Even though John’s Fried Chicken is a chain with locations in the Bronx and New Jersey, this Dominican fried chicken spot feels like a neighborhood restaurant run by a small family. When you walk in, you’ll be greeted by someone at the counter who will kindly pack a foil to-go box full of fried chicken just for you. The crispy fried chicken’s delicious vinegar-based batter objectively tastes so good, most other fried chicken will seem unforgettable. Return to the counter and order more for the ride home.
