The Best Fried Chicken Sandwiches In Miami

Because it’s been too long since your last fried chicken sandwich.

Personally, we’re always in the mood for a fried chicken sandwich. Wake us up at 3am with a blow horn (please don’t, by the way) and we’ll eat one. Wednesday at 11:36am? Why not. Trapped in an airport for a six-hour layover? We’ll eat three, even if they taste like plastic. Luckily, the ones on this guide taste very good. And they’re all currently available for takeout or outdoor dining.


The Sandwiches

Tasty Planet

Rosie’s

$$$$
$$$$ 439 NW 4th Ave

Rosie’s is a pop-up that we so badly hope becomes a permanent fixture in the Miami restaurant world. Everything here is good, but especially the Chicky Sandwich. The juicy piece of chicken is fried in a way that produces all those wonderful, crunchy, jagged little pieces of breading. Then it’s coated in buffalo sauce and topped with B&B pickles and a little lemon aioli to balance the whole thing out. There’s also a side of crispy yucca chips. Order this as soon as you can. Then order it again and again, it’s that good. Check out the menu and get one online.

Tasty Planet

United States Burger Service

$$$$
$$$$ 8300 NE 2nd Ave

This vendor inside The Citadel specializes in burgers but their fried chicken sandwich is absolutely worth a try. The “Carrier Pigeon” is made from ground chicken and formed into an aesthetically pleasing little round patty. The breading is thin but crispy and there’s a crunchy cabbage situation on top that we approve of.

Tasty Planet

1-800-Lucky

$$$$
JapaneseChineseRamenSushi  in  Wynwood
$$$$ 250 NW 23rd St Unit 312

Tâm Tâm is a new Vietnamese vendor inside Wynwood’s 1-800-Lucky, and they’ve got a very large fried chicken sandwich you should meet before their residency is up at the end of September. Nothing about this sandwich is subtle. The chicken thigh is twice-fried, with a very thick and crispy breading. Also invited to the party: caramelized fish sauce aioli, pickles, cucumber, and fresh herbs. It requires two hands and all your concentration to eat, but it’s worth the effort. You can order for takeout online or eat outside on 1-800-Lucky’s patio.

Tasty Planet

Over Under

$$$$
$$$$ 151 E Flagler Street

Over Under is a new spot in Downtown that’s proving to be very good at putting meat between pieces of bread. Their cheeseburger is quite tasty, but so is their fried chicken sandwich. It’s a pretty straightforward version: a boneless chicken thigh polished with hot honey sauce, pickles, lettuce, mayo, and a sesame seed bun. It glistens in the sun and goes well with the frozen piña colada. They have outdoor sidewalk seating and online ordering for takeout.

Sparky's Roadside BBQ

$$$$
BBQ  in  Downtown
$$$$ 204 NE 1st St

Sparky’s in Downtown serves a fried chicken sandwich that’s smoked before it’s fried, which gives it a slight barbecue flavor. That’s a good thing, by the way. It comes on a sturdy bun that’s buttered and toasted and you can also add American cheese to the sandwich. You should probably do that. Sparky’s is available for takeout and on most major delivery apps.

Tasty Planet

Boia De

$$$$
$$$$ 5205 NE 2nd Ave

Boia De’s fried chicken sandwich has been one of the all-stars of the “pivot to takeout” era. They used to serve this thing back when the team ran a taco truck in the Design District, and it’s still as good as we remember. Between the crunchy chicken, the creamy avocado, and the refreshing slaw, there’s a lot of contrast going on here. One big thing to note about this dude, though: right now they’re only serving it on Sundays. So set a reminder and be prepared to order online.

Kush

$$$$
Burgers  in  Wynwood
$$$$ 2003 N Miami Ave

As difficult as it is to order anything but a burger at Kush, you should make an effort to branch out with their Farmstyle Chicken Sandwich. It is, like everything here, excellent. Great ingredients, perfectly cooked, and crispy enough to hear from a table away. Get the 50/50 fries too, because sweet potato and regular fries can get along. They’re also serving this at Kush by Spillover in Coconut Grove. Both locations are open for outdoor dining and takeout.

Le Chick

$$$$
American  in  Wynwood
$$$$ 310 NW 24th St

The Wynwood spot Le Chick is, in fact, pretty good at chicken. They cook it rotisserie style, fried, and in sandwich form with their Fried Chicken Bun. The chicken here is nice and crispy. The bun is squishy, but firm enough to hold the whole thing together. And there’s swiss cheese melted evenly over it all. Our only complaint about this one is the bib lettuce, which gets a little soggy and sad when heated. But it’s pretty easy to just yank off like a tablecloth. Le Chick is open for outdoor dining and takeout.

Fuku

$$$$ 201 SW 2nd Avenue

Fuku is a delivery-only restaurant from the Momofuku team operating out of a few different ghost kitchens around Miami. These are simple, but tasty, chicken sandwiches, served on soft potato buns. There are a couple of simple versions with pretty much just fried dark meat and pickles, and some more elaborate versions - like the chicken, bacon, ranch sandwich. But, because it is delivery-only, we can’t vouch that your sandwich will arrive in pristine condition. Smooshed, cold, or very late sandwiches - it’s all a possibility. But so is a perfectly fine fried chicken sandwich.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar

$$$$
$$$$ 1600 Lenox Ave

There’s a reason Yardbird is always busy. They’re really good at fried chicken - and who doesn’t like fried chicken? Not you, who has made it this far in a fried chicken sandwich guide. So consider ordering their Nashville hot chicken sandwich if you’re ever in South Beach. (They’re open for outdoor dining right now as well.) It’s big, crunchy, spicy, and will give you an excuse to get a side of mac and cheese.
