Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand (Atlanta, GA)
489 Morehouse Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316, T: 404-474-9651
Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand is a tiny place on a rundown big road in East Atlanta, which bills itself as “a food truck without wheels”. J It seems to be doing great business and it smells outrageous. It is set up to become a (local) chain, but so far only has this one location. They only serve locally produced, organic chicken snacks. There are few seats inside and a few more outside.
I order The Hot Mess ($6.49), a chicken sausage with chili, pickled jalapeños and ‘comeback’ sauce on a large hot dog bun. The dark smoky flavored beany chili has a quite spicy/peppery taste, which dominates the sausage. I also get an order of Sliders ($4.99), which look a bit like White Castle burgers (or Krystal, if you’re from the South). They are chicken sausage patties on a salty little bun and 'comeback' sauce (the only sauce they seem to have). The sliders are sticky and the sauce is both sweet and very peppery.
Nice concept, but quite pricey and really only worth it for people who want to eat dogs and sliders, but do not (want to) eat beef or pork.
