Big Chickie is a modern roadside chicken shack serving charcoal rotisserie chicken, homemade sides, salads, sandwiches, beer & wine.
We're located in Hillman City, in the refurbished Rudy's Service station at the corner of Rainier Avenue S and S Findlay Street - just a few blocks south of Columbia City and one block north of Orcas Street.
The one & only Big Chickie - our story:
We opened Big Chickie in September 2014, following our extensive remodel of the long vacant Rudy’s service station in Hillman City. It’s our first and only restaurant, and it’s inspired by the things we love best: good food, friends, family and community. We make all of our food fresh right here in Hillman City.
Growing up in the Washington D.C. suburbs, Peruvian style charcoal rotisserie chicken was my family’s go-to take-out meal. My parents lived in Peru for three years in the late 60’s and served in the Peace Corps. They brought back a love of the people and food of Peru, and shared that with me.
Having moved to Seattle long ago, I found myself missing one of my all-time favorite meals. We knew we wanted to share charcoal rotisserie chicken (pollo a la brasa) with our community.
The Peruvian charcoal rotisserie chicken (pollo a la brasa) I grew up with was amazing, but the sides were always limited to french fries and coleslaw. We knew we wanted to offer more, so we have worked hard to create a menu that satisfies our community. We offer 10+ homemade vegetarian sides, a variety of platters and a range of housemade sauces and salads, freshly baked corn muffins and tasty beer & wines. We like to think of our menu as modern comfort food. Of course, we still offer the french fries and coleslaw!
Our awesome team is what makes Big Chickie great. Many of our team members are our neighbors here in Hillman City and in the Rainier Valley. We’re proud to employ so many local youth, and we support all of our team members in reaching their career and educational goals.
Sara and I have made our home in South Seattle since 2009. This community means the world to us. We’re proud to raise our daughters here, and to serve great food and beer here. We are thankful to all our neighbors and fellow Hillman City business owners that make this such a great spot to be.
Thanks for your business - we hope to see you again soon.
