Hayes and Octavia. Powell’s is a soul food kitchen, and a damn fine one. It’s almost the best fried chicken I’ve ever had, juicy with a crispy skin that is to die for. The corn muffins, albeit a little small, provide the perfect complement. There’s never been a wait in the several times I’ve gone here, and the staff is pretty friendly and prompt. There’s usually gospel playing from the jukebox in the front of the restaurant for added atmosphere. If you’re really hungry and want to spend the extra cash, the dinner plates should fill you up. But for under four dollars you can get two fresh pieces of chicken and a corn muffin that would make the Colonel run back to his kitchen crying. How can you go wrong?
