Great place. Chicken, chips, the best alioli I've ever had with warm bread rolls and butter and a lovely salad. Steve, the owner is a national treasure, efficient and plenty of banter. We have been going there for years and it never alters. Thoroughly recommend this place. Oh clean toilets too.

What ever you do don't ask for the menu. You will get an answer !!?**. Simple, spicy chicken or plain chicken, huge salad, warm bread. If you drink,fine, if you don't, fine. Atmosphere hilarious especially Steve the owner. Host,waiter and floor show all in one. Don't expect to be blown away by the surroundings cos you won't. Just plain and... More

I would happily fly to Tenerife and back in one day just to sit in this restaurant and devour the delicious food. Keep it simple, do what you do best, and don't fix it if it ain't broke. This mantra applies perfectly to this hidden gem of an eatery. Xxxxxx

Been going to this part of Tenerife every January for 10 years and we always go to see Steve at the Chicken Shack. Good fresh food, very cheap and with great entertainment from Steve himself. Well worth a visit

Good but basic food - no menu required. Spicy or plain chicken, chips, salad and hot rolls with alioli. Very reasonably priced. The best part of a visit here is the owner who has a great sense of humour and is very entertaining. Great for larger groups.
