Best Fried Chicken: Cluck N Cleaver
The famous Cluck N Cleaver is jointly owned by sisters, Nicole and Francine Gomes. Francine is the farmer, raising the chickens and caring for them as they grow; Nicole is the chef and a previous Top Chef Canada contestant, bringing more than 20 years of kitchen experience to the table. As they set out on their three-year anniversary, Cluck N Cleaver celebrates another year of providing Calgarians with some of the best fried chicken this city has ever seen.
Whether you’ve tried corporate chains, like KFC and Popeyes, or perhaps you’ve never had fried chicken in Calgary, Cluck N Cleaver is an absolute must-try. This locally owned and operated business has arguably some of the best fried chicken you’ll find in western Canada. Prior to opening their small business, the Gomes sisters were known across the city for sharing their tasty chicken at various local community food events. The company’s secret spice blend highlights a crispy skin with juicy, tender meat on the inside.
