Big Chicken, NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal’s fast-casual chicken restaurant, launched Big Waffle as the Las Vegas location turns a year old. The perfect balance of sweet and savory, Big Waffle includes crispy chicken on a waffle bun with chipotle maple candied bacon and honey sriracha mayo. For a limited time only, the sandwich is available for $8.89. Fries and a drink may be added for an additional $3.99. Big Chicken’s exclusive NAKED TRUTH Premium Chicken is preservative free and humanely raised with no cages, no hormones and antibiotics ever for a Shaq-size flavor with crispy and grilled options available for sandwiches and salads.

Past limited edition sandwiches have included the Uncle Jerome and Charles Barkley. The Uncle Jerome, a Nashville hot chicken sandwich topped with lettuce, mayo and pickles on brioche bun, was so popular that it returned in May as a permanent menu item. The Charles Barkley, named after the NBA Hall of Famer and NBA on TNT analyst alongside O’Neal, delivers a sandwich worthy of its moniker with crispy chicken topped with mac and cheese, roasted garlic-BBQ aioli and crispy onions on a brioche bun.

Big Chicken Las Vegas’ opening in October 2018 was chronicled with Big Chicken Shaq, an eight-episode Facebook Watch series that followed O’Neal and his restaurant team. Throughout the course of the series, fans had the opportunity to vote on menu items, final ingredients for certain dishes and even the restaurant’s logo.

Big Chicken Glendale, the restaurant’s second location, is scheduled to open later this year at 252 South Brand, across from The Americana at Brand.
