About This Coop

The Encinitas Coop is the second location, originally built for North County San Diego peeps who needed to get their fried chicken fix closer to home. This family-friendly coop is the only one with a sand pit for the lil' cluckers, while 28 taps are constantly pouring out San Diego's best craft beers. The proximity to the beach and the open air dining room give this location a true SoCal vibe. With ample parking and curbside pick-up spots right out front, it's also ideal as quick, convenient and high quality takeout for busy hens. There's a semi-private room for small events, too!
