Come for the food, leave for the sluts at the bar.
Sonoma Chicken Coop has some of the best meals and home brewed beer at an affordable price. The food is delicacy that combines California cuisine with Italian cuisine. The beer is one of the best brewed in the area with a verity of selections.
However avoid service at the bar. The female bartenders act like complete sluts just for an extra tips. Plus they only seem to pay more attention to frat boys while ignoring other customers.
Nice Place, Cheap prices.... but isn't all that!.
It's OK. Not a place I'd go to though. Food is fine, waiters/waitresses are very helpful, but something isn't right. There is a pretty long line in the evenings, but I think it's worth it. Not really a party place though.
E Coli Anyone?.
This restaurant chain is so bad! There is a reason why the food is so cheap. If you don't have taste buds and enjoy getting sick then this is the place for you. Unfortunately I have had to eat here and the SJ location and they are both horrible. Only eat here if you need to lose weight fast and aren't lucky enough to catch a stomach flu.
Chicken and other stuff.
First time I went I was sort of on a vegetarian kick and ordered a salad.. like a cobb salad or something similar. What a surprise, it was quite good, had little pieces of chicken and an orchid on top for decoration.
So next time I ordered the 1/2 chicken special. I really like that it comes with a side dish and I got the pesto pasta. My daughter ordered the salmon. Good value.
The place was bigger than it looked from outside so I guess large groups could be accomodated
Great Gourmet Food, reasonal price.
Sonoma Chicken Coop is one of the best places for a fun casual dinner. They have a very wide menu, and everything there is great. My personal favorite is the Chicken Carbonara and the grilled artichoke. This is a "Self-Serve" type restaurant. You place your order at a counter, and then find a table and wait for your number to be called. It can get very busy and noisy on the weekends, so not a great first date type place. But a lot of fun for friends.
