From the freshness of our free-range chicken, to the natural flavours that go into enhancing it, we love sharing the joy in good quality food in every meal we serve.
To us, you’re not just another customer; we like to get to know you by name and reward you for your loyalty.
This is your local chicken shop and we like to keep it that way.
We believe one of the foundations of happiness is in giving back. Every time you visit us, you in turn help us support our local communities.
We source our fresh produce from local businesses, employ local staff, donate food to charities and support nearby schools and sporting clubs. It strengthens our communities and the people who are part of them, which is why every time you visit, whether you take a seat, or take it to go, there is a place for everyone at the Chicken Central table.
We take our paddock to plate seriously and proudly serve the highest quality free-range chicken. Seasoned in our own special blend of herbs and spices, the chicken is rested for 24 hours and flame roasted. Infused perfectly, the result is the most flavoursome taste only Chicken Central can offer!
We love food and believe healthy wholesome eating should be fun, fresh and delicious.
Whether you are on the go at uni or work, or taking home a meal to your family, our healthy options offer the convenience of a nutritious home cooked meal.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to our seasonal selection of gourmet salads. We create our favourite combinations on site every morning with the freshest ingredients to bring you delicious and nutritious food that fuels your body with goodness!
We’ve taken the local chicken shop classics to bring you a delicious menu of free-range chicken, burgers and wraps with super healthy gourmet salads and tasty side dishes.
We are a proud 100% family run business right here in Melbourne, a city renowned for its food scene. Our goal has always been to offer the most delicious free range chicken burgers. But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve been given the tick of approval from George Calombaris who heads to Chicken Central for “great roast chicken” and by The Herald Sun, mentioning our humble chicken shops as one of the best chicken burger joints in town!
