Hatched as another collaboration between Sam the Cooking Guy and Grain & Grit Collective, CooCoo’s Nest promises bold chicken for the people, by the people with a 70’s flair. Made famous by his “everyday guy” approach to cooking with an irreverent zest, Zien brings that same panache to take on fried chicken.

The menu offers delicious crispy chicken sandwiches like the Mac Daddy loaded with mac & cheese and garlic aioli on a brioche bun, or the Hot Southern Sweetie with Mike’s hot honey, pickles, calabrian chili aioli, all topped on a house buttermilk biscuit.  Accompanied by jumbo chicken tenders, crispy chicken salads, and sides, the CooCoo’s Nest menu presents quick and easy comfort food with groovy vibes.

Join us for dine-in or takeout and get a taste that will bring you back to your happy place. Available Sunday to Thursday, 11AM-9PM, and Friday to Saturday, 11AM-10PM, inside the Little Italy Food Hall.

Little Italy Food Hall is located at 550 W Date St Suite B, San Diego, CA 92101.
