When a restaurant is brave enough to include a particular food in its name, its expected they’ll excel at cooking said food. Case in point: Luverne’s Chicken Shack.
The popular poultry purveyor recently won the title of Bama’s Best Fried Chicken through a contest hosted on “Simply Southern TV’s” Facebook page. As winners, Chicken Shack owners Mike and Drew Money will receive a plaque and $300, along with being featured in the fourth season of “Simply Southern TV.”
Over two weeks, eight restaurants were pitted against each other in a bracket-style tournament. In its three matchups, the Chicken Shack chalked up nearly 12,000 votes.
Bama’s Best Fried Chicken contest was sponsored by the Alabama Poultry & Egg Association and the Alabama Poultry Producers.
“Simply Southern TV” is a production of the Alabama Farmers Federation and Alabama Farmers Cooperative. The show airs Sunday mornings on broadcast channels across the state and Wednesdays at 5 p.m. Central on RFD-TV. For more information, visit SimplySouthernTV.net.
