Your neighborhood chicken joint

Locally Sourced × Crafted with Love


Located in Portland and Beaverton, Big's Chicken is a new venture from four local chefs with a deep love for chicken.

Big's Chicken opened in April 2017. Chef Ben Bettinger, also the head chef at Laurelhurst Market, runs the kitchen. You may remember him as the winner of the Food Network's Chopped (season 22), but don't be fooled: Big's is a restaurant for everyone. You won't find fancy foodie talk here—we're all about great food and a welcoming atmosphere, creating a space where everyone can enjoy themselves.

At Big's Chicken, our specialty is Alabama-style chicken that's smoked, then slathered in a white barbecue sauce that we like to call "white gold." We like to think the perfectly crisped chicken is best enjoyed alongside our house-made coleslaw and signature Jo-Jos—and we have a feeling you'll agree.

Big's is brought to you by Your Neighborhood Restaurant Group, the proud owners of Laurelhurst Market, Ate-oh-Ate, Reverend's BBQ, and La Luna Cafe. If you know our restaurants, you know our commitment to quality, flavor, and friendly service.

We look forward to seeing you at Big's!

The fine print: A service charge will be added to all large pickup and delivery orders. This fee will go towards the kitchen for the extra work to prepare the orders. On pickup orders over $200, there will be a 15% charge. For all delivery orders and full-service catering, there will be an 18% fee assessed. Thank you for your understanding.
