If you're craving crispy fried chicken tenders, there might be no place better to get them than The Cluckery. But now there's even more to love about the Milwaukee Bucks-owned eatery, which has added five new offerings to the menu for their brick and mortar location at the Mequon Pavilions, 10844 N. Port Washington Rd.

In addition to their usual menu of crispy chicken tenders, macaroni and cheese and ooey gooey butter cake, the restaurant has heated things up with the introduction of a brand new offering: a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich.

The sandwich features classic Cluckery tenders tossed in Nashville-style hot sauce served on a toasted bun with pickles and a side of comeback sauce ($9).

Not into spicy? You can opt for their Deluxe Chicken Sandwich, which foregoes the hot sauce in favor of pickles, tomato, lettuce, American cheese and comeback sauce ($10).

Guests can also choose from two new sides including housemade creamy coleslaw ($3) and mustard potato salad featuring cubed potatoes, cheddar cheese and a mustard-mayo dressing ($3).

And, for those who'd like to indulge their sweet teeth, The Cluckery has also introduced a new Fruity Cereal Bar comprised of fruity rainbow cereal mixed with butter and marshmallow fluff ($3 each).

The Cluckery in Mequon is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Guests can take advantage of dine in, carry-out or delivery, along with patio seating.
