Fried chicken is definitely having a moment. Of course, it has been a staple of American cuisine (especially Southern cooking) for years, but it's enjoying a bit of celebrity. Hell, Ben Poremba just opened an entire restaurant devoted to the dish. John Perkins and Josh Galliano take it to the next level on a weekly basis.

French fries may be the greatest side dish ever created. So simple, yet so delicious. Despite the name (which refers to the cut of the potato, not its country of origin), french fries are just as American as apple pie. One of McDonald's bestsellers can also be elevated to gourmet heights, for better or worse. (It's truffle oil, we get it.) We have several restaurants here in St. Louis that serve our favorite fries, but who serves the most underrated version?

We thought you guys could help us discover some more at places around St. Louis, whether it be a craft beer, apple cider or who knows what else.

Should we check out Charleville Brewing, Crown Valley, Ferguson Brewing or Square One?
