There is a new fried chicken restaurant located along Minnehaha Avenue in South Minneapolis.
Official Fried Chicken opened at 4010 East 46th Street on Thursday, adding to growing competition from fried chicken specialists in Minneapolis’ South Side, with award-winning Revival a few miles west.
The Official Fried Chicken specializes in chicken and fries, and it’s only available for delivery or takeout.
Under the acronym OFC, the restaurant offers three flavors of fried chicken, all marinated and pressure-fried until crispy.
There’s the “Original” flavor, which is described as a tasty blend of herbs. The “Mighty Buffalo” flavor is hot and spicy. And the “Master BBQ” is “sweet and savory with a touch of smoke”.
