Love this fried chicken. Old family recipe. Very crispy and tasty. Friendly staff. Owners on site. Always hire high school students to give them a start in the work force.

This I-37 hangout is a mighty fine place. If you're looking for something you won't find in other cities, then this Corpus Christi legend is the place. I came in here during my recent trip to the Gulf Coast and had really good, flavorful fried chicken. Wonderful mashed potatoes and fried okra, too. Your food comes to you fresh, and... More

PLace was clean, chicken was good, not great. Staff was very friendly however. Not the best fried chicken I've had but definitely not the worst either.

I typically steer clear of fried foods, but I was on the north side of Corpus for business and the place was close to my hotel. I'm so glad I went. The chicken was delicious, hot and juicy - some of the best I've ever had. It's worth a stop if you're on your way into or out of CC.

The food is fresh and tasty. Workers are friendly. It's the cleanest place I've ever eaten, bar none. I've only been there twice but it is now on my go to list. It just tastes better, at the chicken shack.

My husband and I come here every time we are in Corpus. It is always clean and the staff is friendly. The owners, Mike and Kerry make you feel so welcome. Corpus is lucky to have it. I always get the gizzards and my husband loves the chicken tenders.

I grew up on Chicken Shack chicken. It's still good. Service is good and prices are fair. Love their onion rings! I always get the "Everyday Special"!

Don't come here if you are on a diet; you come here to get down on some fried chicken! The fried chicken and chicken strips are both good and all of the sides I've tastes are great. They also have a nice selection of desserts. Come in and have some delicious fried chicken. Its an Annaville staple. A little pricey... More
