GRUB | DownLow Chicken Shack x Opening x UBC

The DownLow Chicken Shack | UBC Campus | Vancouver, BC

UBC—(August 31, 2021) Commercial Drive's now famous Downlow Chicken Shack is set to open its second location—they also serve DownLow Burgers out of The American bar—on campus and just in time for freshman students to enjoy on University Boulevard's stacked restaurant row full of dining options.

After three years of operating the original shack, the dynamic husband-and-wife duo owners, Doug Stephen and Lindsey Mann, plan on serving the same trademark (and crazy popular) Nashville hot fried chicken and sandos alongside their sometimes wacky (never gimmicky) collaborations including specialty flavours or concoctions.

In typical Vancouver restaurant fashion, the Tennesseean-inspired purveyors of fried chicken only got the go-ahead and permits to open up their 1,654-square-foot fifty-seater counter-service eatery for customers a few days ago as DL raced to get their second shack all set up and ready for the ceremonial end of summer and start of fall semester after Labour Day.

DownLow Chicken's new outpost at UBC officially opens to the public on the first day of in-person classes, September 7th. Also, be sure to check out DL's delectably new Szechuan "Thunder Spice" (so-named after the UBC Thunderbirds sports teams) coated chicken strips available for a limited time.
