The Crack Shack is a fried chicken spot located in SLC’s trendy 9th and 9th neighborhood. The restaurant features a pet-friendly patio and full bar featuring local craft beer from KiiTOS, Shades Brewing and T.F. Brewing, craft cocktails and wine.
The Crack Shack is a small chain hailing from San Diego, backed by cash from SLC’s Savory Fund, the backers of other notable chains such as R&R, Mo Bettahs and more.
The chain’s chicken is powered a “proprietary Crack Spice blend from Le Sanctuaire” which in turn is used in their signature bone-in fried chicken and chicken sandwiches.
