    I still can’t believe the holy chicken trinity on E. 5th and Cleveland is still there after all these years.

    they recently converted the rally’s on the northwest corner to a 4th chicken restaurant

    How is it getting stronger? I die a little every time I drive by there.

    Ahh, ya beat me. I believe it’s called “Buckeye Chicken”?

    As for the closed KFC I noticed that last week and ideally some kind of urban infill would be great (the urban overlay has been implemented on High…). This sprawling area totally disconnects Clintonville from Old North Columbus.

    purveyors of fried chicken have apparently found their market at that weird-ass corner. Church’s is always packed when i drive past.

    Isn’t that the place that says everything is just $1? That kind of scares me.

    That place is like Four Corners, but with fried chicken.

    Mebbe fried chicken is the new Starbucks.

    Yeah, I always giggle when I drive through “The Chicken District”. ;)

    We stopped going to KFC. We get probably 50% incorrect orders, and often, stale chicken.

    Lemme get this straight-a fast food restaurant filled an order incorrectly and the food wasn’t fresh? I don’t believe it!

    Husband asked me what I’d prefer on that corner – a KFC or an abandoned KFC. hmm, that’s a toughie… hopefully it won’t stay shuttered for long.

    Personally I think it’d make a great location for a Clintonville Graffiti Burger.

    Are these the same people that did Buckeye Fried Chicken over on the East side?

    “Buckeye Fry” used to be my spot when they were over on Livingston and I lived off Bryden.

    I recently had a dream of a man in a white suit, holding out a dozen eggs to me from a balcony surrounded by live oaks draped in Spanish moss… THE COLONEL, TRYING TO SEND A MESSAGE FROM SHORES BEYOND? Clearly there is a disturbance in the Force. Go to the intersection of 5th and Cleveland at the stroke of midnight, close your eyes and spin thrice counterclockwise. If you survive, walk into whatever fried chicken establishment you are now facing, and order one drumstick. If any part of the fried coating forms the letters “ZEBULON”, liquidate all of your assets and leave the country immediately. You’re welcome.
