10 Finger-Lickin’ Fried Chicken Spots

It’s a little-known mystery exactly how National Fried Chicken Day came to be celebrated on July 6th, but one thing is clear: this classic comfort food is a beloved dish around the world.

A dish as crispy, tender, and delicious as fried chicken brings people together. In fact, the National Chicken Council found that 1.25 billion chicken wing portions were eaten on Super Bowl weekend alone.

This Wednesday, July 6th, gather some friends and celebrate National Fried Chicken Day by ordering in.

We’ve rounded up 10 takeout spots to order fried chicken across the country:

PG Clucks (Toronto, ON)

A small place with big taste, PG Clucks offers a lean menu of signature items. 24 hours in a lemon and herb brine, 6 hours in buttermilk, and dredged twice for extra crispiness – this is one guilty pleasure you won’t regret. 

Order from one of their two Toronto locations to get your hands on a deliciously crispy classic fried chicken sandwich. 

Address: 610 College St, Toronto & 1112 Queen St W., Toronto @pgclucks
