We love it here. The food was incredible. We had the buffalo shrimp as well as some sandwiches for dinner. The food is worth the wait! Try the "No Wait" app to get yourself on the wait list without actually going there - only works for 6 or less people in your party. Be sure to mention the number of... More

I have been going down to LBI for more than 30 years and had never ventured into The Chicken or The Egg even though everyone I knew had. I suppose I was always turned off by the crowds waiting to get in....well they are waiting to get in for a very good reason: the wings are incredible! My son convinced... More

Busy around the clock, the extensive menu can satisfy almost anyones hunger. They specialize in wings, and episode of Man vs. Food was shot here. Portions ane large and prices are reasonable. Well worth a visit.

Went there for breakfast and lunch - it was delicious! Breakfast was tasty as well as lunch. The portions are huge and nothing is overpriced. Definitely going back.

Slightly less expensive than Uncle Wills. Huge omelets, nice pancakes. Really worth a visit so you can decide which breakfast place you prefer.

A lot of people complain about the crowds, but there is a reason for that! If you want to skip waiting, go for an early breakfast or grab take-out. This visit we had breakfast which is always delicious - try the eggel or the california burrito. If you like hot sauce, make sure you try one of the many options!

The restaurant was so crowded that we tried 3 different week days to get a table and it was impossible. We ended up not even ever getting to there.

First time at CHEGG and it was great! Waitress was perfect, food came out hot and fast. My son had the Italiano sandwich and loved it. Wings were crispy and meaty. Will definitely eat there again maybe breakfast?!

You're going to have a good time here with great food, that's my review. They have root beer on tap so that made me happier than a sunny day. My friend got the happy waitress (sandwhich) and when she wasn't looking I sniggled a few of her fries which were hot and crispy. Looking around the bustling dining area everyone... More

A great spot for breakfast. My husband and I are vegetarian and we have two small children, one of whom is a picky eater. There are always choices for us to eat. . A nice friendly environment that accommodates children well.
