I'm going to paint with a broad brush here and say we all love fried chicken. But some of the best fried chicken in Toledo is neither fried nor in Toledo. Bev's Kold Keg — two Ks — on Rt. 20 by Oak Openings in Swanton serves broasted chicken — and it is krazy good.
We meet Bev Mylek to find out why that is and why her beer is so cold with a K.
“I wouldn’t know,” she said laughing, “I don’t drink.”
Well that’s one mystery solved.
But the warmly ramshackle house on the busy road is home to much more to discover — comfort food at its finest, home cooking at its friendliest, and snap-crackle great broasted chicken that is as juicy as it is crunchy.
