Jollibee has been listed as one of the best fast food places to visit in the United States if you’re craving for fried chicken.
Foodbeast’s Constantine Spyrou cited the Filipino fast food restaurant in his list, which was published last week.
Saying that Jollibee keeps its recipe simple, Spyrou explained: “What makes it stand out beyond the rest, however, is a gravy packed with flavors of onion and celery that is absolutely ethereal.”
He added that no other restaurant will be able to replicate the gravy’s “unique savory notes,” before ranking Jollibee in third.
The only other fast food joints to finish above Jollibee were Chick-fil-A and Popeye’s. KFC was in 10th.
Foodbeast is a food website with more than 4 million followers on Facebook. Spyrou is a regular contributor for Foodbeast who has written an article about the US’s major food trends this year.
Jollibee opened its first US store in Daly City, California in 1988. It has since grown into a globally recognized brand, which boasts 1,000 branches.
In 2013, its Chicken Joy was voted as the best fried chicken in Singapore.
