They have a GREAT menu, filled with lots of yummy, spicy treats! Went on this day for lunch with someone who is vegan and he was also impressed with the menu and flavors.
Their Macho Peas are REALLY good! Chicken breast is flavorful and prepared well, but too pricey for just a chicken breast. Look forward to going back and trying the half chicken, which is only a dollar more.
Their flame-grilled corn on the cob was tasty, but nothing special.

They have an incredible selection of sauces... we tried each one and they were done very nicely, not too spicey, even for the extra-hot.

Definitely worth a try!

First visit was pretty good. Will certainly return and try more of the menu. Had a chicken Pita sandwich and a grilled chicken Breast (marinated) moist & flavorful with a Couple of sides.
Tried two different side sauces for the chicken, pretty good.
Looked like some good dessert selections "next time"
A different concept , order at the counter, food delivered to you and silverware drinks you help yourself.
Good for a casual meal, something different is always a nice change from the usual chicken joint.
Several

We happened to find this place during its grand opening. We all have chicken dishes that were good but really dry. The mix of foods is too dry for my taste. It was free and I don't see myself paying for a meal from here.

The design of the restaurant is cute, with just enough of a different vibe to feel a bit more than the simple casual place it is. You are seated, but then go up to the counter to order (and your food is delieved to your table after the fact). The main star of their cuisine is their chicken, which you decide on one of many levels of flavor and heat to have this chicken.

I had a half of a chicken, and... it was kinda small.. The wing meat was not even edible as the whole thing was just a touch overdone. This is not (or it didnt taste) like the chicken had been marinated in anything. This is just chicken.. Firegrilled... with sauce on top.

The sauces are decent, but nothing I would crave and NEED to come back for. I found the bigger chucks of chicken (or those without the sacue) to be very underseasoned and bland.

The sides were nice, the staff went out of their way to make a good impression. If others wanted to go here.. I would go back.. but it would not be my idea to do it.

I would have really liked to have loved this.. but the dryish chicken.. just didnt do it for me.
