Description: When we boast that there is something for everyone, it's not without merit. There are classic items and ones that are completely original and unique. And then there are the wings... A lot of places talk a good buffalo wing, but the "Chegg" as it is now commonly known, truly delivers. The wings are big, juicy and available in 17 sauces, both Original Breaded, or Naked. The Chicken or the Egg has become know locally and Nationally for these big beauties. And best of all, the whole menu (breakfast too) is available 24 hours a day (in season). But for us, it's not just about the food. It's about family. It's about camaraderie. It' s about good times. So come io in and join the family. Join the fun. You'll be happy you did. Oh, and sorry about the lines. People dig us. But it' s worth the wait.

Family breakfast late in the season so it wasn't crazy mobbed. Most of the food we ordered was pretty good but the waiter was cocky, not very attentive and never brought our "dessert" pancakes-even after we asked so we ended up cancelling them
CHEG is an LBI classic but we left feeling let down

Most reviews I read said "everything" was good. Not so. The naked wings with Original Hot sauce were pretty good. The fries were ok, but the gravy they came with tasted off. The burger was over cooked. I think it was supposed to come with coleslaw, but there was none. The pot pie was ok. Service was lackluster. Maybe I should have ordered breakfast for dinner. So stick with the wings I guess?

All summer there is a long line to get into this restaurant. Once you have eaten there you understand why. In the fall the Island is delightful and this restaurant is accessible. Breakfast here with my husband was good and very pleasant.

Love the food but the decor is like funky chicken. The menu has everything you could want, and some of the best wings on the island. You can get them breaded or naked. Their sauces are very good, my favorite is Swamp Sauce. Extremely busy place have waited over 2 hours to get in at prime times. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.They are now on Nowait so you can cut your wait time. Try Chegg you'll love it plus it's not cheap but at least you won't be broke when you leave.
