1. Fried Chicken at Goco.   C-VILLE Weekly recently formed a panel to determine the best fried chicken in the Charlottesville areaMichie Tavern beat out a field that included many great sources of fried chicken, but not one that some say is the area’s best:  the Goco food mart on Harris St.  Already a favorite among Public Utilities employees and other blue collar workers, Goco’s chicken warrants a wider following.  It is seriously good.

2. Heaven at BBQ Exchange.  Some people say Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.  At BBQ Exchange, Heaven is an extraordinary sandwich that we crave often.  The foundation is BBQ Exchange’s amazing pulled pork.  They put that on a house made roll, and pile high an over-easy egg, melted cheddar cheese, “Sticky Love” bacon, baconnaise, lettuce and tomato.  While the parts are great, the sum is even greater.  Heaven is right.
