From fried chicken to roast chicken, there’s so many varieties of this delicious delight to choose from. We’ve done our best to scour the Penrith LGA for the best chicken options around.

Here’s our top five.

5. Buzzy Bee’s Burger House (Cambridge Park)

When we did our list of favourite chicken shops back in 2019, locals were outraged Buzzy Bee’s wasn’t on the list.

So we tried it, and you were right: there’s some damn good chicken here.

This is a hidden secret of the fried chicken world, and certainly one to have on your list.

4. Flappy’s Fried Chicken (Castlereagh Road, Penrith)

After a slow start, TikTok has helped Flappy’s Fried Chicken fire in Penrith, with people coming from all over to try it out.

And why wouldn’t they? The chicken here is absolutely delicious, with sensational southern fried chicken to cure all your chicken cravings.

They’re located in the Manufactor precinct on Castlereagh Road.

3. Frango (Batt St, Jamisontown)

Frango is Portuguese for chicken and English for bloody delightful. Since arriving in Penrith a couple of years ago, Frango has become exceptionally popular.

We can’t go past the famous Frango Burger here. Especially heading into winter, it’s perfect for that warming lunch-time treat.

The chips here are good too – especially when you throw some famous Chilli sauce into the equation.

2. El Jannah (High St, Penrith)

We know, we know… this could have easily been number one. After all, El Jannah does it almost better than anyone.

If you don’t get a half chicken meal and upsize the garlic sauce, did you really even have El Jannah?

These guys not only know their food, but their service and layout is sensational too. You won’t be hungry for long after walking into their High Street store.

1. Chicken Man (Great Western Highway, Kingswood)

Controversial? We think not. This old school chicken shop may not look like the most inviting eatery around from the outside, but the delights contained within are amazing!

The fried chicken here is first class. Forget anything else you’ve tried, this fried chicken is the President of all fried chicken.

Chips? Sensational, especially with the glorious chicken salt and gravy that is on offer.
