Big Chickie's chicken dinner.

Two very different chicken shacks are going strong in south Seattle: Big Chickie Pollo a la Brasa in Hillman City, and Nate’s Wings and Waffles in Rainier Beach.

Yeah, they’re both about chicken and sides. They’re both casual, order-at-the-counter setups. They both offer a version of that 2015 requisite, kale salad. And they’re each named after a personage—the former, owner Matt Stubb’s mom, nicknamed Chickie; the latter, co-owner and local boy-gone-Denver Nuggets hoop star Nate Robinson.

But that’s where the similarities end. Want to know more? Check out my chicken shack smackdown in the January issue of Seattle Met.
