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.

This came recommended from a local friend and boy was he on target. Got there about 11 pm Saturday night and the wait was still about 45 minutes long. We were determined and hungry so we stayed.

Best decision we ever made.

To say they were the best wings I've ever eaten would be an understatement. We got the bee sting and they were perfect. Little bit sweet, little bit twang. Huge wings, all white meat. Just perfect all around. Blue cheese was very delicious too and seemed homemade. Do yourself a favor and get here and order some food!

Yes the wait can be long, but what are you going to do, go to an empty place instead? Put your name in and then stroll around some of the local shops, or sit on the benches outside and people watch. There's a reason for it, great casual food for a great price in a cute place.

Breakfast is always available and the hot sauces are amazing (you can buy a bottle and bring it home with you). Watch out for what level you go for, make sure to match your palate. There are all kinds of choices for your meal depending on your mood for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We have enjoyed everything we have ever ordered. Enjoy, its the island life!

Fun concept with delicious casual food. We had lunch and I am sure breakfast and dinner are equally as good.

Love the food. Great prices for a lot of food. However be prepared to wait a very long time to get in. The place is tiny and cramped and loud. So if you're not into that type for dinner, then maybe find somewhere else. But both times we have gone the food is great and so is service.

You can also do take out so maybe call ahead and order then eat on the beach or at home!

The Chegg is the kind of place where you can literally get anything you want and change anything on the menu and they don't get annoyed or pissed. The food is always good and the servers are friendly even with drunks at 3 am, especially Maria. The food comes out fast too and takeout is also super quick. Love coming here!!!
