As Jim Ross said, Rip’s is close for a good no-frills fried chicken. It is inexpensive, but there can be a huge wait on the weekends.
I would definitely recommend Ron’s Cajun Connection in Utica. I tried it for the first time last month and have been dying to get back there. The food is plentiful and quite authentic, and the roasted pecan pie is the single best dessert I have had all year.
