This is no longer in McMinnville. Moved to Portland.

Can't wait to visit it there! I have to write this to be 100 characters minimum, so now I am just filling up space!

Great portions, reasonable price, homemade sides, and bread - and best of all it is great tasting. Chicken Coop was recommended to us by a friend, when I was Jones for some good fried chicken in the McMinnville area, since we are new to the area. Try it! I promise you won't be disappointed! The business is run from a... More

These guys have been killing it since they opened. The chicken is cooked to order. The bread is baked daily. The dressings are made in house (or cart). A couple of great guys are running this and I hope them the best. We have ordered in a few times and have been impressed every time. This is serious chicken, not... More

The fried chicken is made to order so you wait a bit. It's crispy, juicy, and pretty well-seasoned. It's a bit bland for my taste and expensive compared to chain restaurants. I may go back. The deep-fried mushrooms were great but expensive.

Do you love home made southern style chicken and rolls just the way grandma made them? If so rush don't walk to the Chicken Coop. This is a food cart located in the "canery district" between 7th & 8th just north of Alpine street. I consider myself a bit of a food snob and have more so-so chicken than good... More

The homemade Blue Cheese Dressing is excellent!! Tonight I tried the chicken Dinner with the all white meat! Totally fabulous! Lots of food for the price! Friendly... More

I read good things about this cart, so I thought I'd try it... I ordered the chick fillets, fries and a roll.... made to order, so I sat a while. The box meal was hot and really good. The fries were awesome, as was the roll. The fillets were small (more like large chicken tenders) but oh, so good. As... More
