AB FAB!!

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

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.
