These Acadiana Gas Stations Have the Best Chicken Tenders
In Louisiana, we have better food at gas stations than some fine restaurants up north. And usually, the farther out into the country you get, the better the gas station food. From biscuits to burritos, taters to tenders, south Louisiana gas stations have some tasty food. It may not be the most healthy, but your taste buds won't care about that at all.
In this survey, we set out to find, specifically, the best-fried chicken tenders in all of Acadiana, not just Lafayette. Ironically, almost all of the Top 5 is not located in Lafayette. As we watched the responses on social media, we noticed people being very passionate about their choice of gas station chicken tenders.
The most unusual comment of all respondents was from an individual in New Iberia who claims she's never eaten gas station food...ever. Now, keep in mind she is supposedly originally from Iberia Parish.
This was a fun survey with excellent results. We thank you for helping us find the best gas station fried chicken tenders in all of Acadiana.
