Best Fried Chicken in Duluth

Where can someone go to get good fried chicken around the Twin Ports? KFC is absolutely terrible and I can’t think of any other place that has fried chicken.

Sammy's Pizza's West Duluth location has "broasted" chicken. You'd have to be the judge of how similar broasting is to frying. I have never tried Sammy's chicken, because I can't resist the pizza. And, of course, there's always the "Chicken Spur."

Paul's absolutely correct regarding best pizza in town. However, for on the rare evenings where pizza doesn't cut it: Is there a place in town with great fried chicken, and also with animal-friendly, non-torture policies re the chickens they use?

Before anyone hijacks this thread with a best pizza argument, I wasn't suggesting Sammy's was the best. I wrote that "I can't resist" it. There are probably five other pizzas I can't resist.

You know, I can't speak to the handling of the animals that become the fried chicken pieces, but Mount Royal Foods does have some pretty decent chicken in their deli. Same with Super One in West Duluth, believe it or not.

We've had good fried chicken at The Kitchen in Superior. Just be prepared to smell like a deep fryer the rest of the day.

I think all Sammy's Pizza places are equipped with a broaster. At least, I know West, Woodland and Lakeside do. Broasted chicken is absolutely excellent and I know Lakeside changes its oil frequently and uses good quality chicken.

Any restaurants that specialize in southern-style fried chicken? Anywhere near here?

Has anyone ever tried the broasted chicken at Pizza Man in Superior? I've been there a few times and they always have good, cheap food. I've been meaning to try the chicken sometime, but I've never gotten around to it.

+1 for ironic1! The moment I read Emmadogs comment that Portlandia scene popped into my head. I feel like the show reflects Duluth in too many ways.

Oh yeah, Culver's has great fried chicken.

Broasted chicken isn't the same as fried, but Lakeside Sammy's Pizza makes fantastic broasted chicken ... you can't go wrong!

Ironic1, AndrewOlson: am I mocked??? I am mocked!!! Say it ain't so!!! p.s. chicken torture is no laughing matter. p.s.s. although my presentation of same apparently is.

So we have Sammy's Pizza, Chicken Spur, Mount Royal Foods, West Duluth SuperOne, The Kitchen in Superior, Pizza Man in Superior, and Culver's. Is there any place in town that tops all of these? I'm talking flat out, best fried chicken these two towns have to offer.

Nobody is competent to cook anything in Duluth. Good luck.

Eddie's in Superior has delicious fried chicken, and everything else.

I haven't tried the fried chicken at any of the above-mentioned places, but I'm willing to bet Eddie's is the best. Great recommendation, Funkenschutz. I also think there might be fried chicken at A&Dubs. Not sure, though.

Meh, baked or grilled is best, but if I buy chicken out, it's usually on a Chicken Wednesday at Mount Royal (cheep!) really cheap or at one of the Super One's (as they offer baked as well) and have long-time been my son's faves.

No one mentioned Duluth Grill - that seems the most likely option, perhaps as a Sunday afternoon special. +1 Ironic1 I have spent the last few months immersed in the world of community supported agriculture for a project that I am working on (I'll share some details here when it's ready). Therefore I relate to both Emmadogs concerns and the hilarity of the video. When I started Speedy Wienie in 2004 one of our signature products was a nitrate-free, dye-free, grass-fed, free range wienie that was delicious. Oh, and I knew the producers and could visit the farm any time. People were not interested in that product at that time. They were as a curiousity, and, like veggie wienies which I also had, they seemed to be more interested in the fact that I was selling the product than in actually purchasing and eating it in any volume that would sustain the cost of carrying it. Then again, I probably wasn't marketing it right - I'm no business genius, that's for sure. So, times and attitudes are changing, as they should, Still be surprised if enough local people would pay $40 a bucket for local, free-range fried chicken "done right" in order to sustain a business. But I'd love to see a business like that thrive. I think the best bet is to call up In.Dog.Neato bring over a growler or two of rootbeer and a deck of cards and enjoy the home cooked version. In fact, now that I'm thinking of it, maybe me and the goslings will join you.

Someday - I would like to do this (the free range bucket o' home made chix for $40) Maybe next summer. We have an outdoor fryer. Can't do it indoors because the fryer has to remain gluten free.
