My friends had told me about this place - i finally ordered some takeout. Y-U-M-M-Y!! The chicken was not greasy, the skin was crisp and tasty, and juicy juicy inside. You could tell it was real organic chicken - not the giant hormone and antibiotic pumped sizes that other places have. Try it with the chili vinegar - it adds a really nice kick. For me - definitely return. Absolutely recommend!! Oh and the service - very fast and friendly.....

My husband and I just moved from Texas, so we know good southern fried chicken. Based on the good reviews from this site, I placed an order for carryout and was very disappointed. The pieces were TINY (more like pigeon than chicken) and both the meat and the roasted potatoes were overcooked and SWIMMING in grease. The chicken's only flavor was grease, and in fact the chicken was so greasy it was soggy rather than crispy. We agreed that this is the worst fried chicken we have ever eaten. I would not recommended this place for food or service--we certainly will not return again.

Pros: None

Cons: Soggy, flavorless tiny portions

Service was very quick and very friendly. The chicken, roasted potatoes and mac & cheese were delicious and the price was reasonable. This was by far the best take out chicken I've had in Manhattan!

When I first heard about Dirty Bird To Go I thought "organic free range chicken...done by a top chef from Louisiana. How can it go wrong? At the very least, if she's from the South she should know from fried chicken!"
So off I went to read the reviews...dreadful. The chicken was unseasoned, the batter was too thick, the batter was too sweet, the mac and cheese was under salted the staff absolutely could not get the orders correct and almost worst of all none of the promised pepper vinegar.
I then realized that most of the reviewers probably went within the first weeks when they were still getting the kinks out. I went yesterday July 4th following a recommendation by AM New York.
So I, along with my intrepid friend went to try it. We were lucky to find the place empty at that moment

THE FOOD
Was delicious. And perfectly done. ALL OF IT.
The chicken was delicately seasoned, letting the natural flavor of the chicken shine through. It was succulent and salted through to the bone (which I had to keep myself from knowing). This was also true of the breast pieces which can end up dry in less expert hands. The buttermilk batter was not too thick and was also well seasoned. Some of it fell off in little chunks so you could save it for crunching later. Oh but said buttermilk batter positively sang when paired with a few sprinkles of the pepper vinegar! Apparently the vinegar thing doesnt only work at the British fish and chip places. Who knew?
The garlic kale was very good as was the dirty rice. The dirty rice was not aggressively flavored but it was not bland either. It went very well with the chicken. I also had the corn bread which was great on its own but it also turned out to be delicious dipped in their honey mustard sauce.
To wash all this down I got two MORE pieces of that awesome chicken and a thirst quenching Dirty Palmer
So I said all that to say quit reading ..get to Dirty Bird!!!
p.s they had great customer service.

Pros: Delicious organic fried chicken

Cons: You have to find a place to eat it if youre not there the moment one of the 4 stools are free

I've developed a little bit of a dirty bird addiction. My faves are the fried chicken fingers - tender, juicy, salty, cripsy delicious chicken tenders, served with a tangy sweet dipping sauce and an even yummier pepper vinegar that it so good that I've been saving my leftover vinegar to put on EVERYTHING. The only downside is that the tenders are huge and a serving of five is too much food for me alone. I also recommend Ali's Chopped Salad, a cripsy delicious salad that is pushed over the line from good to sublime by the addition of some kind of spicy red pepper chopped over the top, along with Maytag blue cheese. And the whole thing is topped off with a surprisingly tart buttermilk dressing. So good. I have eaten in-store, which is fun and often busy, and I have ordered for delivery. Was impressed by how fresh the delivery was - food still hot, chicken still crispy, greens still crisp. I am so glad to be able to get food this good delivered quickly.

Cons: portions very large

This is some of the best chicken I've ever tasted. The batter is amazing and the chicken is so fresh and juicy. I've been there 4 times -- each time is better than the last. They've added some sides and I think they've got it going now. And the delivery is fast. Sure beats cooking!!

This place is really a joke. $7.50 for 1-1/2 pieces of chicken (the dried out-wing doesn't count as a whole piece) and NOTHING ELSE is ridiculous. If it were good, that'd be one thing, but it was greasy and flavorless. Not to mention that the breast wasn't cooked all the way, yet almost burnt on the outside. Learn how to cook chicken (as well as clean it-I shouldn't see lumps of fat under the breading) before calling "good fried chicken." Popeyes may be a national chain, but they at least give you great chicken with a good biscuit and a side for less than $7. That's where I'll be heading next time I'm on 14th St.

Went there for dinner the other night, the fried chicken was excellent - fresh, juicy and the batter was delicious, the roasted potatoes were the best I have had - takeout or restaurant, the kids loved the chicken fingers, can't wait to try the rest of the menu which will be very soon!

I've been to Dirty Bird five times now and there's been some valleys, but mostly peaks. The rotissarie chicken was good every time - I had one bummer meal when the fried chicken was overcooked. The kale has been GREAT everytime and the dirty rice not bad. Worth the price when it's good.

Pros: At its best - great, Nice vibe inside

Cons: At its worst - so-so, Can get crowded

I've been waiting for a place that serves organic and local foods which are actually tasty! Dirty Bird does it all, the fried chicken is AMAZING, probably the best I've ever had and the sides are great. You can't beat the price for the quality.

A HUGE disappointment! We waited 45 minutes for our order in which they forgot to include our drinks and our sides---apparently, they ran out and failed to let us know that we would not be receiving both sides. The chicken was juicy, but I guess it would be if not cooked all the way through---bloody at the bone! And, yes, flavorless---super overpriced!

I paid eleven bucks for essentially four large hunks of hard fried batter with scrawny chicken parts embedded deep within them -- and no side orders. No way I'm going to make that mistake again. Fried chicken should be fleshy with a light crust, and this was the total opposite of that.
