Midwest's Best Fried Chicken is Rip's Tavern in Ladd, IL
Huge fan of your show. One of my fiancé and my goals are to continue checking off the locations of DDDs in our home state of Illinois and then start moving on to other states. There's a small place in Ladd, IL called Rip's Tavern. The best fried chicken in the midwest and amazing fried pickles. Then to top the evening off you go across the way to Torri's Ice Cream Parlor and get some amazing dessert. Hope to see you there either in person or on TV. Enjoy!
