It's National Fried Chicken Day. No one really knows who started this special day or where it originated. When you get the urge for fried chicken, where do you go?

Locally, a number of cafes and restaurants offer fried chicken on the menu plus you can find some fast-food joints that also serve it up.

Maybe your preference for the fried cluck-cluck is right at home. How many times do we remember eating our Moms' or Grandma's special recipe.

Across the state, you can find a large number of spots that serves it up. According to the website onlyinyourstate.com, some of the best fried chicken is all over the state.

You'll find it out down in Branson, St. Louis, St. Joseph, Kansas City and points in-between.

Whether it's crispy or slightly browned, go get some chicken and enjoy this special day!
