The Downlow Chicken Shack is where you can listen to “Everybody Dance Now” in a small room full of people, but instead of lining up for shots, you’re lining up for fried chicken. Competing with the ’90s playlist is the staff yelling things like “Double Double Down” while they fry chicken, and this all might sound a little intense, but we always find ourselves having a great time here, mainly because the chicken is the best in the city. You can choose by-the-piece, sandwiches, or combo plates as well as your spice level, anywhere from “A Light Burn” to “Are You Serious” to “Side of Milk.” Downlow is not actually on the downlow, so make sure you allow some extra time for the line, and if you go on Monday, know that they’ll be serving dry-aged beef burgers instead of chicken.
