Oh Kickin’ Chicken, we loved you when we were in college and we still love you today — especially after a festive night on the town. This local chain’s seven locations now service more than hungry CofC Cougars and spans two states. But it’s what got the biz started, super tasty chicken sandwiches, that always lures us back. We’re suckers for the Johnny, a mighty meal of chicken, bacon, barbecue sauce, and cheddar cheese with an oh-so-necessary side of ranch dressing. When we’re rolling deep with friends, the wings always satisfy, particularly with an adventurous crowd willing to forego the traditional teriyaki sauce for the Thai chili option. Considering our loyalty now totals 10+ years, this chicken is clearly doing something right. —Kinsey Gidick
