Among the other brands Jollibee competed with were Bonchon, Popeyes, KFC, Shake Shack, Chick-fil-A, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Fuku O.G., White Castle, Burger King, Church’s Chicken, Panda Express, Wingstop, and Del Taco.

“The subtly seasoned skin is as tectonically crunchy as advertised, if loosely attached in such a way as to be able to slide off an entire hunk with one bite,” said Lesley Suter, Eater’s deputy editor.

“The real surprise here was the chicken itself: satisfyingly light, flavorful in a ‘tastes like chicken’ sort of way, and supremely moist,” Suter added Jollibee’s signature gravy is “more than just an optional dunk.”

“It completes the dish, gelatinous in a way I can only describe as naughty, while proudly showing its Filipino colors with a hefty dose of sugar,” Suter added.

Jollibee has more than 80 locations across North America.
