Who's Got the Best Fried Chicken in DC?

When I asked this question on Twitter and Facebook yesterday, recommendations flew fast and furious. I'm no expert (thanks to my chicken issues) but my dude lives for it, so I was pondering where to take him for some pre-V Day dining.

Based on sheer numbers, Ooh's & Aah's of Washington, DC seems to be the winner, but I'm most interested in checking out Chef Gillian Clark's General Store in Silver Spring. Washington Post food editor Joe Yonan tipped me off to General Store - and I still regret that I never made it to Clark's Colorado Kitchen before it folded up shop. Plus, it's takeout so I can just pick up fried chicken, mac-n-cheese and bacon-y greens and be the couch potato that winter makes me.

Here's the full roster of recommendations in case anyone wants to do a Fried Chicken Tour of Washington, DC (and as always, let me know if I missed anyone amazing):

Henry's on U St. is the best, in my opinion. Oohs and aahs is good, but not as good as Henry's.
