Seattle's own Ezell's Famous Chicken is in the running for the title of "Most Life-Changing Fried Chicken."
Esquire Magazine asked readers to name their most life-changing commercial fried chicken purveyors. Ezell's in Seattle was among the top submissions and has been included in an online poll open to readers' votes.
"I love Ezell's," 97.3 KIRO FM's Dori Monson told his audience, after spotting Ezell's on the list. "Ezell's one year made me fat."
Monson said he once gained 20 pounds during a period where he frequented the restaurant a couple times a week.
"Ezell's is a good once a quarter place for me [now]," said Monson, still encouraging listeners to vote for the Seattle chicken spot.
Ezell's currently ranks second in the online poll behind Price's Chicken Coop in North Carolina.
Esquire editors note the chicken fryers ranked in the top ten tend to be southern. Ezell's is the only Northwest candidate for best chicken.
