MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Loud and proudly serving “all day chicken and eggs,” this shack indeed lives up to its name. The dining area is almost entirely outside, so the planes flying overhead can’t be ignored and neither can the enthusiastic crowds, who seem to compete with that level of noise. Many come here for the fried chicken, but chicken sandwiches on bakery-fresh brioche, potato rolls or English muffins are heartwarmingly delicious. Pickled-brined and deep-fried chicken oysters (tender knobs of meat from the back) are the essence of what every nugget dreams of becoming. Simple but tasty homemade desserts like cookies and soft-serve ice cream complete the scene. Beer and bocce-beneath the watchful gaze of a larger-than-life rooster-is almost as much fun as the food.
