Honey's Kettle Fried Chicken in Culver City, CA is phenomenal but I don't understand how Bouchon's famous fried chicken didn't make the cut!!

Any "Best Fried Chicken" list that doesn't include Price's Chicken Coop in Charlotte is incomplete. It's not a linen napkin restaurant, but it is the best friend chicken in the United States.
