Best … er, any fried chicken in Duluth?

Where can you get a good fried-chicken dinner in Duluth and/or the surrounding area? I’m not referring to KFC, or any take-home places, but a sit-down restaurant that serves fried-chicken diner that’s fresh and hot and doesn’t get cold by taking it into the house from the car during our cold winters. I’ve been searching and I’ve come up with nothing, I even found a post here that’s from a month shy of a year ago:

Best Fried Chicken in Duluth

However, the closest thing listed, Sammy’s, only has wings now, (which are great), but is not a real fried (or broasted) chicken dinner, no matter how many you eat. Cassidy’s down in Hinckley had a decent one, but last time I was there they no longer serve it and vaguely said they might bring it back at times. It seemed more commonplace when I was a kid, but no one seems to have a good fried-chicken dinner anymore, at least around here, because I see them all the time on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Fresh batch of suggestions welcome!

Did you try Eddie's World Famous Ribs in Superior?


Note: Not open on Mondays.

Sammy's Lakeside still serves broasted chicken until 9pm. 

But it is not a traditional "Sit Down" as there is no waitstaff and there are only 12 seats. 

But you can eat it there, and it is hot and delicious.

The Upper Deck in Superior (located next the airport) serves fried chicken dinner. I've never eaten it, so I can't vouch for its ranking, but I've seen it and it is a very generous serving size.

Probably Twin Gables over in Brule

I go to Sammy's West Duluth. Best chicken in the area!

Sammy's in Duluth Heights has chicken!  It's the best!  We get it every time my family is in town.  Not a sit-down restaurant but still can't beat it.

Thanks for the ideas, Twin Gables in Brule sounds like a good one, my mom knows someone from her work that lives there and they say it's a good, friendly place. The Upper Deck might be a possibility too.
