Steve makes it!

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.

We've been going to Tenerfie for several years and since we were taken to the shack by local friends we never miss a visit. Food is great and the atmosphere is fantstic. Steve is a great host and keeps all his diners entertained. We'll be back again soon!

Whilst in Tenerife we had some great meals, most were not cheap, this place was. You turn up, you eat chicken similar to KFC with good portions, you meet no airs and graces steve, you enjoy your stay and then you leave, full, but with money still in your pocket and a good laugh as a result of the owner....

Stays true to the "keep it simple" principle and does a very good job at it. The menu includes a delicious salad mix, great chips and good fried chicken (the spicy one could be a little spicier though), fixed prices. Bonus: great atmosphere, Stephen seems to love his job and that shows. Oh, and his secret talent is to tell... More

We visited the shak in January 2015. We met there Steve, a great guy, very vivid and funny. We went there mostly for the atmosphere Steve was creating. If you happen to stay in Puerto Santiago, you must pay a visit to Steve. The chicken shak is near Vigilia Park hotel.
