You have to try the Champagne chicken an absolute joy. Staff are always friendly, the only problem have ever encountered is they can sell out of chickens early

We have been going to this take away since opening but not as good as with original owners, chickens seem a lot smaller for the expensive price. Service was efficient although a little rude from what appeared to be the owner.

Absolutely the best chicken you could ever ask to buy and eat. Cooked to perfection with Champagne Chickens (stuffed with Diced Potato in a Champagne Sauce) or Red Wine Chicken (stuffed with Rice etc in a red wine sauce)! Great with the beautiful fresh hot chips and gravy of to take home and make your own Veges or Salad! Simply... More

Simply the best roast chickens on the Gold Coast. The champagne one is just unbelievable. The staff are friendly and helpful and my family and I just love going there. You should try their gravy.

Really like the food and have been coming for years but never again. The owner is an arrogant aggressive unlikeable women who over charges. Have always enjoyed their crispy chicken wings until today when I find in my take away that they have substituted WingDings like you get at a snack food bar in their place and doubled the price....

I generally buy Drunken Chicken every Saturday for lunch. I have also had it on the odd occasion for dinner. The chicken is always moist and delicious - champagne! The French fries and gravy finish it off nicely with a bottle of Solo.

Chickens are delicious and their two main ones are gluten free! Staff are always friendly and wait time is minimal whenever I have been in.

The normal bbq chickens are average, however, the 'drunken' chickens although on the expensive side are delicious, and larger than the normal bbq chickens. Choose from a chicken marinated in red wine, stuffed with mushroom & bacon rice, or a champagne marinated chicken, stuffed with rosemary roasted potatoes, serve with their steamed veges and the best chips around. Makes for... More
