World Famous Fried Chicken Menu

Stop For Some Famous Fried Chicken on Route 66

When The Chicken Basket began serving hungry, road weary travelers in 1938, the meals were served in baskets for easy transport. Customers would, quite literally, run up to the counter and order “a basket.” Each basket was served with a few sides and a heap of napkins. We haven’t changed a thing, only added a few more “basket-worthy” items.
