Good for: Families with children
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Dinner, Lunch, Takeout
Description: When we boast that there is something for everyone, it's not without merit. There are classic items and ones that are completely original and unique. And then there are the wings... A lot of places talk a good buffalo wing, but the "Chegg" as it is now commonly known, truly delivers. The wings are big, juicy and available in 17 sauces, both Original Breaded, or Naked. The Chicken or the Egg has become know locally and Nationally for these big beauties. And best of all, the whole menu (breakfast too) is available 24 hours a day (in season). But for us, it's not just about the food. It's about family. It's about camaraderie. It' s about good times. So come io in and join the family. Join the fun. You'll be happy you did. Oh, and sorry about the lines. People dig us. But it' s worth the wait.

Great place for breakfast or lunch on the main drag. Go for the wings. You won't be disappointed! Sandwiches and breakfast also great. Sometimes a wait, but generally moves pretty quickly

I ate here quite a few times over the past year and every time it was good. The menu has a lot specialty dishes that you could never imagine and they are all awesome. Even in the busy season they tend to get you in and out quickly. I will always stop here for a bite to eat while on LBI.

First of all let me say we love wings.....the wings are so delicious! If you go with people who do not like wings they have a huge menu to choose from. Drawback- very expensive ...

There is nothing bad on this menu. Favorites are Goshdarnwich and Buffalo Chicken Omelet and Killer Bee Sting Naked Wings to name the top 3 but just work your way thru the menu....

I don't know why this place is always crowded. Their service sucks and the food is sub-par. Breakfast is greasy, burgers are terrible (not sure what they put in the meat, but its definitely fillers), and way over priced. I will only go back because my wife lover the chowder.

Hi, and thank you for taking the time to review The Chicken or the Egg. We know your time is valuable. I feel horribly that you had a bad experience, so I wanted to take a moment to apologize. I assure you that your comments are taken very seriously. We never add fillers to our burgers, and our servers are trained to be friendly, personal, and attentive. The fact that we fell short of your expectations will most certainly result in a long hard look at our overall policies.

Thank you again for taking the time to review us Trip Advisor.
