Let me just say this first, we perfected fried chicken. While all this buzz exists around who makes the best fried chicken sandwich, let’s channel it towards the many dope Black chefs and restaurants across North America instead.  No shade to all the folks who love a good Popeyes fix (cuz I do too!) but have y’all ever had fried chicken with a jerk honey glaze?  Or gone into a black owned restaurant and immediately heard your favourite tune & have a dope conversation with the owner/chef?  I have  & nothing beats having an amazing meal,  knowing who made it & that your dollars are going back into your community.

We put a call out on our Instagram to learn where y’all go for some delicious fried chicken and the response was amazing! We compiled a list of 50 + of those suggestions. Check em out and feel free to keep adding to the suggestions! We challenge you to give these spots a try instead and when you do tag us  @Blackfoodie.co in your pics! Ps. if you’d like to support the work we do at Black Foodie to highlight Black Food culture, chefs & restaurants through dope content & events, subscribe to our newsletter & shop  Black Foodie.
