Wander Through the Kitschy Confines of The Crack Shack Before It Opens

The Crack Shack, the fast-casual chicken restaurant from chef Richard Blais and founder Michael Rosen, makes its debut on the Strip on Aug. 11. The sixth location for the restaurant and first outside California lands at the front of the Park MGM, next to Eataly.

The 6,400-square-foot space features a full bar, a window for ordering, and roll-up storefront doors that bring the outdoors inside and offer optimal people-watching for diners noshing on a menu of Jidori fried chicken, the Coop Deville sandwich made with fried chicken, pickled Fresno chilies, lime mayo, and Napa cabbage, or deviled eggs. The sauce station lets diners pick their own ranch, sriracha, Thousand Island, barbecue, Baja hot sauce, sweet heat, and The Crack Shack’s own version of ketchup, Crack-Sup.
