5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

The Double Front has the best fried chicken in the western USA. I have never left without being totally satisfied.

“Dear Corn Nuggets..I love you!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Although I know that Missoula is a hopping little town, I was wary after moving here that I wouldn't find a restaurant I really enjoyed. WELL.. I found it in Double Front.

I heard the tale of the best chicken in town, but I had to try for myself. Not only was I NOT disappointed, it's one of the best places I have yet to eat at since my arrival last fall. Yes.. the chicken is fantastic, but I could absolutely founder myself by eating the corn nuggets all night. Crispy and sweet..it satisfies all the senses.

If you make it to town..visit Double Front and strap on the feedbag!

“Best fried chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

My husband loves fried chicken and loved this. I normally don't eat fried chicken but tried this and liked it very much. Only problem is is that we live 2500 away.

“Best Chicken Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

What else needs to be said. Been eating chicken from the DF since the 50's and it's still the best. If you're a fried chicken lover you're missing out if you haven't tried the DF.

“A true treat.. Best chicken in Missoula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

That's right I said it, Double Front is the best. We always order when we get there and go downstairs for a drink. It is 20 or 30 minute wait. But remember good things come to those who wait. It's right off the freeway even if you're driving through town but make sure you get extra napkins. Love this place, it's a landmark...
