Chesters Chicken may out do the Colonel.
Chesters Fried Chicken
17 North Main Street
Monticello UT 84535
Hours: Monday - Saturday from 6am to 3 pm
Inside the Shell station, on the corner of Main and Center Streets, there is a small area reserved for Chesters. If you have never tried Chesters and are a fan of fried chicken, then you should, but beware, as their fried chicken gives the Colonel (KFC) a run for his money.
The chicken is crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside and flavorful; though it’s fried, there is very little grease. There is the usual assortment of parts: breast, wing, leg or thigh and they also have their own version of a hot wing and chicken tenders. The potato wedges are a bit pricey at 50 cents a wedge, but they are good; and there is an assortment of sauces to use on the chicken and wedges.
Recently they have started to serve breakfast items, and the breakfast sandwiches are quite good; made fresh, not the typical microwave fare. They will also be serving fresh made breakfast plates starting this June.
