Beckett's Soul Food, Reading, PA

I must admit that I have never had so much good food from such a modest city street corner establishment. John Beckett, who oversees all the cooking when he’s not doing it himself, takes pride in his product. He’s been there for 30 years across from the Police Athletic League of Reading. All the cops who get assigned to the PAL end up putting on 20 pounds from eating at Beckett’s. I rest my case. Call and get some takeout food because there’s no seating.

fried chicken

The thing that surprised me most was that the fried chicken didn’t leave me with greasy fingers. The chicken was crisp outside and moist inside.
