NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — You can't go wrong with chicken and waffles, the most popular menu item at Dirty Bird Chicken N' Waffles.
The food truck has been in business for 5 years, but now it's looking to settle down as well and have a physical location.
Raul Parker is the owner. He's also a full time police officer and a full-time dad to a three-year-old.
He said when he decided to open a restaurant, people thought he was crazy.
But Parker said he'll sleep once he gets the business to where he wants it to be so that he can step away and be less hands-on.
The new location for Dirty Bird Chicken and Waffles is at 6004 Buffalo Avenue in Niagara Falls, Parker's home town.
"Everybody always asks back home: when are you bringing the truck home? You're never in Niagara Falls. So I had to open it up it was only right, and I had to do it in Niagara Falls," said Parker.
The new location will feature some menu item favorites and a new addition.
"We have the Dirty Burger Po-Boy, which is kind of like a hoagie roll, Castanzo's hoagie roll. We have our original Dirty Bird Chicken Sandwich and one of the newer items that's going to be on our menu at the brick and mortar location is our Dirty Bird Chicken Sandwich which is available in either original or Nashville hot," said Parker.
Dirty Bird announced the restaurant will open February 11th with a grand opening slated for February 15th.
