Slim Chickens


Slim Chickens

Slim Chickens brings a taste of deep South America to Leicester. ​​​​​​

In the delta where food is honest, meals are social, and the door is always open.

Slim Chickens started with a mission to bring a dose of that southern hospitality to a fast, casual setting - serving fresh handmade food. It all started with a craving for a quick, quality meal - fresh chicken, cooked to order.

When they discovered there was a niche to fill, they rallied where lots of great startups begin, from our garage! Tireless testing and a laser-focused vision launched the first Slim Chickens restaurant in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2003.

Over a decade and thousands of happy customers later...

They know that there’s something special about their hand-breaded British chicken tenders, fresh Buffalo wings, and handmade dipping sauces that keep our loyal fans coming back… over and over again.
