The restaurant's main menu specialty is chicken fingers. There's also a chicken finger sandwich - a possible contender in the ongoing chicken sandwich debate - as well as Texas Toast, crinkle-cut fries and coleslaw as sides.

There are also "tailgates" - catering-sized trays of chicken fingers with dipping sauce to accompany as many as 100 chicken fingers at a time.
