Shake Shack's experimental venture into the world of poultry has been deemed a success, and the burger chain's menu is being updated nationwide. The Chick'n Shack, which received a trial run in Brooklyn over the summer, is now available at Shake Shack locations across America, including Buckhead Atlanta.

The Chick'n Shack is comprised of a fried chicken breast — antibiotic free, a rarity in the market — with lettuce, pickles, and buttermilk-herb mayo, served on a traditional Shake Shack potato roll. It's a simple take on the Southern fried chicken sandwich that has become a national trend. How does it taste? Eater New York critic Robert Sietsema compared the sandwich to other versions at fast-casual restaurants in New York. The verdict:

"It took a while, but when our talisman finally buzzed the sandwich turned out to be one of the smallest at 3.5 inches and 6.2 ounces (price: $6.29)," Sietsema wrote. "The filet was wonderfully light and crisp; the buttermilk dressing tangy. Was it my imagination or did it have an almost Midwestern flavor?"

In addition to the new sandwich, Shake Shack is adding Louisiana Hot Sauce as a condiment for those who like a little spice on their chicken.
