Who would have guessed that one of the best-selling dishes at Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami is fried chicken? You would assume it would be some kind of crab, right? But Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak informed us otherwise.

If you don’t know, Joe’s Stone Crab is widely considered to be the most famous restaurant on Miami Beach. The restaurant attracts top politicians and even celebrities like Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak. And while the crab is obviously tasty, evidently Sajak is also a big fan of Joe’s crispy, fried chicken. And do you know what’s the best part? A half chicken costs just $6.95.

The official Wheel of Fortune Twitter account posted a clip of Sajak at Joe’s Stone Crab on Thursday evening. Alongside it, they wrote, “Don’t be chicken — tell us your recipe, @patsajak!”

“I have never come to Miami without going to Joe’s Stone Crab,” Sajak says in the video. “You might be surprised to know the second best-selling dish here is…”

“Our six ninety-five fried chicken!” a representative for Joe’s chimes in.

“Now that’s a great deal!” Sajak responds.

“It is a great deal — it’s a half-fried chicken and the price will stay the same,” the man says.

‘Wheel of Fortune’ Host Makes ‘Very Good’ Fried Chicken

Now, Joe’s Stone Crab may very make some of the best fried chicken in the country. After watching the clip, Vanna White and Pat Sajak explained just how much they love eating there.

“That was one of the best meals,” White says.

“You know, I love Joe’s. I could eat at Joe’s every night, I think,” Sajak agrees. “And as much as I love the stone crab, I do like the fried chicken. I’m a big fried chicken fan and theirs is really good.”

But evidently, the longtime Wheel of Fortune host can make some pretty good fried chicken in his own right.

“You know, this will surprise you,” Sajak tells White. “I don’t think you know this about me. I make very good fried chicken.’

“Really?” White asks.

After being together on Wheel of Fortune for nearly 40 years, it’s safe to say that Pat and Vanna know just about everything about one another. But she didn’t know that Sajak actually has a secret fried chicken recipe.

“Yes. Would you like me to make some for you?”

“Yes! You heard that,” White says pointing to the audience.

“Indeed. We’ll invite you over some night for the fried chicken,” Sajak says. “But I can’t give you the recipe.”

We can only hope that if Pat Sajak and Vanna White do get together for a fried chicken night, we’ll see some footage of it on social media.
