Need more chicken in your life?

Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best affordable chicken hot spots in Virginia Beach, using both Yelp data and our own secret sauce to produce a ranked list of where to venture when cravings strike.

Topping the list is J&K Style Grill. Located at 6557 College Park Square, Suite 29, in Mears Corner, the spot to score chicken wings, burgers and waffles is the highest-rated affordable chicken joint in Virginia Beach, boasting 4.5 stars out of 246 reviews on Yelp. 

The site has lots more information on J&K Style Grill.

"Southern hospitality at its best and Queen of the Waffle Burger," the business states in the bio section of its Yelp profile.

Furthermore, we found this about the business's signature items: "Our restaurant specializes in the Waffle Burger," it states on Yelp in the section about specialties. "A fresh-made Angus beef patty made on a soft made-to-order waffle. It has your regular toppings: lettuce, tomato, grilled onion, pickle, mustard, mayo, ketchup but the extra kick is the hickory-smoked bacon and fried egg that goes on top of the American cheese slice."

2. El Pico De Oro

Next up is El Pico de Oro, situated at 906 S. Lynnhaven Road. With five stars out of 75 reviews on Yelp, the chicken shop and Peruvian spot has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for an affordable option. 

Yelp reviewer Rachael K. wrote, "Ordered the whole chicken family dinner with rice, beans and plantains for delivery through Postmates. Not our first rodeo with Peruvian, and I'm happy to say this place nailed it. Food was delicious! I could eat that green sauce on anything. The chicken was moist and seasoned just right."

3. Charcoal Chicken

Charcoal Chicken, a chicken shop and Peruvian spot in Thalia, is another cheap go-to, with four stars out of 78 Yelp reviews. Head over to 4000 Virginia Beach Blvd. to try it for yourself. 

In the section on Yelp explaining specialties, the business describes its fare as "charcoal rotisserie-cooked Peruvian-style chicken." 

4. America's Best Wings

Finally, over in Salem, check out America's Best Wings, which has earned four stars out of 49 reviews on Yelp. Dig in at the traditional American spot, which offers chicken wings and burgers, by heading over to 5020 Ferrell Parkway, Suite 205. 

Yelper Richard L., who reviewed the eatery on Oct. 20 wrote, "Wings are crispy, the way I prefer and the flavors I have tried so far were really good. I like the honeymoon dust and spicy garlic. They are currently my go-to wing spot."
