There are two restaurants that come to mind when you think of the best fried chicken in Sioux Falls.  The Keg and Bob's Chicken. They're legendary! The chicken at both restaurants is always fresh and hot. When I saw a story on the internet called "The Best Fried Chicken in all 50 States," I had to see if one of my favorite restaurants in Sioux Falls made the list. It did. But, not the one I thought.

The website Mental Floss determined where to find the best fried chicken in every state. They don't say how they come to the conclusion.

So, where can you find the best fried chicken in South Dakota?  Here's what Mental Floss says:

Sioux Falls, South Dakota

If you want fancy, organic, or high-falutin’ food, go somewhere else. Pizza Ranch’s 180 locations are staples in 13 U.S. states for their big buffets, their standardized pizza, and their Crispy Ranch Chicken.

Now, I'm not going to diss Pizza Ranch. I love Pizza Ranch's chicken. I actually like their chicken more than their pizza.  I think it should be called the Chicken Ranch. I also think you can't go wrong with the chicken at the Keg and Bob's Carryout. The chicken is always super hot and juicy and they are both institutions in the city.
