Best Broasted Chicken around Alexandria.

16 posts in this topic

Kind of an off the wall question, but where would you recommend to go for Broasted chicken. We are going to be up on Lake Ida in late September and want to have one night to eat out. We decided Broasted Chicken since we can't get that here. Any suggestions. tongue.gif

Chet's on Lake Irene by Miltona. I don't know if it's broasted but it's good but greasy. Good salad bar and drinks too. Place has been going like 50 years.

Chet's has been known for its chicken for many, many years. There is no other.

Kobear is right, good but greasy. They would also be the closest unless Miltona supper club has it. If you decide to go to Chets, and it's the weekend I would recommend reservations. I know the Miltona supper club is under new ownership, does anyone know if they have broasted chicken?

I just found out the Miltona supper club does have broasted chicken, sorry I can't give the phone number got a message it's not allowed. Chet's chicken is not broasted, it's deep fried. Miltona is jsut off of highway 29.

I would also say Chets! Everytime somebody mentions chicken, I think of Chets.

I can't say for sure but if I recall correctly Miltona Supper Club has changed management in recent years but when I lived in that area about 15 years ago, they served by far the best broasted chicken around. I haven't visited that place in quite a number of years so I can't say how it is today.

I believe the Miltona Supper club off Hwy 29 is now called "Anderson's Outpost"

Chet's chicken has been famous in the area for a long long time. worth a try.

You could also venture west and try the Melby Outpost. Has been known to be good as well.

The Leaf Valley Mercantile on Cnty Rd 6 just west of the Lake is good food and great atmosphere too.

Miltona is now Club Miltona in "downtown" Miltona correct? Save Melby for the day before duck season and the first day of deer season. I used to live over there quite the ruckus on those days.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Looks like we may have to do a Broasted and a Fried chicken night now. Only 6 weeks to go for our trip to Ida. We are excited and now hungry. I will be sure to give you all a report on the fishing. Thanks again, Berdman.

I have had family in that area for over 100 years.

No one...and I mean no one...beats Chet's Lakeside Inn chicken near Lake Irene.

Call ahead, the place is packed on some weekends because they are so good!

If your on Ida (especially the West side) you can't beat the short run up to the Leaf Valley Merchantile for grub and a beer.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
