Street’s Fine Chicken has always been a family venture. Marco Street and his siblings Mariel, Gene, and Dace of Liberty Burger along with their cousin Tony Street of the Y.O Ranch Steak House created this concept with their father Gene Street, founder of the Black Eyed Pea and Dixie House restaurants. They wanted to celebrate the variety that chicken can bring as a meal, and when the original Black Eyed Pea closed, they wanted the spirit of their family traditions to carry forward in their new concept. It is with that spirit that they have created some very delicious dishes like their Chicken Fried steak which is cooked homestyle on the flat top, and the slow roasted 16oz pork chops that they serve on the weekends. But as Marco told me, “The heart and soul of our menu are with our three main types of chicken, French Fried, Roasted and Toasted, and Portuguese Peri Peri chicken.”
Street’s is a great place for lunch, not just for their main dishes or big plates but because their sandwiches are out of this world! The Hell’s Chicken sandwich is a favorite of guests according to Marco as well as the brined Crispy Tenders. The tenders are brined 24 hours in French herbs, lemon juice, and brown sugar and as Marco mentioned, “That tinge of lemon and herbs really seals the deal and is a go-to for first timers.” The Hell’s Chicken sandwich is a crispy fried chicken breast tossed in a spiced chili oil, topped with jalapeño brined pickles and served on an Empire Bakery brioche bun. Of course, the Sin Killer Peri Peri and the Roasted and Toasted chicken are two crowd favorites as well. The Sin Killer Peri Peri is a little bit sweet with a spicy backbone. The Roasted and Toasted is a personal favorite of Marco. It is traditional French roasted chicken served with an herbed and toasted skin.
Oh! I can’t forget to mention their biscuits and the amazing apple jicama slaw! They have lots to choose from on their menu, you will not be disappointed. Check out their complete menu online and make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
