    now, if he was saying Ezell's is worse than a Canadian "southern" style fried chicken franchise that would be much more relevant

    Ezell's is based in puget sound and Panda express is based in America

    It is possible that we have differing opinions of what constitutes a region for these purposes.

    Both sweet teas are good, and taste the same every damn time. Plus, popeye's has the 1-gallon fridge pouch.


    But that doesn't answer the question. Where is the true BEST sweet tea to be found?

    I have on good authority that the answer to this question is Milo's.

    wow
    I'm kind of amazed you're being this dense here
    I mean, I specifically stated in no uncertain terms in previous posts that I was talking about the southern fried chicken chain that he was saying is better than Ezell's as justification for comparing it to panda express
    and yet you ignore that and blindly assume I'm suggesting that Ezell's is based in the south
    even though I've lived in Seattle for decades and am well aware they only have locations in Seattle

    Actually

    I don't have any idea why you are being this hostile over a pretty innocent opinion

    And also my assumption was that you think fried chicken = america and chinese food = china, not that Ezells is in the south.

    That's why I said we had differing opinions over what constitutes a region.

    If I thought that you thought that Ezells was based in the south, I would have said

    "But Druhim, Ezell's is not in the south."

    Well, I can be kind of dense sometimes, it's true

    But you just said, in that post up there, that one of these chains is based in the region whose food it has

    It seems to me that this is untrue unless you think that

    panda express is based in China
    Ezells is based in the south or
    The region that fried chicken comes from is broader than the south, and includes Seattle.

    I've always had something against Zaxby's because their fries are subpar

    if they simply didn't give you fries they would probably rise a few tiers in my book although this is illogical

    If you're refuting that Ezell's is bad, emphasizing regional cuisine doesn't have anything to do with your position.

    If Kovak says, "Ezell's ain't even as good as our junk chicken," you don't respond with, "Unfair comparison!" That's essentially saying, "It's good, because it's the best we can do." Rather than, "It's good, because the crust texture/spices/meat whatever..." which should stand regardless of cuisine origins.

    This depends. I feel like Cameli's has fallen off since they renovated and tried to turn it into a full restaurant.

    Fellini's varies depending on time of day, barometric pressure, windspeed, and whether you know someone that works there.

    Mellow Mushroom has good pizza, but I usually eat their sandwiches.

    Fritti is retardedly good.

    Their fries are great. They serve one purpose: to be a vehicle for the dipping sauce.

    To that end they are perfect.
