It will be no surprise to Las Vegas regulars and locals that Yardbird makes it onto our list. The flavors of the south run right through this menu, including what is probably the best fried chicken in Las Vegas. Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken is the dish to order. It’s half a chicken, brined for over 24 hours, then dragged through special herbs and spices before meeting the fryer. Have it with slaw and mac and cheese. A real ode to Southern cooking.

For something a little different, head to the Cosmopolitan resort which is full of tempting eateries including a fried chicken specialist. Momofuku, in contrast, is an Asian-inspired venture which offers noodles, buns, and massive pieces of meat to share like the whole roast duck. Their fried chicken is one of the sharing options, and diners must call ahead to order, ideally 48 hours in advance. This is two whole chickens, fried, carved, and served with caviar and truffle crème. A true treat for special occasions.

The sushi bar? For fried chicken? Yes, we’re serious. Head to the Red Rock Casino and look out for the gorgeous Japanese-inspired wooden exterior. Go inside to enjoy sushi at the bar and choose between sake or cocktails. Then for the chicken fans, just ask for the Blue Ribbon style fried chicken. In honor of this restaurant’s Japanese theme, this perfectly crispy chicken comes with just a touch of wasabi honey.

How many places serve world famous fried chicken all day long? Well, Hash House is one of those places, and thankfully they have a few locations around Las Vegas. The West Sahara venue is a bright and welcoming eatery, not too far from the Firefighters Memorial Park. It’s the fresh sage in the batter mix that makes this chicken, which comes with smoked bacon, tomatoes, and of course, waffles. Look out for the chicken starring in other menu items too. Don’t leave Vegas without trying it.

This enormous restaurant at the Redrock resort focuses on American comfort food, and offers some of the best fried chicken in town. The entire plate is a culinary experience. The house bacon and cheddar biscuits provide the carbs and a hit of smoky flavor, plus a very fresh tasting apple and cabbage slaw. The agave nectar is a sweet and spicy drizzle which the wait staff pour at the table, lending a theatrical note to proceedings. Wash it down with something off the impressive wine list then relax in the rustic charm.

This blues and rock-inspired venue is home to big-name performers- and big flavors in the restaurant. Southern inspiration flows through the menu, from voodoo shrimp to Georgia sundaes. The fried chicken is some of the best on the Strip: a quarter bird served with the house’s signature bourbon butter, plus creamy garlic mash and a heavenly slaw. Music might be the food of love, but the way to a chicken lover’s heart is through their stomach- and House of Blues makes diners fall in love every night.

Jardin is a grand looking eatery flanked by palm trees in the famous Wynn resort. Despite the apparent opulence, the restaurant is surprisingly relaxed. Basically, as long as guests don’t turn up in their swimwear, they’re allowed in. The menu runs from surprising options like endless spaghetti to classics like roasted salmon, but Jardin also does some surprising fried chicken on its dinner menu. The crispy chicken comes with cherry pepper slaw and mash; a classic with just a little twist to keep it interesting. A great way to refuel after a hard day’s relaxation.

This honkey-tonk dance-hall style saloon is one of the most fun places to eat out at the luxurious Treasure Island resort. Take a seat in a saddle at the bar, brave the mechanical bull, and fill up on some Southern-style fare. This includes some fried chicken which would “make Ma proud!”; crisp, juicy, and served with a range of sides plus the option to add more for a great price. Add a cup of chili and make it a cowboy-style meal to remember.

Right in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas, 7th & Carson is a welcome breath of fresh air. It’s relaxed, open all day and offering everything from baked pasta to braised short ribs. It’s no surprise, then, that this comfort-food centered spot does some of the best fried chicken in Las Vegas. Head down during the day and order the chicken and waffles for the ultimate sweet vs savory experience. Ask about bottomless Bloody Marys- ideal for brunch dates.

A few minutes’ walk from the Desert Breeze Park, Other Mama is the perfect place to refuel after a busy day out exploring Las Vegas’ Westside. The focus of this seafood joint is the raw bar, with sushi aplenty plus more Western options like Crudo and tuna tartare. This perhaps surprising entry onto our list makes it thanks to the excellent Japanese fried chicken- fresh tasting and crispy beyond belief. A great reason to venture further than the Strip.

Sometimes the only time to get the best fried chicken in Las Vegas is brunch time. Zen Kitchen in the Waldorf Astoria serves contemporary and seasonal cuisine through the week, but come the weekend, they do a range of brunch classics- with a twist. These include keto- friendly omelets, ham and cheese crepes, and their signature fried chicken dish, “Chic” & Waffle. Diners get a leg and a thig each plus a golden waffle. Simple, yet effective. The perfect morning remedy for the night before.

The original Blue Ribbon in New York’s SoHo was allegedly the restaurant where chefs themselves go to eat. It makes sense, then, that this Las Vegas Boulevard namesake has high aspiration- especially when it comes to the food. Oysters and other raw offerings, an eye-watering steak selection and a range of exciting platters means there’s something for everyone here. The fried chicken is high up on the menu of mains- no wonder, because it’s so popular. Served with mash and greens, this is a southern classic done well.

Part of the Park MGM resort, Bavette’s brings its Chicago based French-inspired flair to the Las Vegas Boulevard. Jazz music plays while diners devour steaks, seafood, and masses of tempting sides. Bavette’s spice fried chicken is their signature comfort food dish. For those thinking that it’s a shame to order fried chicken in a steakhouse- this will change that mindset. The triple stack of perfectly crispy chicken and its accompanying “boat” of gravy make everything worthwhile.

Housed in the glitzy Forum Shops, Joe’s is a top destination for freshly flown-in seafood and succulent steaks. The lounge is always vibrant and busy, and the dining room fills up quick so booking is highly recommended. When it comes to chicken, Joe’s keeps it simple. There’s the herb-roasted variety, or their famous Joe’s fried chicken, said to rival recipes from the South- and there’s plenty on the plate. Finish the night with a signature dessert- or a dirty martini.

This award-winning Downtown restaurant combines the classic old-school elements of leather seats, carefully crafted drinks, and a menu ranging from steak to seafood plus everything in between. Homemade soups, salads, and pasta are all big hits with regulars, but those in the know come here for the fried chicken. What makes this chicken special? There’s just a hint of sage in the seasoning that really brings out the flavor of the meat, plus their country gravy is out of this world. For the ultimate luxury, get the lobster mac and cheese to go with it.

USDA prime beef, on or off the bone, plus a range of accompaniments delight customers from far and wide. Plus, for comfort food lovers, this steak house does some amazing fried chicken. Crisp and juicy in equal measure, the buttermilk fried chicken with its house gravy is a big hit with regulars. Get the green beans and mash for a true home-style meal- served in opulent surroundings.

Located in the historic Sam’s Town Hotel off Boulder Highway, the Angry Butcher promises “Flavor worth fighting for.” Thankfully, guests don’t actually have to fight for the privilege of dining here- although booking is highly recommended. Simply bring some friends and an appetite. The menu has all the steakhouse classics, plus a plate of what’s arguably the best fried chicken in Las Vegas. What sets this buttermilk breaded beauty apart is the combo of sage-scented gravy and a drizzle of desert honey. Divine.
