The Bird

A buddy that used to live in SF raved to me about how good the fried chicken sandwich was at The Bird. We decided to check them out for a quick bite.

We dropped in on a Monday afternoon (around 12:15pm) and just missed the rush. Order and pay at the counter then wait for your name to be called. There’s a daily happy hour (4:00pm to 7:00pm).

The menu is short and sweet; fried chicken, curly fries and biscuits.

You have the option of getting normal or spicy.

They also have bottles of homemade sriracha on the tables.

The batter was crunchy but a touch or two overdone in the fryer. Still doesn’t beat the best one I’ve had at The People’s Pig (in Portland).

I’m not sure I’d make a visit solely to The Bird but maybe if you happen to be in the area.
