Slim Chickens is bringing the SAUCE to Bournemouth! That’s right, you heard it here first, US-born chicken brand Slim Chickens is coming to spice up Bournemouth, a destination set to be the hottest ticket in town.
‘Slims’, as it is affectionately known, is quickly building a reputation as one of the up-and-coming restaurant brands in the UK, and it’s chosen Bournemouth for its 13th UK opening at the end of the month 29th July, when it will be throwing open the doors from 10.30am. At Slims, everything is Always Fresh, Always Welcome.
Famous for chicken tenders and huge in the USA, Slim Chickens offers good old Southern Hospitality serving up cooked-to-order premium chicken, with a side of Blues music – creating a relaxed, casual but memorable experience.
With family seating, intimate tables, booths and large platters cooked-to-order and brought to your table in less than 10 minutes, diners can choose the brand’s signature buttermilk-marinated chicken and house specialties include crispy tenders alongside a huge range of 15 dipping sauces. These include Slim’s signature sauce, Blue Cheese, Honey BBQ, Sriracha Garlic and the fiery Inferno – with serious heat!
Also on offer is a wide selection of fresh chicken sandwiches, wings, salads and wraps as well as sides such as fried pickles and mac’n’cheese. Drinks include hand-spun shakes in flavours such as Oreo, popcorn and caramel, a Slims’ IPA and unique cocktails like the Corn Star Martini and Whiskey Smash. Food and great tasting drinks are served up alongside BT Sport, with US sports, Premier League and Champions League shown.
Opening from 10.30am to 11.00pm (12.00am on Friday and Saturday) in the popular year-round coastal staycation spot, Slims delivers on every aspect of customer service, working keenly with the local community. It’s set to serve 14,000 Bournemouth University students alongside hordes of town and beachfront visitors holidaying at home this summer, especially families who have to feed a crowd, fancy a night off from cooking or people who want to meet up with friends and bring satisfying conversation to equally satisfying food.
You’ll find Slims occupying 4,500 sq m opposite Hilton’s flagship hotel and the new hang-out spot is close to the Lower Gardens and award-winning beach, within the BH2 shopping centre and next door to the Odeon multiplex. Not only is Slims the latest go-see– but it’s boosted the local economy through 50 jobs offering excellent team training and career progression.
The restaurant can seat more than 100 inside and 30 alfresco. Everyone can take advantage of Slim Chickens’ UK app offer, which gives a 20 per cent discount on the first visit, plus loyalty rewards – three wings after three visits, free tenders after six and a free meal after 10. Set meals offer exceptional value with three tenders, three wings, Texas toast fries, house sauce and bottomless soda priced £10.95. Home delivery is also available via Deliveroo, Just Eat, Uber Eats or click and collect.
Pop on in and visit Slim Chickens and share the excitement and look out for the hand-painted guitar themed on local landmarks.
