Opening hours

Jersey's own Mother Budd would be proud knowing that her famous fried chicken lives on. The Pecking Order's signature marinade and batter bring out the unique flavors in every piece of chicken we cook. Starting with Grade A Prime chicken, we treat our food with tender loving care to the peak of yum.  

The Pecking order is a family affair conceived by Bridgit and Dan Budd, with plenty of input from kidlettes, Eli, Connor, Mariah and Kate. Dan and Bridgit are long-time islanders and look forward to comforting your hearts, souls and tummies with food and fellowship.

Comfort & Soul Food for the Mind, Body & Soul. Fresh Home-Style Fried Chicken & all the fixins.
