Shaq teamed up with JRS Hospitality executives Matthew Silverman and Matthew Piekarski of Hexx fame to create the chicken restaurant and its menu.

The menu features chicken sandwiches, sliders, and chicken strips (all crispy or grilled).  The tasty sides include Lucille’s cheesy macaroni topped with Cheez-It crackers, dirty fries, ice cream sandwiches, milkshakes,  and root beer from Big Dog’s.Brewing Co. 

Of course, while in Vegas, I had to check it out because you know…..supporting black-owned restaurants is what I do…..

Overall, Big Chicken delivered “Big Flavor, Big Food, and Big Fun”, as promised. I actually thought the chicken sandwich was better than Chick-fil-A, (don’t shoot the messenger),  the fries were to die for (dipped in Shaq sauce), and the sides were decently executed. The icing on the cake was the wonderful selection of milkshakes, and ice cream sandwich.  So the next time you’re in Vegas show some love to Big Chicken and tell them The Buppie Foodie sent ya!!
