Summer 2013 Delaware Dining Guide: Where to Find Great Deals on Fried Chicken


Jimmy’s Grille, Bridgeville and Dewey Beach
260-9915 (Bridgeville), 337-7575 (Dewey), deweybeachlife.com
Tops in the finger-lickin’ good department. The recipe is another closely guarded secret.

Kick n’ Chicken, Lewes and Long Neck
644-4151 (Lewes) and 947-1110 (Long Neck), kicknchickende.com
The restaurant touts its fresh, never frozen, never over-priced pieces.

Lettie’s Kitchen, Hockessin
239-7816, lettieskitchen.com
This is broasted chicken, meaning, the chicken is broasted using a pressure fryer. The coating is crisp and the meat is juicy. Don’t forget a side of potato salad—or a napkin—all deliciously inexpensive.

Walt’s Chicken Express, Wilmington
429-2587, waltsexpress.com
It’s the best—no question. Owner Larry Fletcher learned from the master, the late Harry Sheppard, founder of the original Walt’s Flavor Crisp. The recipe is a secret. We’ve tried to get them to talk for years.
