2019 was arguably the year of the fried chicken sandwich, owing to the frenzied demand for the new sammie launched by Popeye's.

But there's a chicken sandwich you can find in Minneapolis that gives the chicken chain a run for its money, according to Food Network.

The TV station has identified its 30 Best Fried Chicken Sandwiches in the U.S., and Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub is included.

The brewery at 2716 E. 38th St. in south Minneapolis gets a mention for its Northern Fried Chicken Sandwich, one of the few food items at the pub that isn't made in its smoker.

"This chicken sandwich is familiar, sort of like something your grandmother would have made for a picnic — if she were a really great chef," Food Network writes.

"Seasoned panko batter creates a dense, crunchy crust on the deep-fried breast, which gets balanced out with dill pickles, lettuce, tomato and a sweet and savory roasted-garlic mayo on a toasted egg bun."

It's the only Minnesota selection on the list and one of only a few from the Midwest, with most of the sandwiches coming from cities like New Orleans, Nashville, Los Angeles and New York.

And yes, Popeye's Chicken's new sandwich also made the list.
