Seeing KFC and Popeye's as finalists for fried chicken has killed any desire I had to keep on responding to this reader's poll.
Or it should compel you to fill out the poll! For close to thirty years, McDonald's won our Best of Denver Readers' Poll for Best French Fries -- but one amazing year, a local beat out McD's. No reason that can't happen with Best Fried Chicken, too. So go ahead and vote here!
And remember: The editorial pick in all Best of Denver categories is independent of the readers' choices.
