The Best … Fried Chicken

/ Updated on March 19, 2021

Other than the Foodie's famous Southern Buttermilk Fried Chicken (only available to a select few…take a look at the photo), the best fried chicken dishes are, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:

(1) Cottage Cafe in Bethany Beach (only on Tuesday nights off-season!);

(2) Patsy's in Bethany Beach (call first! It is only served on certain nights)

(3) Gus & Gus' Place on the Rehoboth Boardwalk.

(4) The Counting House in Georgetown. ‘Beat Bobby Flay' chef Bill Clifton puts out a crispy crunchy crust with a few surprises in the taste dept.

(5) Kick ‘n' Chicken. Don't be turned off by the carryout atmosphere. Charlie Pollard makes very good chicken, cooked to order. If it's sub-par CALL THE STORE and tell them. He takes his pullets seriously.

    The new Ocean View Brewing Co in Ocean View (duh!) has outstanding fried chicken!

    Thompson Island has some very tasty (and kickin’) Fried Chicken. It was too spicy for my dining partner but just about right for me. The honey sauce!

    Foodie! Surely you are aware of Royal Farms? I know it’s not a high-falutin’ restaurant, but the chicken is the best around! And yes, we never let them seal it up in the bag. My husband and I like the one at the corner of Rt. 9/404 and Rt. 113 in Bridgeville.

      Savannah’s high-falutin’? Have you been there? I’m just teasing you — yes, I have had Royal Farms’ fried chicken many times, but I find that the quality often varies from location to location. But I’m not so high-falutin’ that it wasn’t high on my list… :o)
      Thanks for your note.

      I agree with you. Royal Farms has the best. It is not a restaurant but most have a little eating area.

      Totally agree, best Fried Chicken ever.

      When it’s fresh, Royal Farms might be THE best. Great flavorful crispy coating, juicy, Priced right, too. But it’s very inconsistent from location to location, even shift to shift at the same location. If I’m there for gas and hungry, I’ll check it out before ordering.
