To accompany the extensive drinks list, Fat Belly Jack’s boasts the best fried chicken in Brisbane. After a fried chicken ‘crawl’ of America, co-owner Ben Kagan took the best elements from all the fried chicken discovered on his travels in order to produce this recipe.

Having travelled from California to Louisiana, the best fried chicken he discovered was in Nashville. “There are a couple of places doing Nashville fried chicken in Australia but nobody has nailed it like we have. We are confident that our recipe is the best,” says Ben.

The fried chicken is cooked in a southern-style batter and can be dunked in a variety of spicy coatings from ‘mild’ to ‘REALLY F%*KING HOT’ featuring some of the world’s hottest chilies.

In keeping with the food and drinks, music at Fat Belly Jack's will range from classic American blues and country music to rock, soul and funk.

Fat Belly Jack’s officially opens on Oct 4th from 12pm.
