Best Fried Chicken in Tribeca!

We love that Tribeca now has a great fried chicken place for cravings to be satisfied on site, to go or delivery. Dirty Bird To-Go is a great addition to the downtown scene. Fried chicken the way it's supposed to be...light and crispy, juicy and flavorful. We went as soon as it opened and blogged about our experience (visit address below). This place is definitely worth checking out...often!

the good, the bad and the tasteless

i am from TX originally so i KNOW good chicken and greens and mac & cheese. let me just say that OMG their chicken fingers are SO disappointing. WAY overcooked to point of being tough. tasteless. thick cuts of meat but so overcooked the flavor is gone. the breading is thin and tasteless. how hard would it be to (god forbid!) add FLAVOR to the breading, maybe cracked pepper, paprika, Mrs Dash, SOMETHING. the tables are cozy and have a down-home feel that reminds me of tiny joints back home. the quick service is great, the cashiers are usually young and just going through the motions but hey, it's worth it for the SIDES. the outdoor seating (weather permitting) is a nice touch especially because it's unexpected since the place is right on ever-busy 14th street. it's a good small quaint place to stop in and get your bird on. HOWEVER as much as i rant about the lacking chicken fingers i BRAG ON THE SIDE DISHES! the sides and rotisserie chickens are the stars of this place HANDS DOWN. this place has THE BEST MAC & CHEESE i have eaten in NYC. the mac & cheese is a religious experience. the kale is fantastic with it's garlic touch that proves the owners are capable of seasoning. the sauces for the chicken fingers are just ok. i've been a few times but the smell of the rotisserie chicken is so fantastic i never get to the salads. i just dive in and eat the fried chicken or rotisserie and nosh on the sides and call it a day.
