It's no secret that Calgary definitely has a Southern style reputation. A lot of people associate with cowboys, flannels, and barren meadows, especially when stampede season comes around!
When it comes to our food though, Calgary can get pretty diverse! We've got a lot of different tasty eats, from Italian to Asian, and Greek to American. But of course, in true Southern style, we've got some notoriously great fried chicken.
If you're a Calgarian, and you have to visit Zilford's Fried Chicken , you need to seriously rethink your life. Because they serve their delicious food from their giant blue truck, Zilford does not have an exact home, but it's definitely never hard to locate them around YYC!
If you do not mind a bit of spice in your life, we highly recommend Nashville style hot chicken. It's tangy flavor, and crispy batter will have you feeling like you're enjoying it at home, just like comfort food should!
If you prefer your chicken between two pieces of bread, then you'll be obsessed with Zilford's "sammie". Signature chicken, places between brioche and topped with pickles, coleslaw, and ranch; you can not go wrong there!
They've had a great selection of sauces for you to try, including Lava Juice, Honey Butter, and Mild. Or of course, you can get it plain ol 'southern style! Either way, it sounds seriously delicious.
If the chicken alone is not enough to satisfy your appetite , be sure to pick up one of Zilford's delicious sides! They offer bacon mac n' cheese, biscuits, and buttermilk ranch fries. They all sound so delicious, we do not know how you'll manage to pick just one!
