The Dirty Bird is a Morgantown original that you must try. If you like Primanti Brothers sandwiches you will love Dirty Bird. I recommend the Vera Cruz or the Buffalo Chicken. Make sure you come hungry the sandwiches are huge!!

This eatery offers all fare chicken including a chicken Reuben sandwich. Generous portions, one sandwich will feed two easily. Friendly staff. Their specialty is fried chicken but the sandwiches are surprisingly grease free and healthy. Something for everyone unless you crave beef, pork, bison.....etc.

Stop by. Fresh and fabulous! Yum Yum and soooo reasonably priced. Staff loves their job and will customize sandwiches per your request. No wait time, no foods prepared and reheated in microwave.

We were visiting our son for Parents Weekend at WVU and stopped here for lunch. We all got the Turkey Treason. Oh my! What a delicious sandwich! And be warned - it's HUGE! It's a small place, so you may have to wait a few minutes for a table, but it's well worth it. Everyone was very friendly. Would definitely... More

OMG - that chicken is a must on my calendar every week. I get a craving for this chicken and I am dying right now because they shut down for the summer. I cannot wait till they open back up. The best tasting fresh chicken I've ever eaten.

Dirty Bird is the best. The portions are huge . And the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is the best I've ever had. I won't order it at any other place now because I know it will just disappoint.

I have been to The Dirty Bird many times over the past few years and the food is always cooked perfectly and I always receive excellent service by staff who seem to care even when they are busy and the wait is long.

Met for a quick "business" lunch when I walked in I must admit I didn't expect much and boy was I wrong!! The sandwich was not only HUGE but Great tasting. I ended up taking the other half home for my wife to enjoy for her lunch. The big trick is finding a place to park.
