Description: Our chickens are cooked over a bed of charcoal, giving it a very genuine barbeque flavour. We also offer a wide range of salads to go with it. Oh did I mentioned that our chips and gravy are the best in town? Also if you want something quick, easy and tasty, why not try some of our burger meals that are great value for money! Eat in or take out. Quick and reliable service with a smile! :)

“Killer hangover? This is your new favourite place!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Great comfort food for those painful weekend mornings (or afternoons!) after a big night on the turps.
Combo of burger & chips (with gravy of course!) should put a bit of colour back into you and make you feel human again.
Eating a tub of potato bake also does wonders.
Oh, good salads too if you're that way inclined.
God bless you Charcoal Chicken.

“Best chickens”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

When I want a good chook this is where I go. Look out for the cold chooks which are a bargain. We go here quite regularly. There is parking and the staff are helpful and friendly.

“Great job! Really impressed.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

I'm a new regular customer! I usually grab a burger pack mid-afternoon and sometimes call ahead to save time. The burgers are consistently great, the chips always fresh and the drinks always cold. Expect a cheerful greeting and farewell from whoever happens to serve you on the day, and you won't be disappointed. great value for money too!!!
