CHICKEN-CHICKEN-CHICKEN is what the all-new CRACK SHACK serves.
Fried chicken, chicken in unique home-made dipping sauces, salads with chicken, Hanover breakfast sandwich with eggs, honey butter dipped fried breast or thigh, Senor Croque made with crispy chicken, bacon, fried egg and cheddar for a start.
Then there are the fresh salads and bowls like the Anti-Salad Power Bowl with smoked chicken, soft boiled egg, heritage grains, chef’s salsa, avocado, and arugula which is very refreshing. A yoga name, the Downward Dog, has grilled veggies, quinoa, house-made hummus and lemon yogurt, and the Border Slaw with papaya, mango, jicama, coconut, chili and pineapple, a good lunch item.
CRACK SHACK is open all day. They also have great fried chicken oysters and deviled eggs along with a full bar, which serves a grand blackberry mule made with vodka, Crème de Mure, lemon, and ginger.
This is the sixth location and the first outside of California. The CRACK SHACK keeps a rustic farmhouse interior and features a signature larger-than-life rooster statue wearing a Vegas Golden Knights jersey. Murals are created by Matt Forderer showing chicken showgirls with giant chicken heads, a great “selfie” post if I ever saw one.
Located at Park MGM next to Eataly on the strip, the 6,400 sq. ft space is fun and relaxing. Chef Richard Blais has created some very tasty items. There are roll-up storefront doors and you have a great view of the strip. Mike Rosen is the founder.
