Fried chicken is almost as controversial as politics and petanque, both of which I avoid at most costs. Anyway, we were in need of a fried chicken fix. If you do not know what a fried chicken fix is, do not keep reading and definitely avoid the M&G diner.
Good, you are still with me. This place is a shrine to fried chicken. Yes they serve breakfast, waffles and fried chicken, but we go for the chicken. Actually, the whole meal is worth it. You get a fried chicken leg and thigh, two sides, in our case baked macaroni and cheese and braised collard greens--though when we went this most recent time they had cabbage which was amazingly tender and flavorful-- as well as two split and griddled corn muffins. Ask for a cola and your day is now complete. The skin on the chicken is crispy but not over spiced and complicated. It is after all fried chicken. The macaroni and cheese is custard like in tenderness, with bits of caramelized goodness here and there.
With regards to the rest of the menu I have no concrete evidence on quality, though people order the other stuff as well. We go for the fried chicken fix.
