Kick’N Chicken plans third LI location, this time in Huntington


Shortly after announcing his plans for a second Kick’N Chicken location in Smithtown, word on the street says owner Ryan Carroll will heat things up in Huntington next

The two new eateries are planned for 20 East Main St. in Smithtown’s Village Commons shopping center and 339 New York Ave. in Huntington, where Pete’s Famous Cheesesteaks had previously operated.

Known for its take on the widely popular hot chicken concept, Kick’N Chicken makes chicken in all the ways one can imagine: tenders, buckets, chicken and waffles, sammys, plates and wings, among even more varieties. 

The menu also includes vegetarian options, such as their plant-based chicken sandwich.

One of the bestsellers, Carroll said, is the OG Sammy — with heat level “Hot AF.” It involves fried chicken breast with a lot of heat, Kick’N pickles, slaw and sauce on a brioche bun. 

Both locations are in their beginning stages and opening dates are yet to be determined.
