I read through some of the reviews and noted that a couple people had claimed that The Shak's chicken was "greasy". I honestly cannot figure out why anyone would think so. The chicken at The Shak is the least breaded "Southern Fried" chicken I have encountered, yet the delightfully spiced skin does an excellent job of sealing in all the flavor the chicken has to offer. The only way this chicken could be considered greasy is if the previous reviewers don't know the difference between grease and juice. The chicken was oozing juice, not grease. Chester fried (or most supermarket chicken) is way over breaded and holds in a lot of grease resulting in skin that slides off when you bite in and yellow grease marks on your napkin. None of that will be found at The Shak. I was born and raised in Georgia and spent my summers with grandparents and extended family in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. The Shak is the real deal.
Pulled pork and Brisket sandwiches are also great!
