Fried chicken is one of those comfort foods that can be prepared and enjoyed in a number of ways, each creating its own unique flavor. Some fried chicken has spiciness added right into the breading, while others provide dipping sauces for that extra kick. No matter how you prefer your fried chicken, you need to know where to discover the best fried chicken in Fairfield, Ohio.

Jocko’s World Famous Chicken & Seafood

Jocko’s World Famous Chicken & Seafood was started in 1999 by two guys with over 70 years of cooking experience between them. To create their excellent fried chicken, they take only the freshest Grade A chicken and dip it in a honey egg mixture. It’s then covered in breading with just the right amount of seasoning and pressure cooked to perfection. While Jocko’s may only prepare their chicken one way, you’ll love the way they make it. Pair some with their homemade sides, and your entire family will be happy and well-fed.

Jocko’s offers family meals with either bone-in chicken or chicken tenders in eight-, 12-, and 16-piece options or 10- and 14-piece dark meat only options. Each meal comes with sides and buttery baked biscuits. Side options include macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, macaroni salad, hush puppies, corn on the cob, french fries, and baked beans. Coleslaw is also an option, and at Jocko’s, they make their own coleslaw dressing, and it’s amazing! They also offer two-, three-, and four-piece dinners and a three-piece wing option with a side, biscuit, and drink.

If your child’s a fan of chicken tenders, they offer a three- or a four-piece meal with a side, biscuit, and drink. Jocko’s also has kid’s meal options for the little one’s smaller appetites, with a one-piece chicken tender or one drumstick option that comes with a side and a drink. You’ll find them at 4611 Pleasant Avenue, right in Fairfield.
