Here are five top spots serving fried chicken that will knock your socks off.
- Sam's Southern Eatery Wichita: 6600 W. Central Ave., Wichita, KS 67212
Sam's Southern Eatery opened their first location in 2008, and since then, they have added several more locations throughout the southern states. Their menu contains a lot of southern favorites, including fried green tomatoes and po'boys, but they're particularly well known for their chicken.

- Chick N Max: 3520 N. Maize Rd. #200, Wichita, KS 67205
If you're in a hurry or prefer a more casual setting, Chick N Max is a great place to get fried chicken. They even have a drive-through. Their Bucket of Tenders is a favorite when dining with a group. You can dip them in the tasty buttermilk garlic, jalapeno lime, and spicy BBQ dipping sauces. Pair them with a side, like the onion rings or white cheddar mac & cheese, and enjoy.
Chick N Max also serves tasty chicken and waffles. You get two Belgian waffles per order, so you'd better believe it's a filling meal.
- Chicken N Pickle: 1240 N. Greenwich Rd., Wichita, KS 67206
Chicken N Pickle has a sports bar-like vibe. They have pickleball courts and some fun yard games you can play while waiting for your food, too. Stop by the bar for a cocktail or a craft beer, but don't leave without trying the fried chicken.
At Chicken N Pickle, you can order a whole or half chicken to share. Another favorite is the NKC Hot Chicken sandwich, made with fried chicken, pickles, hot sauce, and coleslaw. You could also try Bill's Chicken Salad, made with fried chicken, avocado, artichokes, and egg in a lemon vinaigrette dressing.
- Stroud's: 3661 N. Hillside Ave., Wichita KS 67219
Stroud's doesn't deep fry their chicken; they pan fry it. However, it happens to be some of the best pan-fried chicken you can get in Wichita. With a three-piece dinner, you get fried chicken, plus a dinner salad or chicken soup, green beans, and a choice of potato. Finish it all off with a homemade cinnamon roll, and you won't have room for seconds.
