Montreal may not stand out when it comes to fried chicken spots like some of our pals down south but quite a few restaurants in town dish out some seriously tasty fried chicken.

And no offence to KFC, we’re focusing exclusively on local spots, no big-time franchises.

All of the following entries are offering take-out and delivery during the pandemic because nothing really hits the fried chicken itch like having it delivered right to your door.

Get out your stretchy pants and stock up on napkins, here are some of the best fried chicken spots in Montreal.
