“The Chegg Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2007

This is the best restaurant in LBI. They have a wide variety of awesome buffalo wings. The menu has other really good breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes as well. The breakfast menu is diverse, with all types of dishes and sandwiches. I recommend the Bee Sting fingers. They are excellent. The restaurant is open 24 hours from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so its a great place to grab some food after a night out. The Chegg isn't too expensive, and it's really cheap on Wednesday nights, which are "wing nights". It's BYOB. Always a great time and always great food.

“the only place for late night food attacks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2006

This is the place to go when it's late night and you decide you can't live another minute without wings, chicken fingers, a burger, bacon and eggs or just about anything else you can think of! Great atmosphere and wonderful staff. Their food is amazing any time of the day (love the very berry waffles for breakfast), but there is just something about Chegg's cheesy bread at 3:15 am!

“Gotta Have Those Wings!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2006

I'm a BIG TIME foodie and a MAJOR chicken wing lover. As far as I'm concerned, in my 40+ years, I haven't found any wings that even come close to those at Chicken Or The Egg. More varieties and flavors than you could ever hope for, plenty of sauce and always a decent size. My personal favorite is the "Beesting", though I've tried them all and I have had my share of the "Obscene" and the "Ludicrous"...two flavors NOT TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. If you've never experienced any wings outside of those served up at your local sports bar, you owe it to yourself to stop by C.O.T.E., once the early spring rolls around. I hope I can hold out that long.

“Best breakfast on LBI (and wings!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2004

We go to LBI every year, and every year we eat breakfast at Chicken or the Egg at least once. The restaurant is always crowded, but well worth a wait. The tablecloths look like old newspapers, and it's fun to read the old ads. The kids love it! They have a wide variety of breakfast foods, including very tasty egg sandwiches (they even have a "chicken or the eggwich", with chicken AND eggs!" Their homefries can't be beat! The Chicken or the Egg is open 24 hours a day, and it's great for midnight snacks. Their wings are the best I have ever eaten! There are 14 different types of hot sauces, from sweet to "Ludicrous!" They also serve dinner, and have early bird specials. Their chicken is wonderful, but you can get almost anything: steaks, seafood, pasta, salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Prices are very reasonable, and the service is generally friendly and quick. Stop by next time you're in LBI!!!!!!!!
