About the Restaurant

On a fateful trip to the south in April of 2010 Ian bit into a piece of fried chicken that would change his life forever. Having never had fried chicken that was so fresh, juicy, and delicious he was unaware of the potential that lied within such a simple bird. That bite brought with it a realization, that not only was this something that the North lacked, but it was something that it desperately needed.

Two years later, after an ex told him he couldn't do it, Ian signed the lease for what was to become The Flying Chicken. Shortly thereafter he realized there was a problem, he didn't know how to cook.

In comes Josh Coletto, a CIA trained chef that was integral in making Ian's vision a reality. Josh has since moved on but the recipes he created serve as the foundation for The Flying Chicken as it is today.

Now the kitchen is run by Chef Guinevere Davis who not only brings a wealth of knowledge but also a warmth that truly puts the soul in soul food.

The Flying Chicken Troy offers American, Burgers, Catering, Salads, Sandwiches, Steak, Wings.

  • That catfish knocked me on my ass. Perfectly cooked and arrived hot. Portion was good and the aggressiveness of the seasoning was, for my taste, refreshing. A side was missing but I'm too happy and impressed to care. I'll be ordering again soon. Arrived on time and the driver was a pleasant young man.
