We decided to do a walk in Keyport on Friday night after FINALLY eating in at Siam Smiles in 2+ years. Driving back, my husband spotted a place called Chickee with a clean white sign. We looked it up when we got home and saw it is a BBQ restaurant. I called to make a reservation for the next night which was absolutely not needed.
We got there on Saturday night. This place is cute. Obvious attention to detail in the space. We were the only people in for a bit then another couple came in. Our server (also was cooking) said they opened only a couple months ago but have been having trouble getting/keeping staff. We decided to split two things: the slider sampler and the total smoke. Short story, we want to come back. Longer story: the slider sampler included a pulled pork, cheeseburger and nashville chicken sandwich. We both agreed the chicken was the best. Great crunch and loved the pickle. The total smoke is a platter with wings, brisket, brussel sprouts, hot sausage, mac and cheese and corn bread. YUM. Brisket was not dry. Wings crispy and smokey. The sprouts had captain crunch cereal on top which was a fun bit.
I was surprised to see they don’t have ribs! We will absolutely be back. I really hope they stay in business!
