Mary Brown's Fried Chicken [moved from Ontario board]

  • 9

On the advice of some chowhounds, I tried this KFC. It was moment of weakness. I am not proud.

Anyhow, this place is alright. Better than KFC to be sure. And those "taters" are delish! (Lightly battered fluffy potato wedges). Yes, I know I'm going to hell.

If you're having a fried chicken hankerin', and you want something a good bit better than KFC, try this spot on Dufferin near Lawrence.

  1. I confess--I liked it too, Fwagra. But then again, I like Popeye's on occasion.

      KFC, Chick 'N Joy, Popeye's, Mary Brown's, Dixie Lee, home made.

      The climbing scale of fried chicken delight.

            Thanks. I'm going (to the one in Brampton. I'm often up there).

      1. If youre in the Oshawa area, try the Mary Browns near the OC (Oshawa Centre). I think they are the best of the best Mary Browns. Chicken is crispy and nicely flavoured, and best taters EVER.

          I agree, this location is the best Ive tried

        2. I haven't had Mary Brown's in a long time...I used to have it quite a bit as a kid though...I remember their batter/skin being okay but their chicken being very moist and juicy, much better then the dry and flavourless meat at KFC.

          I'm a fan of Popeye's though...always crave it when I past by Etobicoke at the mall on Finch and whatever. Juicy, flavourful, and greasy, the ultimate in junk food, lol
