In his famous classical conditioning experiment, Ivan Pavlov proved that it’s physically impossible for a Russian scientist's mouth not to water when it says the word “fried chicken.” Moisten your own chicken receptacle with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 of award-winning chicken and more at Zorn's. Zorn's dishes out crispy poultry at three locations.
Zorn's award-winning fried chicken comes in old-fashioned boxes, buckets, and gigantic baskets with homemade fixins and all-time-favorite sides. Pair a half-chicken dinner for one (rotisserie-style $8.49, fried $9.99) with two of sixteen sides such as creamed spinach, macaroni and cheese, or garlic mashed potatoes ($2.39 individual, $4.29 large). Or, high-five Freud with a bucket o' breasts: four plump, juicy pieces of skinless white meat Southern-fried to a deep-golden, crunchy glow ($12.99). For a competitive-eating party, pour 50 barbecued wings from a bucket onto the table and devour a path to glory ($29.95). Click here to see the full menu.
Long Island's scenery has changed since the day in 1940 when Zorn's story began, but neither the old-fashioned attention to detail of Zorn's takeout recipes nor humanity's hunger for deep-fried birdflesh has altered in the slightest. Sate your own fried desires with today's Groupon.
