About This Coop

The Costa Mesa Coop is The Crack Shack’s third location, originally built for Orange County peeps who needed their fried chicken fix a little further up the coast. Once a bank on the corner of 17th & Orange, this high-ceiling, open-air, family-friendly coop boasts 28 taps, constantly pouring out SoCal’s best craft beers. It’s the only coop with a second level where guests can find extra seating, or host a flock for a private event. With its own parking lot and curbside pick-up spots right out back, it's also ideal as quick, convenient and high quality takeout for busy hens.
