Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to fried chicken. Get a sailor's worth of energizing chicken with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of poultry plates, sandwiches, and other all-American eats at Devore's Hopocan Gardens in Barberton.
Devore’s Hopocan Gardens serves Barberton-style chicken, which is locally raised, cut to conserve the tastiest bits of meat, lightly breaded for a natural, seasoning-free flavor, and deep-fried to a golden brown. The crisp, fresh taste of a classic white-meat combination (a breast, back, leg, and wing; $8.95) or a large dark platter (three thighs, two drumettes, and a back; $9.55) makes Colonel Sanders roll over in his roost. Most dinners come with a choice of three sides, such as hot sauce, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes. The menu of fowl-focused palates includes chicken buckets, hot wings, sandwiches, and paprikash (chicken stewed in a paprika sauce), along with freshwater pike, shrimp, and ham.
Lubricate food tubes with an old-fashioned root beer ($1.85) or a pitcher of Miller Lite ($7.95) while counting flying chicken wings in the cozy, casual eatery. Devore's website claims Barberton chicken joints serve more than 7.5 tons of chicken every week, making it either the chicken capital of the world or the secret porthole to another world made of chicken.

- This is the best chicken around, and the meals include 2 heaping side dishes. – lsfrnks, Yahoo! Local
