Travelled to the Sunny Coast from Brisbane to sight see, came with family and loved the food. Good portions and price, delicious food, the signature burger is a must try. Very friendly service. Will definitely come back sometime soon!

Rebecca and her team catered for our recent school event (100 hungry teenagers + teachers). Not only did they provide delicious and generous food, they also delivered! Rebecca was extremely easy to work with and was happy to accommodate our dietary needs. I would highly recommend Coolum Coastal Chicken and hope to order from them again!

We actually live in Airlie Beach and everytime we drive through the Sunshine Coast we always stop by for a serving or two of their ribs. They are always moist, tender and flavoursome and have the tastiest sauce ever ! One time we dropped in the ribs were sold out and we were devastated! I don't know about their other food but the ribs are awesome and the salads always look fresh and hand made.

Hubby got us take away. Absolutely delicious!! Love the banana fritters. Also the chips we reheated next day and I never like microwave reheated chips, but these were so yummy with their gravy!! Chicken so moist!!

The signature chicken burger meal was really surprising. Burger the size of my head with masses of delicious fillings and really tasty, crispy chips. Such good value! Blows any other burger place away. 👍

The chips are as good as they were 10-15 years ago. The large chips served 5 generously.

This is the best takeaway chicken on the Coast. I recommend calling first though because they often run out of chicken in busy periods and close early on public holidays.

Coolum’s Charcoal Chicken is the best in town! Even family that have visited the area, have mentioned great things about it. Never disappoints 🐓

Fantastic burger, one of the best I've had in ages! I only put three stars for atmosphere as it's a Chicken / Fish & Chips / Burger joint, so I'm not expecting an amazing setting.

These guys need a franchise in Brisbane!! I mean its worth the drive 3 times a month. the consistency is second to none. And the chicken is the best I have ever had and as a chef of 20+ years and having a variety of styles, this one is hands down the best ever!!!

I'm new to the area and I come here at least once a week for a fresh chicken tender wrap. I have no idea what you guys put in them but they are so yummy! A quick and easy lunch stop... all the wraps are pre-made, ready to go and so tasty. Thank you.

Their chicken tenders are by far my all time favourite! Whenever I’m spending a weekend on the sunny coast I always make sure to pop in and get something from here. Absolutely delicious food & awesome service from the workers (Give a pay rise to David - Such a great bloke!) and just overall such a great vibe in there. Chips are perfect and good amount of salt for my preference. All of their chicken is delicious and juicy and their roast veg don’t even get me started! I love a good roast veg and they’ve got it! For a small little chicken shop this place will be an all time favourite visit. - Chelle

You NEED to go here! Situated just off the main street of Coolum lies this amazing shop. There is a huge menu to choose from; whole chickens, 1/2, 1/4, tropical packs, tenderloins, fish, prawns, ribs, cold wraps and sandwiches and more! The food all looks utterly amazing and the taste is equal. The chicken was full of flavour and juicy, the chips were fresh and crunchy but the most surprising thing was the gracious size of the meal, it was large enough for two! I've found a new favourite when I'm up this way.
