You don't have to live in the South to have some darn good fried chicken.

Eat This, Not That! compiled a list of the best fried chicken joints across the United States with the help of Yelp — so you don't have to. Here's how they came up with the list:

"Yelp looked at restaurant reviews that mentioned fried chicken, then chose the best spot in each state using "a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning 'fried chicken.'" So you can rest assured that each spot on this list comes with reviews from real people. And almost every spot on this list is open for either dine-in or carryout options, so you can enjoy your food any way you like. Your dinner plans are solved!

In New Mexico, the best restaurant to get fried chicken is Nexus Brewery & Restaurant in Albuquerque. Here's what Eat This, Not That! has to say about the fried chicken joint:

"'This place has nailed down the magic process to produce the perfect fried chicken. Add a red chile-infused oil and it's beyond amazing,' one Yelp reviewer wrote. If you're a fan of spicy chicken, Nexus Brewery is a must-visit."

Nexus Brewery & Restaurant is located at 4730 Pan American Fwy NE in Albuquerque.
