Sun was shining bright.  Da Chicken Coop was new and sparkly as I approached.

Order at the window.

 I was tempted to get some bbq at Coops but I needed to try this new fried chicken spot.  It’s all outdoor seating and I could feel the heat of the sun through the thin shade umbrella.  Chicken is made to order and took 15 to 20 minutes to prepare.

Skin was deep brown and crunchy.  Chicken was incredibly hot and juicy.  Secret spices in the batter gave chicken delicious flavor.
