Last week, in my analysis of the sad state of Miami's diner scene, I touched on the unpalatable fried chicken being served at 11th Street Diner. If they want to continue serving sub par Southern fried chicken, that's their prerogative, however it's about time they took the "Best in Miami by New Times" label off their menu just beneath the Southern fried chicken.

First off, fried chicken begins with the breading, which must be crispy and seasoned. Well, 11th Street's breading has a pliable consistency and is bland.
Next comes the meat, which was dry and also tasteless. Not only was the chicken bone dry, but each piece, including the breast, had too little flesh. Why not note where their chicken is sourced from and what steroids or other chemicals you might use.
11th Street Diner, I don't mean to be picking on you. Perhaps it's just time to update your menu.
