If you like chicken, you would love The Crack Shack. Even if you don't like chicken, you would still love The Crack Shack. Why? Because their chicken is not your average chicken. In fact, I bet you've never had chicken this fresh and tasty in your entire life, and if you keep reading, I will tell you exactly why.
I was looking for a new family friendly restaurant last week, when I came across The Crack Shack, and as I went through their menu, and the photos of their sandwiches on Instagram, I said to myself, I've got to get myself some of this chicken "now"! And If you go to their Instagram page, you'll know exactly what I am talking about.
The pictures gave me a strong craving for their food. And last week I had the pleasure of trying their food, and I have to confess, their food in reality is even better than what you see in the pictures! The Chef probably has golden fingers to make a chicken taste so delicious. I understand that their chicken is not your average chicken, but it is still just a chicken. But maybe the chickens have gone to heaven, came back to earth, and landed in their kitchen, and that is why they are so heavenly!
But in reality, the combination of their free range chickens, highest quality ingredients, their secret marinades, and their intense love of all things chicken is why The Crack Shack's food is out of this world!
I tried the G-Bird Sandwich with grilled chicken breast among other things, and If you know me, you would know that I have a very delicate pallet, and worse then me is my 7 year old son. But as soon as the food hit the table, I, my son, and my husband looked at each other, and as soon as we had our first bites, we all knew we've found a new favorite that we can come back again and gain as a family for more deliciousness.
Sandwiches and salads range from $8 to $13, family-size portions of fried chicken are $15 for 5 pieces, or $29 for 10 pieces. Kid’s Meal choices are nuggets, grilled chix, or grilled cheese with choice of carrots or petite fries, plus juice box and cookie. My son tried the nuggets, and they were exceptionally fresh and soft.
As for the space, expect lots of sunlight, a ton of wood, a high ceiling with a beautiful decor, and an expansive & interactive outdoor patio. You don't need a reservation at The Crack Shack; just walk in and they will make sure you get seated promptly.
