A southern-style chicken restaurant will open up at The Forks next week for two days only.

Vancouver-based DownLow Chicken Shack will serve up finger-lickin’ goodness at Muddy Waters on September 22-23.

“The DownLow Chicken Shack has been a wild ride for us,” said Doug Stephen Jr., son of Muddy Waters’ owner Doug Stephen Sr.

“Every day, we have line-ups out the door and sell out of chicken before closing time. Muddy Waters is the perfect spot for us to introduce Winnipeggers to Nashville hot chicken.”


The DownLow Chicken Shack opened in June on Vancouver’s Commercial Drive.

The pop-up’s menu will include the signature Nashville hot chicken ranging in five heat levels, from mild to “A Side of Milk,” as well as chicken-on-a-bun, full-sized wings, and southern-style side dishes.

The pop-up is slated for Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. or until the chicken is sold out. No reservations will be available.

Muddy Waters previously announced it will close its doors on September 30 as The Forks moves in a different direction for the longtime space.
