If you can get past the exterior...once you order chicken from Chic-A Sea you will never ever have another fried chicken experience.

Been going to Chic - A - Sea for over 25 year's & The " Big Chic Sandwich " still is the best chicken sandwich around ... Even though the amount of chicken in the sandwich used to be alot more , A big chic combo meal still keeps me full for half the day !!!!

I was in Newport News, VA for the Joyner Family Reunion. The chicken for the family dinner was from Chic-A-Sea. It was the best fried chicken I have EVER had. I asked a family member who was serving the food, who cooked the chicken? I was told that cousin Maxine did it. She works at the restaurant on the corner.... More

Chic-A Sea has the best fried chicken I have ever tasted. I love this place because not only is the chicken good, but they have a variety of other items to choose from that are also good. The have very low prices as well.
