The OG coop; the one that started it all! What began as a passion project to leverage some of the incredible ingredients coming through the kitchen at adjacent sister restaurant Juniper and Ivy, is now a staple in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego. This coop is completely open air, with lawn games and a full bar to soak up craft cocktails, local beers, and the perfect SoCal sunshine. Don't squawk at the line, it moves fast. And while parking isn't up to us, this coop has spots out front dedicated to curbside pickup for busy hens and peeps on the move.
"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."
