Chicken tenders aren’t just for kids. As an adult, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a plump and juicy piece of boneless chicken that’s fried to perfection.
These are the restaurants we recommend for dunking and devouring delicious chicken tenders in metro Detroit. Many of the places on this list make killer chicken wings as well!

Sometimes a zesty sauce can take already good tenders to the next level. At Uncle Joe’s Chicken Fingers, their homemade sauce adds a welcome zip to their fresh chicken.

Bobcat Bonnie’s combines the legendary childhood cereal with fresh cuts of chicken to create their Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers. They serve honey mustard and honey sriracha sauces with these cluckin’ good strips of chicken.
Wing Fingers (Dearborn)
Flap on over to Wing Fingers in Dearborn for seriously succulent chicken fingers. We appreciate the generous size of their made-to-order munchies.
Kuzzo’s Chicken & Waffles (Detroit)
Instead of having your tenders with a side of sauce, why not have them with waffles and syrup? Kuzzo’s Chicken & Waffles in Detroit will have you clucking with delight when you order the Tender Love combo featuring three juicy tenders and a waffle.

The plump, juicy tenders at Wing Snob will have you shaking your tail feather. Don’t be intimidated by “snob” in the name of their business; their service is as friendly as can be.

Rafic’s Falafel (Dearborn)
It is no secret what Rafic’s Falafel is famous for, but don’t sleep on their hand-breaded chicken tenders. Rafic’s calls them their pride and joy right after their falafel.
Chicken Shack (Multiple Locations)
A metro Detroit institution since 1956, Chicken Shack always hits the spot when we crave crispy, flavorful chicken and buttery broasted potatoes.
Mike & E’s (Clinton Township)
Mike & E’s serves delicious chicken tenders in Clinton Township. Get yours crispy or grilled, then dunk ’em in homemade sauces like creamy garlic, sweet sriracha, or chipotle barbecue.
Jim Brady’s Detroit (Royal Oak)
As an appetizer or an entrée, Grandma’s Chicken Poppers at Jim Brady’s Detroit are sure to please. The best part about these babies is the choice of dipping sauce. Our personal favorites are the Rock & Rye BBQ and McClure’s Bloody Mary Ranch.
