If you’ve spent any time in Birmingham’s street food circuit, odds are you’ve come across Yardbirds – especially if you’ve hung around Hockley Social Club. Born in 2018, it’s the ultimate team-up between some of our other street food favourites, The Bournville Waffle Company and Pietanic Pies – easily becoming the best spot in Brum for fans of American-style fried chicken.
Yardbirds has appeared all over the country since then, fine-tuning its menu at street food events, festivals and private parties. Always serving the same mouth-watering buttermilk fried chicken burgers and fried chicken strips with fries. But these fried-chicken legends finally came home last November, launching a permanent restaurant in Stirchley
Over the last year, we’ve completely ditched the competition for Yardbirds’ perfectly seasoned and crispy fried chicken dishes – which even has vegetarian and veganoptions available too. To celebrate its one-year anniversary, Yardbirds will be throwing their first-ever ‘Yard Session’ on November 10.
Keeping the doors open until late (well, 11:30pm), swing by in the evening for chicken, craft beers and cocktails, as well as a live DJ cranking the tunes. There’s going to be 20% off drinks all night to celebrate too! If you fancy stopping by for a meal before the party, loyal customers and chicken lovers can claim a free pint, a glass of Prosecco or soft drink if you book between 5pm and 8:15pm!
You’ll find Yardbirds’ amazing range of burger choices on the menu. From Buffalo Sauce and Caesar Salad-style twists to the Vegan Chick-Potle (with Mexican cheese and chipotle mayo). But Yardbird’s standout for us is the Dirty Chicken & Waffle: buttermilk fried chicken thigh with streaky bacon, pickles and dirty cheese sauce, all served on a malted waffle. Or why not grab a side of wings?
If you miss the party, throughout November, every Wednesday and Thursday, Yardbirds is offering the perfect mid-week treat with two-for-one drinks for those dining in. To book a table head here. It’s the best finger-lickin’ chicken in Birmingham! (Can we say that?)
