Chicken may just be chicken, but Moo-Moo's fried chicken is the stuff gods would eat, if they ate fried chicken, according to the voters. Moo-Moo was voted best fried chicken in the Crossroads in the Advocate's Best of the Best competition.

When Lewis Neitsch's father started Moo-Moo, they were selling dairy products, but over the years they branched out. They moved into hamburgers in the 1950s and fried chicken in the 1970s.

Neitsch took over the business in 1985, and came in focused on improving the recipes. He wanted to make sure that every time someone bought fried chicken it would be an excellent piece of chicken down to the last bite, Neitsch said.

He thinks that is what has kept people coming back to his restaurant over the years and what has persuaded readers to vote for Moo-Moo as the best spot in town to buy fried chicken.

"The secret is you put out a product with tender loving care," he said. "We pride ourselves on putting out consistent product that tastes the same every time."
