Bill Williams on Main and KFC on West Gray


Recommended Posts

Least we forget a picture of good ole Bill Williams, one of my favorite haunts when I was a teen. Bill Williams was located at 6515 Main. Known for their savage style fried chicken. The drive in portion of the restaurant was the big attraction for me. A hamburger and a drink that took an hour to eat gave you ample time for some boy to notice you and start up a conversation.

What is "savage style" fried chicken?


It's chicken that the kid from "The Wonder Years" enjoys ;)


Seriously though it was just their "style" of chicken in the sense that KFC's is Kentucky style.


Savage of course is referring to Indians. I believe my folks had told me it was pan fried chicken which is what the Indians on the roof in the picture are doing. Although I'm not old enough to have actually eaten their to confirm. Other than that I don't know what real connection the chicken had to Indians.
