Running out of chicken is like a chinese running out of a rice or an indian running out of poppadoms. Still havent plucked up the courage to go in as I dont like being the only customer in it.

I would complain to the head office regards the manager & would then commend the staff.

Still think the name of this place sounds like a cheap horror flick.

Yeah sounds like a cheap horror flick or a blues cliche.

The manager saying he didn't have to sell chicken all the time is technically accurate. But it doesn't work well as an advertising tagline "Shecky's Chicken Shack - The Shack That Runs Out Of Chicken."

I agree about complaining to Head Office, if they are serious about developing this brand they will hopefully do something about it. Particularly as when you now google 'Shecky's Chicken Shack' 3 out of the first 4 web pages are Virtual Norwood, with a range of not very favourable reviews on there.

Intended to eat there on Sunday evening, but alas they had no ribs left.

I liked the interior, the garden, and the staff seemed helpful. But unless they sort out their stock think they will have problems.

Ended up eating at EDO, which was lovely.

Second visit on Saturday, and just as impressed as on the first, great food and service, and this time got to sit in their lovely garden.
