We asked you to nominate St. Louis' most underrated fried chicken, and you delivered some really interesting selections. A special shout-out to our Metro East readers (or, at least, readers who spend time on the east side, and not just at the strip clubs) -- Illinois restaurants received several mentions.
Two restaurants nominated more than once that we didn't include are Porter's Fried Chicken (3628 South Big Bend Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-781-2097) and Young's Restaurant & Ice Creamery (206 Meramec Station Road, Valley Park; 636-225-6677). Both have won Riverfront Times' "Best Fried Chicken" honor in the past -- Young's twice.
After the jump, meet the seven semifinalists for St. Louis' most underrated fried chicken.
