“The time has come for us to expand outside of New Haven County and serve a new area of the state, Fairfield County. While we have met many members of our new community who have made the trip to Orange or New Haven to enjoy our award-winning chicken or ‘not chicken,’ we are excited to put down roots in this new area, with a convenient quick-stop location offering ample parking and a large delivery area for residential addresses, hotels, and office buildings!”

What’s Good at Haven Hot Chicken?

We tried everything at Haven Hot Chicken, our favorite is The Sandwich. It’s their signature fried chicken sandwich with coleslaw, pickles, and Rob sauce. You can customize the spice level- if you don’t like spicy food, get your chicken country style, otherwise turn up the heat. Beware, the chicken can get quite spicy. I suggest sticking with mild if you just want it a little spicy. Get it with a side of fries (the fries are really good). Forget ketchup, ask for house ranch to dip your fries in. And don’t leave without dessert. The banana pudding is addictive! You’ll want to come back for more!
