Wow this place is a best kept secret! The Dirty Board DOES NOT disappoint. Awesome fried chicken. Awesome sides. Awesome sandwiches. Smaller seating area so avoid peak times if you want to dine in. We will DEFINITELY return.

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!!
