A hip new casual dining option has arrived in downtown Burlington, where the vibe is cheeky and the food is “going to ruffle some feathers.”
Brant St. is home to the Coop Wicked Chicken … you may recognize the name from Hamilton’s original King St. W. location.
Doors opened in March 2017 and locals are flocking to the place.
Featuring lunch, dinner, and boozy weekend brunch, Coop Wicked Chicken offers fresh in-house food made with high-quality ingredients.
Offerings include Deep-Fried Deviled Eggs, Sriracha Honey Cauliflower, Hardcore Pulled Chicken Poutine, and Chicken & Waffles (topped with an egg).
The atmosphere is unpretentious and fun.

In one bathroom stall you’ll find subway tile paired with strawberry wallpaper.
