Combine the goodness of southern fried chicken with the convenience of eating food off a stick, add in the low cost of gas station dining and late-night, bourbon induced hunger..and you have culinary greatness at 1:00 a.m. Well, the dining afficiandos at Bon Appetit Magazine have finally recognized what we’ve all known for years…”chicken on a stick” from the Chevron Food Mart in Oxford is simply one of the finest foods conceived by man*:
Chevron Food Mart
Okay, so this one comes out of left field. But the Chevron, on University and South Lamar, is the place for late-night socializing…and improbably good snacks. The quite literally named chicken-on-a-stick is oddly delicious, especially if it’s 1:00 a.m. and it has been a night of multiple Sazeracs. 502 South Lamar Boulevard; 662-234-0275

*Do not, I repeat DO NOT, sleep on the pizza rolls at that place. Everyone want to just jump on the Yard Bird on a stick right out of the gate, but late night Chevron veterans know the rolls is where its at.
