Chinatown’s popular Southern-inspired eatery Juke Fried Chicken (182 Keefer Street) has announced that it will be opening a second location in the city this summer.
The restaurant’s second establishment will be situated in the West End (1074 Davie Street), which will offer its signature favourites such as gluten-free fried chicken, sticky pork ribs, and cornbread, among others.
Juke’s second home occupies a 1,100-square-foot space that will be a fully-licensed, counter-service spot. Word of mouth tells us that guests will be able to find some new menu additions here, including rotisserie chicken and milkshakes.
In addition to expanding its business to mark its second anniversary, the fried chicken-and-rib joint will be serving up a fried-chicken sandwich special on National Fried Chicken Day tomorrow (July 6) beginning at 11 a.m.
Its well-loved chicken sandwiches (made with buttermilk marinade chicken, house-made barbecue sauce, and slaw) comes in regular and spicy flavours, and will be offered for $3 each (normally $6.50) for dine-in or take-out.
“National Fried Chicken Day is one of the biggest days of the year, at least on our calendar, so it’s the perfect time to reveal our plans to bring Juke to a new neighbourhood this summer,” Justin Tisdall, co-owner of Juke’s alongside chef Bryan Satterford and Cord Jarvie, said in a press statement.
Juke’s West End location is scheduled to open its doors at the end of the summer.
