How can you be from Syracuse and not already be a fan of The Bird? For those who are new or may have been under a rock for the last several years, let me describe what you can expect when you visit The Bird restaurant here in Syracuse.
The most common purchase is the family feast. Depending on the size of your family and the desire for leftovers, it isn’t uncommon for patrons to order more than one.
The Bird offers fresh-cooked, juicy cuts of white meat chicken in either tenders or bites. The chicken has an amazing flavor, lightly crusted in just the right spices, unlike some other offerings with batter so thick there seems to be a more crispy coating than chicken. The Bird really enhances the flavor of the chicken. It is more than the name on the door; it is the focus flavor.
Side options include French fries, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, coleslaw, green salad, or vegetables. The traditional carbs tend to be the most purchased, and you can’t go wrong with these fresh options. The cornpones with raspberry butter are made fresh and are a nice complement. For those who like to dip, The Bird offers ranch, honey mustard, sweet & sour, BBQ, wing sauce, fry sauce, ketchup, and more.
If you have yet to experience The Bird, you need to. What a fantastic flavor burst in the city. This is the perfect example of a local flavor; you will come back often.
And they do a great job catering, too.
