What You'll Get
Deep-frying gained popularity on mountain expeditions, when adventurers breaded and deep-fried mittens to stave off frostbite and create a tasty last-resort meal. Chomp into some life-sustaining sustenance with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fried chicken and other classic chickeny fare at Rex’s Chicken.
Rex’s Chicken is known for its bite-sized, always-crispy, and ever-boneless fried-chicken chunks. A basket of the bitable bits ($6.99) comes served with a side (such as corn on the cob, fried okra, or coleslaw) and with the eatery's other notable nosh: frybread, a flat, deep-fried slab of delicious dough that's accompanied by honey. Or, let your chicken nap on a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions ($6.99), slip between a bun ($7.29), or jump into a hoagie drizzled with Rex's own sauce ($7.69). The menu has ample poultry possibilities. If you're a minimalist, just request 2 pounds of chicken ($21.99) in a bucket or in a pouch made from your T-shirt. Ask for the chicken jalapeño'd for a bit of an extra bang.
First opened in 1951 as part of a gas station, Rex's has since dispensed more than 30,000,001 pounds of chicken, enough to reach through space, wrap twice around the moon, and pull it close enough to Earth to kiss. Because every juicy chunk is boneless, Rex's has had to work hard to dispose of those calcium sticks, feeding many of them to a 500-foot-tall statue of Jackie Chan.
