Best Fried Chicken Fast Food Chains in Texas

It’s National Fried Chicken Day and to mark the occasion, a recent report listed the best fried chicken fast food restaurants in every state. So which chicken chain tops the list in the Lone Star State?

The report by marketing agency TOP presents a number of key findings related to the Fried Chicken Hospitality industry at both the national and state level using GPS and consumer spending data linked to the seven largest fried chicken chains in the United States.

Overall, Chick-fil-A tops the list as the most popular fried chicken restaurant in the United States, claiming the top spot in 22 states, according to a company chart. With nearly half the number of state-specific top rankings, KFC came in at a distant No. 2, claiming the top spot in 12 states.


In Texas, none of these fast food chains won the top spot, with Raising Cane’s taking the No. 1 spot in the Lone Star State, followed by Chick-fil-A, Popeyes, Church’s Chicken and KFC in the order.

Interestingly, according to Google Trends search data for the last 12 months, Popeyes has had the most search interest over this period, followed by KFC, Chick-fil-A, Raising Canes and Church’s Chicken, in the ‘order.
