They cook it right there! Absolutely delicious... tender and juicy. The plates come with white or brown rice and corn. Prices are a little high but worth every bite. Customer service is friendly and fast. You can eat inside on their tables or take out....More

My wife turned me on to this place. She knows them mostly from high school fundraisers. The chicken is great and the ribs aren't bad, either. We keep coming back :)

We ordered the half chicken with 3 sides - salad, corn, brown rice. The chicken was so delicious - moist and tender with a crispy skin. Just like chicken should taste.

Koala has an outpost on the weekend at Bellows Beach Park entrance. The smokey charcoal rotisserie pit blows BBQ scent across the road. The whole chicken is flayed flat and placed on a spit to continuously turn over the coals. The chicken surprisingly lacks much...More

We have passed this place for years. Today we stopped, the chicken was ok, not great. It does not have BBQ sauce but lacks seasoning. We also had Ribs that were good, not slathered in BB sauce either. They were good and had a wonderful...More
