in Newfields reigned supreme. Naturally @Cl4ud1u5 went to taste it for himself. He ordered their "half the bird" meal that came with potatoes. Despite the hype, he kept his expectations low because at the end of the day it is still gas station fried chicken. I quote:
"I didn't think gas station chicken would be this good, but it is."
According to other Reddit users who seem very familiar with this Shell gas station, the deli in the back of the store has been there for over 20 years! They also have great pizza, chili, and sandwiches. They keep it very casual so don't expect a fine dining experience. You walk to the back of the store, order your food and then bring it up to the front register to pay for it.
