According to Constantine Spyrou, Jollibee is the fast food joint that can take over the United States because of its Chickenjoy!

“Jollibee is the Filipino fast food chain that’s gonna take over the United States because of their BOMB fried chicken,” he wrote. “They keep it simple like Church’s, and you can get it in tender form or in varied piece buckets.”

“What makes it stand out beyond the rest, however, is a gravy packed with flavors of onion and celery that is absolutely ethereal. You almost want a whole bucket of the gravy just to dip into the chicken, it’s that good. The unique savory notes of that gravy compliment fried chicken in a way that no other fast food chain on this list can replicate, and it’s why Jollibee deserves such a high spot on this list.”

The Pinoy fried chicken placed a strong third only to Chick-fil-A and Popeye’s, according to the Foodbeast’s list.

Chickenjoy has been a Filipino favorite for many years. In fact, it is the reason why Jollibee is the number 1 fast food restaurant in the Philippines since it overtook McDonald’s with the introduction of Chickenjoy in the mid-1980s.

And it’s not only in the Philippines where Jollibee’s fried chicken earned rave reviews. After being frowned at by locals initially, Chickenjoy has been the top-selling fried chicken in Singapore since it was introduced several years ago.
