Great food albeit not the healthy option and brilliant staff and owner is awesome.

Atmosphere was friendly, relaxing and no hassle, food is very tasty and enjoyed our visit, will go back next time we are in Tenerife.

What a character Steve the owner is. Myself and my fiancee left with a full belly, and sore jaws from laughing! We had some bother finding this place but so glad we persevered. From the moment we arrived Steve was making us giggle. It was relentless at the beginning if im being honest, talking lots to us whilst telling all... More

This is always our first port of call when we arrive in Tenerife, when we are hungry after a long days travelling nothing can beat the chicken shack! Chicken, salad, chips and aioli what could be better?!

Always take visitors to the Chicken Shack. Can't beat it for taste and value. Steve makes the night . Bread and garlic dip, salad ( so good the kids ate it). Spicy or plain chicken, really good chips and an excellent house wine.

Great, simple food- beautifully fresh (great dressing on salad) choice of spicy or plain (we had both). Gorgeous warm bread rolls and a really tasty garlic sauce. Steve the owner had us in stitches with his banter 🐔🐣🐥🐤🐦

We have been going to Los Gigantes for 16 years but had never been to The Chicken Shack before. What a waste of 16 years. Went there with friends who live locally. What a night. As others have said the menu is simple but the quality is good. The staff are great and Steve just makes the place. No need... More

We go to Tenerife, Los Gigantes at least 3 to 4 times a year, and no holiday would be complete without a trip to The Chicken Shack. Although it's sometimes nice to go somewhere "posh", with nice menus, table cloths and waiters in full black and white regalia, we really look forward to going to see Steve at the Chicken... More
