Amazing Chicken, but even better are the FRITTERS!

Chicken on the Way is out of the way for me to pass on my drive home from work, but I heard from a friend that they have the best chicken in town, so I thought I would give it a try to try something different than the typical take-out restaurants. I was incredibly impressed! Chicken on the Way is a fixture in Calgary, you can't miss the big chicken standing outside the restaurant by the street! The location is very busy, and it doesn't have the best ambiance but for a fast food place, you will NOT be disappointed! You have to try the fritters, they are worth the drive in itself.

Catch of the day: Where to net fish and chips in Calgary

Although this fast-food joint is loved by Calgarians for its deep-fried chicken, Chicken On The Way also serves fish and chips. The batter-fried fish is served with a heaping portion of French fries and is one of the most economically priced two-piece fish-and-chip meals you’ll find.

The giant rooster on the corner of Kensington Road and 14th Street Southwest marks the location of Calgary’s best-beloved fried chicken shack. The standard order at the yellow-and-red takeout eatery is the four-piece with fries and two corn fritters. On the seafood side of the menu, enjoy a steamy shrimp dinner or the two-piece fish and chips. Add-ons include potato salad, coleslaw and gravy.
