This is what Cheapism had to say about the best fried chicken in Wisconsin:
"While these folks have been better known for Buffalo-style wing sauces since opening in 1991, TomKen's will keep its sauce well away from your bucket of fried goodness. Made with TomKen's own special-recipe batter, the thin-battered chicken can be served with coleslaw, fries, or bread in a deluxe bucket for an extra few bucks."
