Las Vegas is a town known for its celebrity restaurants. Well add another celebrity to that list as Shaquille O’Neal has opened a new restaurant in Las Vegas. Big Chicken opened up this week at 4480 Paradise Rd. As you can guess by the name it’s all about chicken at Shaq’s new restaurant. IThey have only been open a week and I have been here twice already. Yeah, I like the chicken sandwiches. I had the Superman which comes with Swiss Cheese, smashed avocado and BBQ buttermilk ranch sauce. The sandwich is $7.99 and for $3.99 more you can make it a Combo with Fries and a beverage. In addition to all the different chicken sandwich combinations they have they also have Chicken sliders and Chicken strips. There are seven different dipping sauces to choose from. I really liked the fries. They were different as they were the width of steak fries but thin. They have some specialty sides like country-style potato salad and Lucille’s Mac N’ Cheese that has a topping crust of crumbled Cheez-it crackers.
When I went the second time, I got an order of the sliders, which have Colby cheese and ketchup. It left me room for dessert. Big Chicken has milkshakes, Ice Cream cookie sandwiches and Chocolate Chip cookies the size of Shaq’s head.
Big Chicken is an upscale fast food restaurant using the highest quality ingredients with nice size portions at reasonable prices. I give Big Chicken a rating of 3.50 Forks.
