You don't need to live in the American South to appreciate the delicacy that is a plate of cheap, greasy fried chicken. While Southerns are known far and wide for perfecting this crispy entree, many restaurants scattered across the country serve delicious fried chicken. Oftentimes, the best chicken can be found where you least expect it; a no-frills shop where the decor does not compensate for the quality of the meal. That's right. We're talking paper plates and disposable cutlery, diners that you see from afar and question if they are even operating anymore, and fried chicken served at its absolute best with a side or fries or a biscuit.

According to a list compiled by Cheapism, the best hole-in-the-wall fried chicken in Nebraska can be found at Mary Ellens located in Lincoln.

Here's what Cheapism had to say about the fried chicken served at this one-of-a-kind restaurant:

"While most people have discovered this soul food spot as a food truck, it's worth trying whether or not you have to take your food to the curb or eat inside. There's pulled pork and ribs, but get the fried chicken (but go ahead, get some cornbread, too)."
