Everytime I visit lbi, this is a must stop. They have awesome food and are always open. I always enjoy the breakfast and the wings. If you like anything mild to really hot, they have it.

We were at the Hop Sauce festival on Saturday night where The Chegg had a booth. Tried the chicken wings there and they were fantastic! They were meaty, juicy and very tasty (regular spice). The next morning, off to breakfast! Make your own omelet, pancakes with blueberries that pop juice in your mouth and I have to say, the best... More

great breakfast. with super friendly staff and very clean. pre-Memorial Day feel was relaxed and attentive. don't know what it's like mid-season. would go back for the "chicken" part of the name. had only the "eggs".(breakfast) blueberry/walnut pancakes were delicious, as was the Mexicali omelette. decor is eclectic with novelty original artwork and chickens and eggs all over. college student...

The first time I tried their wings was a take-out order of "MedYum sauce jumbo wings" back in 2013. They were delicious. And every Summer they are one of the reasons I go back to LBI. The wings are juicy, crunchy and meaty. You have many many options and levels of hot sauce to try. All of them delicious. They... More

If you love chicken wings, you've got to make the trip to Long Beach Island and find this restaurant! The wings are perfect: big, meaty, hot, crispy, juicy...and so many choices of sauces. They also have terrific breakfasts. My husband loves the Chesapeake Benedict (eggs benedict with crab cakes on the English muffin. The cinnamon roll French toast is great... More

Breakfast lunch or dinner you can't go wrong. Great food, prices, and friendly service. Byob! They are on the no wait app which is a plus on a Wednesday during the summer when it's wing night and very crowded.

I decided to try this place out to see why people loved it so much. The restaurant atmosphere was nice and I was seated right away, but I was not a fan of the food whatsoever. We ordered Boneless Wings, a Chicken Caesar Wrap, and the Famous Reuben. My order arrived promptly, but I was confused as to why my... More

We were on a mini-vaca to the LBI and stopped here for dinner one night. It was busy but we were seated within 10 minutes. I know their claim to fame is the breakfast dishes and their wings, but no one in my family was in the mood for those. My 2 year old and 16 year old both opted... More

We own a home on LBI and Chicken or The Egg is a favorite for us as it is for many locals ( as well as tourists). It is now an "attraction" on LBI as it is most famous for its large and varied selection of wings. It's menu is creative and diverse. But the best thing is the comfort... More
