The Best Fast-Food Fried Chicken Sandwich?

I see no Bojangles' on this list. I'm assuming they'll be in the spicy chicken taste test?

(Because, for the record, Bojangles' >>>>> Chick-fil-A)

The delicacy that is SWEET TEA

I have been having trouble finding the RIGHT way to make it, and a Texas-based company gave me the answer!
