The Chicken Shack
Address: 50 N. Valle Verde, #110, Henderson
Status: Open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and closing at 8 p.m. on Sunday
Asian-fusion Buddha Belly Deli shuttered back in July, but already another Henderson native has already taken its place. The Chicken Shack is now serving at their second local home, taking over the 2,000-square-foot location, close to the intersection of the 215 and Valle Verde Drive.
The Shack debuted in 2010 at the Sunset Mountain Vista Plaza, taking over from another fried food focused establishment, Chicken Bonz. Operated locally by Jonathan Vitt, low key and counter service, Chicken Shack has nevertheless been able to expand the franchise to Boulder City and open three shacks in California, and one each in Oregon, Colorado and Washington states.
On the menu, wings, chicken fingers, burgers, a Shack salad, sides like barbecue baked beans, macaroni salad and veggie sticks, plus a long list of sauces for the chicken including Jamaican jerk, lemon pepper, Cajun and the Damn Hot.
