“Rolling out breakfast was a natural addition for our catering department, which receives morning catering requests often,” said Thomas Abraham, director of operations in D.C. “After developing the “Early Bird” menu, we decided to extend our hours and launch it in the store, as well, to accommodate the demand for breakfast options in bustling Dupont Circle.”

The Chickery has built a reputation on an inventive menu of all natural, fresh, never frozen chicken. Specialties include rotisserie chicken, buttermilk chicken fingers, crafted sandwiches, hearty salads, and a variety of sides.”

    That sandwich represents 2 generations of chicken.

    I’m wondering if this place is going to hold up. They have been doing many specials to the neighboring office buildings and been changing the menu. Food is good and reasonably priced, but it seems they may have trouble holding on to on this block, which is a sad sad place for lunch options. Maybe its the curse of 19th Street bleeding over

      I disagree, the chicken is dry as can be. I’d rather have chick-fil-a honestly.

    The first thing I saw when I looked at that sandwich pic is a fried squirrel reaching out from the beyond. Anyone else? Just me?

      Not until you said something, and now I will never not see it. Would the slice of cheddar be his death shroud?

    • CVR

      Haha I didn’t see it until you ‘pointed’ it out but now I can’t unsee it.

    • TriniSoFlo

      Dammit, now i see it too. Can’t be unseen. Gross!

    • Anon

      Hahahahahahahahahahaha – yes!!!!

    • Anonthony

      Fried whole squirrel is delicious that way, but depending on the age, the skull can be pretty hard to chew up. They’re really crunchy!

    • textdoc

      Hahaha! Now I see it too.

    That half-melted cheese makes me throw up in my mouth a little. Fully unmelted or full-on gooey are the only acceptable states for cheese. ((insert joke about Wisconsin here))

    I went to Mason Dixie’s new place yesterday. Drove because it’s in the middle of nowhere. Stood in line for over half an hour, which meant I got to hear them announce “NO SUBSTITUTIONS ON ANY ORDERS” three times. Then my $8 fried chicken biscuit had cold chicken. Next time I have a craving, I’ll bike up this way instead.

    Why is there an orange shoe gel in the middle of the sandwich?
