I've been going to Elders for years and years! I live in southern Missouri now so I don't get the chance very often but love the food when I do! Their fried chicken is wonderful! That's always been my favorite!

We just returned from a month's trip to Central America and we're craving some good fried chicken. Of course, our first meal upon returning was to Elder's for their uniquely prepared fried chicken. It was as good as we remembered.
