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!
"Not an exaggeration: One of the best chicken sandwiches we have ever had!! The chicken is crunchy, moist, and flavorful. The bun is soft and wonderful ... we are still dreaming about this chicken sandwich!"
"So The Crack Shack is bomb ... it never disappoints. The chicken is cooked to juicy perfection, sauces available for dipping come in a variety unique flavors and the list of creative cocktails keep drinks flowing freely."
"This place does not have nearly enough hype. Not only is the quality and taste of their food beyond any other, they offer unique options that can't be found anywhere else ... It was absolutely chefs kiss. You really can't go wrong here."
"One of my favorite spots to eat. Great area to hang out, talk and eat creative and AMA-ZING chicken sandwiches. Highly recommended ... seriously love, Love, LOVE this spot!!!"
"Jidori fried chicken is my new favorite ... If you haven't tried the delights cooked up here, you are truly missing out and need to come get your fix ASAP. The Chicken is some of the best I've ever had."
