Are you looking for some delicious fried chicken?

If the answer is yes, you should check out these places in Greater Cleveland.

Zanzibar Soul Fusion

This local chain offers great soul food, including delectable fried chicken. If you like your fried chicken a little sweet, check out the honey-glazed fried chicken. If you're looking for a little heat, check out the jerk wings, which are deep-fried and marinated in a jerk sauce. You also can't go wrong with the chicken and waffles, which includes two pieces of crispy fried chicken, Belgian waffles, and buttered grits.

Zanzibar Soul Fusion has three locations: downtown (627 Prospect Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44115), Shaker Square (13225 Shaker Square #2314, Cleveland, OH 44120), and GlenVillage (1400 E 105th St, Cleveland, OH 44106).
