A short walk from most crew hotels in Atlanta is where Southern hospitality meets culinary delight; Lickety Splits stands as a beacon of Southern comfort and flavor that one can only find at your Memaw's kitchen table. As a connoisseur of all foods, especially those from the Deep South, I've had my fair share of fried chicken, pork chops, catfish, wings, and smoked ribs from various corners of the South. But let me tell you, Lickety Splits takes the crown with their fried chicken masterpiece.
Arrive hungry because you will not want to miss adding some appetizers, such as the deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes. If you have never had fried green tomatoes, now is your chance to experience them to perfection. They are perfectly seasoned and fried fresh just before delivery to your plate.
Next, you have a lot of proteins to pick from, but this article is about the star of the show – the fried chicken. It's not merely a dish; it's a journey into the heart of Southern cooking. Picture this: a golden-brown exterior that promises a satisfying crunch, giving way to succulent, perfectly cooked chicken. It's the kind of bite that lingers in your memory, tempting you to come back for more. I am getting hungry again rereading what I just wrote!
What sets Lickety Splits apart from other restaurants? Well, let's talk about their secret spice. There's an alchemy in their seasoning that elevates the fried chicken game. It's not just about a crispy crust; it's about the dance of flavors that explode in your mouth with every bite. This results in fried chicken that's not just a meal but a culinary celebration.
If you are looking for an option that is not deep-fried, try the grilled chicken legs; they were bursting with just as much flavor. They had the perfect char on the outside, which sealed in juices that were released with every subsequent bite.
Lickety Splits doesn't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. You will want to come back and try whatever you missed from the menu, and you will not be disappointed. The ribs, catfish, and pork chops shine just as brightly as the fried chicken. With every bite, you can taste the love that the chef has put into every recipe.
Now, let's talk about the supporting cast – the sides. Collard greens, bursting with Southern goodness, offer a balance to the crispy indulgence of the chicken. The Parmesan corn on the cob, steamed broccoli, and the Southern favorite fried okra will round out your culinary trip to the South. Lickety Splits understands that a true Southern feast isn't just about the main dish – it's about the symphony of flavors that accompany it.
The ambiance at Lickety Splits is like stepping into a Southern kitchen, where the warmth of the staff and the aroma of fried chicken create an irresistible invitation. It's not just about the meal – it's about immersing yourself in the heart of Southern traditions.
So, whether you're a local seeking your next comfort-food fix or a traveler eager to taste the best of Georgia, Lickety Splits is where you need to be. It's more than a restaurant – it's a celebration of everything that makes Southern cooking legendary. The fried chicken is the star, but the sides and the ambiance are the supporting characters that make it a true Southern epicurean adventure. Come for the fried chicken – stay for the Southern charm.
