Big Chicken, Shaquille O’Neal’s quick and casual chicken restaurant in Las Vegas, has just brought back the Uncle Jerome sandwich as a permanent menu item. Nashville’s Hot Chicken Sandwich is a creation of Jerome Crawford, O’Neal’s longtime bodyguard. It was originally selected as a limited edition menu item by Facebook Watch viewers in Big Chicken Shaq’s season finale on The Chicago Sandwich, created by Anthony Hall.
Uncle Jerome retired in February when the Charles Barkley sandwich was launched. The Charles Barkley sandwich is still available for a limited time.
The restaurant’s opening in October 2018 was chronicled with Big Chicken Shaq, an eight-episode Facebook Watch series that followed O’Neal and his restaurant team. Throughout the series, fans had the opportunity to vote on menu items, the final ingredients of certain dishes, and even the restaurant logo.
Big Chicken’s menu includes signature chicken sandwiches, sauces, and sides of milkshakes and ice cream sandwiches. Big Chicken, located just off the Las Vegas Strip across from the Hard Rock Hotel, offers diners a full-service bar, nightlife hours, a backyard-style playground, and online ordering.
