You’ve probably been to a pop-up dinner. Or shopped at a pop-up retail shop. But have you ever ordered crispy delicious fried chicken delivered right to your home from a pop-up concept?
It’s a thing thanks to Cluck N’ Que, a new delivery-only pop-up launched by the fun-filled folks at Stand Eat Drink Hospitality.
As the story is told, the concept was born at a Hotel Madrid family meal not long ago, during which Chef Matt Kerley – who originally hails from North Carolina – served the staff a platter of his (apparently delicious) homemade fried chicken. As the rumors go, staff responses included "OMG!" and "Wow, that chicken was so f#*! good!"
Realizing that they’d stumbled upon a very good thing, the folks at SED decided to share their discovery with the world through a delivery-only pop-up concept called Cluck N’ Que.
The menu, which is only available through UberEats, features two-, four- and 16-piece portions of buttermilk-battered fried chicken served up with sides of coleslaw and a pickle ($9/$15/$36) and Carolina-style BBQ Pork sandwiches for just $9, also served with coleslaw and a pickle. Add a slice of good old fashioned southern chess pie for just $6 more.
Cluck N’ Que items are available for delivery through UberEats Sunday through Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. or Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
