Fans of the beloved hot chicken purveyors will be able to dine in, take out, and order online for pick-up.

The UBC location’s menu will feature DL Chicken’s classic and most popular items, including hot chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders, and plenty of sides. An exclusive spice dust is also said to be in the works.

“When we opened our first business three years ago, we could not have foreseen the amazing support we have received thus far,” Stephen says. “We are extremely excited to be part of UBC’s campus and share our love of fried chicken with new and current fans.”

The best part? It doesn’t look like UBC students will have to wait too long — DL Chicken is slated to open its new location in time for the first week of classes in September.
