About us

A passion for southern fried chicken started years ago after visiting numerous southern states during a road trip. With direction first to Florida and only a date to end in Georgia; the trip began. The time was relaxing, exciting and informative. Traveling off the beaten path to experience some small family owned restaurants, validated our thinking.

 Eating Local is Spectacular! 

 The Carolina’s featured some of the best chicken joints but after traveling to Nashville, a determination that a fried chicken joint with all the fixings was a cuisine the Buffalo area just has to taste.

Thus, we present Rt 16 Chicken Shack & BrewYard. Local restauranteurs, Tom and Donna Pease, owners of the Blue Lantern Lounge, invite you to eat local and experience a little southern hospitality served up – our way.
