When my job was located in Rainier Valley, my daily drive to and from work included a brief, wonderful moment where I would pass Ezell's. The aroma of fried chicken was delicious and overwhelming.

When J mentioned that he had never had Ezell's, I knew that we needed to make a trip to the little shop.

The restaurant is super tiny and basically all take-out, so if you're planning on sitting and eating there, you'll be out of luck.

J and I got some fried chicken, corn, mashed potatoes, and potato salad. The sides are super tiny.

The chicken was super moist and the skin was crispy--perfectly fried. It was flavorful and satisfying.

The sides were marginal--the corn was good, but the rest of the sides were...meh.

The corn was buttery and had a slight taste of pepper--delish. I wish the container was bigger though! I'm not sure if this is a product of having larger portions everywhere, but I really wanted more corn.

The mashed potatoes tasted like they had been made and sat out for a while. The gravy was cold and it just wasn't that amazing.

The potato salad wasn't very memorable.

Overall, go to Ezell's for the chicken. You can skip the sides.
