If it’s Southern chicken, then it’d better be fried. At least, that’s what they believe at The Cookshak Fried Chicken. Their small menu lets them focus on preparing fried chicken and its fixings right, crafting each meal to feel like you’re sitting down to a big chicken dinner at Grandma’s country farmhouse. The restaurant serves food in family-size servings, and you can order half or whole birds and pair them with sides of fries, mac and cheese or coleslaw, available by the pint or by the quart. Be sure to check out their daily lunch specials, too, for deals on single-serving meals. Cookshak's Duck location is takeout only, and their Nags Head location offers takeout or dine-in options. They also deliver for free.
