Just about every restaurant these days seems to have a fried chicken sandwich on the menu, but not all of them are memorable. Seasoning, breading, and frying a bird while still keeping the meat tender and juicy isn’t and easy task, but these metro Detroit restaurants have risen to the challenge. From chili oil-dipped karaage chicken sandwiches at Ima to spicy fried chicken with tangy slaw at the Gripper Food Truck, here’s where to order the finest crispy birds between buns in metro Detroit.
1. The Gripper Food Truck
Detroit, MI 48221
Thanks, in part, to the fanfare over its fried chicken sandwich, Durden’s Catering is now slinging fried chicken sandwiches, fries, and banana pudding from a food truck parked in the lot next to Baker’s Keyboard Lounge. This well-traffic food truck is named after its flagship sandwich, the Famous Spicy Yung Gripper, featuring crispy, spicy fried chicken with pickle chips, tangy slaw, pepper jack cheese, and bang sauce. Every order comes with saucy parmesan fries. Place orders in person and note that the truck only accepts payment with cash or Cash App, so prepare accordingly.
2. Ali’s Pizza & Burgers
Hamtramck, MI 48212
This certified halal Bangladeshi-American restaurant is known for its chicken 65 “burger,” a fried chicken sandwich inspired by the spicy bright red chicken dish widely served at Bangladeshi restaurants. Ali’s marinates its bird in spices before dredging and frying and then topping the crispy chicken with more spicy sauce and sauteed veggies. Call in orders for carryout.
