Maybe you’re having people over for the Eagles game, or maybe you’ve been craving wings since you smelled them at a bar the other night. Either way, Andy’s is the best place on South Street to go for fried chicken. Their double-fried Korean recipe results in an audible crunch, and the sweet chili sauce adds just the right amount of heat. If you’re taking it to go, make sure to call ahead to place your order. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to stock up on paper towels.
