OMG - that chicken is a must on my calendar every week. I get a craving for this chicken and I am dying right now because they shut down for the summer. I cannot wait till they open back up. The best tasting fresh chicken I've ever eaten.

Dirty Bird is the best. The portions are huge . And the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is the best I've ever had. I won't order it at any other place now because I know it will just disappoint.

I have been to The Dirty Bird many times over the past few years and the food is always cooked perfectly and I always receive excellent service by staff who seem to care even when they are busy and the wait is long.

Met for a quick "business" lunch when I walked in I must admit I didn't expect much and boy was I wrong!! The sandwich was not only HUGE but Great tasting. I ended up taking the other half home for my wife to enjoy for her lunch. The big trick is finding a place to park.

We were excited to try this place based on its reviews. We walked in just after noon and there literally wasn't a place to sit. Every table was full. As soon as we walked in, everyone in the restaurant stared at us, including two staff members who continued to stand behind the counter and not ask if we needed anything.... More

The atmosphere is wonderful though could use a bigger space but the food is amazing. Even my children, who are the pickiest, LOVE the chicken. I have ordered several sandwiches including the Sinatra, Vera Cruz and Rueben and have not had a bad experience. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

Had my first meal at the Dirty Bird. It won't be my last. The Vera Cruz sandwich was really good and really big. After dining the friendly women taking orders suggested splitting a sandwich and getting side in the future. That's some advice I plan to follow next time at the Dirty Bird. The place is super casual and closed... More

The food was excellent and the staff was exceptionally friendly. Granted, we were there outside the lunch rush so they may have been more friendly than normal, but they actually talked to us while waiting on us and truly seemed like they were happy to be there. The food was also very good. Much better than a normal sandwich shop.

Thank Robert D
