Addendum is located in a brown shack behind Ad Hoc. Orders are taken at the shack but the actually food is cooked inside Ad Hoc. Picnic benches were available for diners to eat on the premise but most patrons took their food to-go. On the menu, there were two options available: Fried Chicken or BBQ. Each entree came with two sides, corn succotash and potato salad. The price was $16.50 plus tax. We ended up getting both entrees to try out.

I dunno but it seemed like my taste buds were playing tricks on me because I felt the fried chicken was just ok. Don't get me wrong, it was good but I don't believe it's the best I've had. It was fried perfectly and tasted juicy but of the three chicken pieces that were given, at least one of them was overly salty. I actually liked the BBQ beef brisket more than the chicken. The BBQ sauce on top of the beef slices had a nice kick to it with an essence of tamarind. The biscuit was homemade and I enjoyed it. Of the two sides, the corn succotash was the highlight of the day. The corn was fresh and sweet with a little heat. Loved it! I should have bought an extra side of the corn succotash but it cost an additional $5.

Overall, it was worth the 1.5 hour drive from Stockton since I couldn't go wrong with either entree. Orders were quickly sold out within an hour and 15 minutes. As for the best fried chicken in America, I'm thinking Willie Mae's has taken the honors but I may need to taste test it again since my taste buds are much more refined then ever before.
