Kyle’s Chicken House opens in Isla Vista

What started as a limited-time-only special became such a popular item at their other locations, the creators of Kyle’s Kitchen decided its Krispy Chicken deserved its own restaurant: Kyle’s Chicken House, now open at 900 Embarcadero Del Mar in Isla Vista, formerly Kyle’s Kitchen and Silvergreens.

“When we introduced our Krispy Chicken Sandwich at our Kyle’s Kitchen restaurants, it was such a hit, we knew we were onto something that people were really craving,” shared owner, Jay Ferro. “At Kyle’s Chicken House, we’re serving a fun and crave-worthy menu of comfort food you can feel good about enjoying because, like all our restaurants, everything is made from scratch in-house, using the highest quality ingredients possible.”

Each piece of Krispy Chicken made with no antibiotics spends 24-hours marinating in a herbed buttermilk marinade, and is hand-breaded to order. The sandwiches are served on special house-made brioche buns, freshly baked daily.

As the name suggests, the menu revolves around fried chicken, featuring a variety of sandwiches like The OG Chicken Sandwich, The Nashville Hot, and more. Purists can enjoy Fried Chicken Tenders or make a meal out of it, which includes krinkle cut fries, Texas Toast and dipping sauce. Also making a debut are their new Cheese Fries featuring krinkle cut fries smothered in queso cheese. The menu will continue to

As part of the “Kyle’s” brand restaurant family, Kyle’s Chicken House will also donate a portion of its proceeds to the Kyle’s Kitchen Special Needs Giving Back program, in which Kyle has already donated over $200,000 to date. The one-of-a-kind program helps people with special needs and disabilities reach their potential.

The concept comes from the Ferro Family, owners of Kyle’s Kitchen, and Kyle’s Protein Grill. Kyle’s Chicken House will also offer online ordering and catering. Hours are 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily. Visit

    I had a friend that kept telling me I had to try their chicken sandwich I had to.

    Was not impressed in the least. Not crispy, small portion, bland, and bun was just too pillowy. Also way too expensive.
