Chicken has been a menu item and a restaurant segment exploding in popularity over the past several years. Whether it be fried chicken or chicken tenders, each concept the editors profiled had something special to offer its customers.

NRN readers were invited to vote on Instagram and LinkedIn, and last week the two finalists were named: Starbird Chicken and Slim Chickens. Though voting for the finals was neck and neck on LinkedIn, with Slim Chickens ultimately winning that poll, Starbird ran away with the Instagram votes to win the Showdown.
