As we know... Popeyes Chicken Sandwich blew up the internet (oaky that is an exaggeration), caused riots and topped headlines for days. I wasn't able to try the sandwich, but everyone who did say it was amazing. Well... the Food Network searched the country for the best chicken sandwiches and a Minnesota Brewpub found their sandwich on the list.

Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub is located in Minneapolis. Most of the items on their menu are smoked except their chicken sandwich... it's one of the only fried items other than their chips and fires.

The menu says that the sandwich is a crunchy deep-fried chicken sandwich. It is served with dill pickles, lettuce, tomato, and a honey-mustard. It all comes on an egg bun with chips. Just looking at that picture is making my mouth water.

If you are looking to go test the sandwich for yourself, you can find Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub at 2716 E 38th St. South Minneapolis. If chicken sandwiches aren't your thing, there are plenty of other options on the menu. They have anything from adult Mac and Cheese to Chilli Cheese fries. It sounds like one of those places where you want to order one of everything. It's so great to see a Minnesota restaurant make the list.
