We believe chicken lovers deserve a higher-quality experience than they get from the guys across the road. PURE AND SIMPLE. Like skinless chicken that come from-get this-an actual farm. House crafted sides and sauces made from premium ingredients. And a heckuva lot of tasty options for the whole family. It’s this HONEST-TO-GOODNESS commitment to thrilling each customer that has folks flocking. And eating naked. Founded in 1981 in the community of Bethpage, New York, (as Pudgie's Famous Chicken), George Sanders developed his secret chicken recipe and skinning process.
