Chicago's Harold's Chicken Shack gets the nod as one of the best fried chicken spots in the country by Food & Wine magazine.
Food & Wine just released its list for the best fried chicken in the country and two Chicago spots made the cut.
On Harold's Chicken Shack, they had this to say:

One of the first and most popular food trucks is taking a hiatus.
Meatyballs Mobile chef/owner Phillip Foss tweeted Friday:
"Though humbling & heart breaking to inform, The Meatyballs Mobile will only occasionally 'pop up' going forward."
His reasoning?! Because he wants to focus more attention on his successful, but tiny brick-and-mortar project, EL restaurant, in the Pilsen neighborhood:
"My attention will now be devoted full time to EL ideas venture & unlocking our full potential. Still really sad right now."
Good luck, man!

That's because it's the birthday of avec chef Koren Grieveson (didja know she has an identical twin?!).
But there's more big anniversaries on this special day. . .
