Chicken Restaurant With Best/Worst Name of 2012 Coming to Tempe

Z. Fowle
What's in a name?

In the case of Bad Mother Cluckers, a new late-night, fowl-filled eatery in Tempe's Mill Avenue District, chicken -- and lots of it.

Set to open on Friday, August 24, Bad Mother Cluckers (BMC) will feature signature rotisserie and fire-grilled chicken as well as salads, sides, beer, and wine in a newly remodeled indoor dining space and outdoor patio.

Read on to find out about BMC's special grand opening plans, especially for ASU students (hint: free chicken), and learn more about its "coop."

Located at 26 East University, in a once-abandoned building just off Mill Avenue, BMC's new "coop" comes from months of cleaning up, remodeling, and doing major repairs on a structure that's been vacant for years.

And if you're an ASU student, BMC's grand opening, happening from 4 to 9 p.m. on Friday, August 24, and from noon to 3 p.m. and 4 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 25, means free chicken when you flash your student ID.

It sure took long enough for something to go in the old Shop of Art space. How long ago did that place fold, anyway? I'm sure it has to be at least 15 years now...


The name reminds me of a place in Tucson near the university that also did chicken... Cluck U.


 @JKGrence There used to be a Cluck U in Tempe, also.  They had some good chicken.
