Right before I moved I was introduced to this place in the south hood

http://krispyswichita.com/

The KFC thread reminded me of this joint.

Krispys Fried Chicken is the best chicken I have ever tasted..  It's located on south Hillside near the deserted roller coaster park.

Please ENJOY!!

So random. I was discussing this place via email with some friends yesterday. I have never been there, but my friend said it was really good.

You and Gooch should go, but go before sundown and don't stop at the nearby QT.

Jesus rough ridin' christ

Its a rough part of town after dark. Somebody just got shot at that QT  a few months back.   

What's your deal?

If it's a rough part of town after dark it's also rough during the daylight. Wtf does night time have to do with anything?

I used to deliver pizzas in that area and we wouldn't deliver after dark.

The gas station nearest  my house is like a very normal gas station during the day, but at night it's kinda scary and not just in a white midwesterner view.  There have been multiple shootings there the last 3-4 years since it opened and two of those were slain cops  :ohno:

You're taking offense to what I said ?   

If so just relax man.

I'm just speaking about a bad neighborhood that has a lot more crime at night than during the day. 

Wow, what do ya know.
Police investigating three separate incidents of guns fired

Wichita police are investigating three separate shootings that happened within an hour’s time early Sunday.

The first shooting was at 3:30 a.m. when officers responded to a call that shots were fired at Roseberry and Hillside, according to Sgt. Bob Gulliver, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department. At that shooting, several shell casings were found at the location and a 20-year-old woman told officers that she and a friend were driving in the area when an unknown person began shooting at them. The woman sustained minor injuries from broken glass. No suspect was located.

At 4 a.m., officers responded to shots fired in the 3300 block of South I-135. Two men, ages 20 and 27, told officers there were driving onto I-135 when a black 2000s model Dodge Charger sped past them and fired a shot at their vehicle, striking the driver’s side window. The 20-year old sustained minor injuries from flying glass. The shooter was not located, Gulliver said.

At 4:30 a.m., a drive-by was reported in the 600 block of South Belmont when a 35-year-old woman reported she was wakened after hearing several gunshots. She discovered a bullet hole in her front door and two additional bullet holes on the residence. A 13-year-old girl and a 46-year-old man were in the house at the time. There was no suspect information.

My favorite Thai place in Wichita is near there too...  maybe you can do a Louie CK style bang-bang and hit up both.

Ok, so here is my best Pete Kansas Ave Mexican joint review impersonation.

Mrs. Gooch and I headed down to waaay south Wichita to try this fabled chicken at Krispy's Chicken. It is quite the drive from my house in NW Wichita or as Trim always referred to it as Hutch :driving:. Pulled in to the parking lot and as you can see they really rolled the red carpet out for us with a spot right in front of the door. The building was much nicer than I expected. They really polished up a turd here.



As we entered the building we were greeted by a blast of very hot chicken grease filled air.  I did smell delicious but it was uncomfortably warm in there. As we perused the menu the Asian girl behind the counter seemed a bit uneasy that we did not know exactly what we wanted. We were there for chicken of course we were just trying to decide on sides. She was very friendly and said just yell at me when you are ready to order and proceeded to go to the window to pack an order. We both settled on a two piece white. I'm a breast man what can I say? Sides were a large mashed potatoes & gravy and large fried okra. The girl proceeded to tell us it would be about a five minute wait for chicken. She seemed overly apologetic about this wait. I told her no worries as I knew we would be getting super fresh chicken. The price? $12 and change. As I was being rung up for this an Asian dude behind the counter came up apologized yet again and said it would be a five minute wait.  Again I assured him this was not an issue.



As for the fellow clientele in there. They seemed to be strictly "south siders". This is clearly not a "destination" dinning location. This guy with the tear drop tattoo did not seem to be as receptive as I was to the five minute wait. He did however stick it out which lead me to believe that this chicken might be legit.



The mashed potatoes and gravy was a one large container with the gravy on top of the scoop of taters. This concerned me greatly as I thought the gravy to potatoes ratio would be to heavily skewed to the potatoes side. It was not and you could really control the ratio on how you maneuvered your spoon. This would obviously only works in a his and hers situation and you did not mind eating out of the same container as your partner. The gravy was a peppered white gravy. Very tasty. The okra was very bland.



Now for the chicken. It was served smoking ass hot in a paper boat type container. This is a terrible but frugal choice by the management. This does not allow the chicken to breath and caused a soggy crust condition as I had to wait for this to cool before eating. The crust is a light batter not heavily seasoned. In my opinion it needs more spice. It is very similar to Church's. The chicken itself was moist and generally good. You could contribute the moistness more to the fact that this chicken had come directly out of the fryer to the table. You can tell they do not marinate their chicken. They should as this is key for great fried chicken IMO. All in all it is an adequate piece of fried chicken. The sun was getting low in the sky so we quickly finished our meal and got the eff out, you know cause crime and all.   :Carl:



Final thoughts? This truly is something in Wichita that does not suck. It's not bad but also nothing special. It is very meh. Much like Wichita itself it is adequate but nothing to go out of your way to experience. So if for some truly unfortunate reason you find yourself in that neck (pun intended) of Wichita give it a try.  :thumbsup:

short bad reviews about anything are from people that are offended easily and don't have the patience nor the intellect to judge something objectively. as such, I would def try this place if I ever get stuck in a tornado or hurricane or something in Wichita. so I'll just have to take Goochs review because I won't ever eat there
