Jacqueline's Fried Chicken review image

Jacqueline's Fried Chicken

This Dominican spot in Allapattah specializes in pica pollo—a sort of combo meal featuring very savory fried chicken with a side of french fries or tostones. It’s not as seasoned as Haitian-style fried chicken, nor does it have a thick, crunchy crust like Southern fried chicken. In fact, the chicken at Jacqueline’s is crust-free. It hits the spot when you’re looking for an uncomplicated yet filling lunch. And it’s a pretty good deal at under $10 for three pieces of chicken and some tostones, which we recommend getting over the fries. Just remember that it’s cash only and it’s mostly street parking in this neighborhood.
