The Original Charcoal Chicken

Charcoal roasted chickens made fresh daily

Frequently touted as serving “the best chips and gravy in Launceston” (aka, the best hangover cure), The Original Charcoal Chicken has been a Launnie institution since 1995.

Serving whole or portioned charcoal roasted chickens, burgers, chips, salads and sides, this little shop is sure to win the heart of anyone who loves a good cooked chook.

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  1. Top notch potato bake

  2. Speedy service

  3. Always delicious smokey roast chicken
