AMMON — Juicy chicken strips, fresh-cut french fries, big sandwiches, creamy custard and specialty sauces.

Super Chix is Ammon has it all and is celebrating its first anniversary in eastern Idaho with new owners and an emphasis on quality customer service.

The growing chicken and custard chain opened its first restaurant in Idaho in March 2021. Known for its fresh food (there aren’t any freezers in the building) and gigantic portions, Super Chix quickly became a favorite for folks looking for a hearty meal.

Justin Hamilton and Daniel Hansen took over the eatery last month. They’re the founders of Cafe Sabor, which has several locations in Utah and Idaho including Ammon, Island Park and Bear Lake. Sierra Durrant, the new General Manager of Super Chix, joined the company from Cafe Sabor.

“We’ve always been super impressed by the quality of the food at Super Chix and we were looking to bring them to other markets but Idaho Falls became open along with northern Utah,” Hamilton tells EastIdahoNews.com.

Super Chix offers a variety of chicken sandwiches. There’s the simple breaded or grilled filet with pickles, Bavaco Ranch (bacon, ranch avocado), Nashville Hot and the stacked up Cheesy BBQ, complete with cheddar cheese, onion rings and BBQ sauce. The Cordon Bleu is a customer favorite and is drizzled with Super Chix’s special honey mustard sauce.

If chicken tenders are more your style, you can order 2, 3, 4, or 5 breaded or grilled. They’re juicy and taste great with an assortment of honey mustard, ranch, buffalo and other dips from the Super Chix sauce bar. The restaurant’s signature sauce is quite popular.

On the side, you’ll find fried pickles or fresh-cut fries, grown from potatoes right here in eastern Idaho. The fries tossed in salt, sweet, rosemary or cajun spices and be prepared to be served a generous portion hot out of the fryer. Many hungry customers enjoy them covered in cheese or get them loaded with queso blanco, bacon and green onions.

“The most important thing about Super Chix is food quality,” Hamilton says. “All of our chicken is fresh, never frozen. It’s all hand-breaded in an open kitchen so you can see everything being made fresh to order. It isn’t fast food – it’s food that you’ll come and know it’s going the made fresh to order. It’s one of those things when you come and dine, you’re going to taste the quality and how it’s prepared.”

Hamilton says Super Chix plans to open other restaurants in eastern Idaho over the next few years.
