For Marcus’ Shrimp & Grits, he starts with tender rock shrimp – sweet little nuggets from the sea – and gently cooks them in a spiced tomato sauce spiked with okra, seasonal vegetables, and chorizo. Served over a mound of creamy grits, this Lowcountry-inspired feast is sure to warm the heart of any diner.

The food was delivered on time and was appropriately packaged to maintain safety. More importantly, it was DELICIOUS! The pandemic cancelled our 10 year anniversary trip. However, since we couldn't go to Street Bird, bringing their Hot Honey Chicken and Cornbread Waffles to us was a treat!

The chicken was good. Not great as I was expecting. My wife does not like dark meat and I never bothered to find out what was being sent and apparently you have no choice but to get it. So I liked it and she would not eat it. But I am sure this would be stunning if I were at the restaurant where it came from.

It was such a unique mix of flavors, packaged with clear instructions. When we could not travel during Covid, it let us nonetheless experience a famous chef’s cooking—a lovely meal with several dishes!

Everything about Streetbird’s fried chicken and waffles is excellent. They don’t bother with the tasteless chicken breast, the chicken is all dark meat, where the flavor is. Each piece of chicken is prepped, all fat is removed and the breading is thin and crisp and perfectly seasoned. The waffles are amazing, crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The honey is warm, slightly seasoned, perfect for the chicken. Succotash accompanies the main dish, a lovely blend of Lima beans, tomatoes, corn and greens. I will definitely get chicken from Streetbird again, Goldbelly is a fun and delicious way to bring restaurants from across the country into your kitchen and bring a celebration to our locked-down tables.
