A hidden gem in downtown Morgantown. The fried chicken is amazing. The sandwiches could be your meal for two days. The dirty rice was delicious!

This is a hole in the wall place on High St. where the sandwiches are both delicious and HUGE. Served in cardboard trays so they are easily packed up to go (you just can't eat the whole thing and if you do well much gym work will be needed to work it off.) Great staff, many choices and just plain good food. No ambiance, just a sandwich shop but well worth the try when in Morgantown.

the sandwichs here were great I had aturkey sandwich and my friends a philly cheesesteak. they were all excellent. I also tried the fried chicken which was perfect. I have eaten a lot of fried chicken in my time and this was among the best . atmosphere was ok and it very small but really enjoyed. loved the bread.

Ive been to Dirty Bird about a half dozen times and there's good and bad to the place. From a food standpoint, everything is very good. The Dirty Bird is good while the Monty Ray is one of the hugest sandwiches ive been served in town. The star of course is the Fried Chicken though which i cant rave enough about.

Now to the bad. Half of the time ive been in, the service has been horrible. The workers Ive dealt with have had a bad attitude and ive not often encountered such rudeness in this town. It makes a person want to not come back honestly. The only place ive dealt with ruder employees is Jersey's. The second complaint is one the side of sizes. The slaw is very good but as a side with your chicken its served in a cup about the size of a Dixie Cup. Not cool. I think thats something that definitely needs to be changed. Lastly, the hours are horrible. Extended hours would be a welcome change.

Overall, GREAT food, decent prices, horribly rude young staff (havent dealt with the older owners) and so-so hours. Try it out but venture in at your own risk.

First of all the sandwich was huge and flavorful! We ordered the large fries and for less than $5 got a really large portion and they were done very well! I would eat there more, but it's a small place so not much area to eat and they don't deliver. Also, they do run out of chicken/food and close per their phone message.
