M Henderson

Big Chicken, the franchise concept of a team of partners that includes LSU legend and Hall of Fame basketball star Shaquille O'Neal, is now open at The Queen Baton Rouge Casino. Offering crispy fried chicken sandwiches and tenders, delicious sides inspired by Shaq's own Mom, and hand-crafted adult ice cream shakes, Big Chicken combines some of O'Neal's home-cooked childhood favorites with modern dining trends.
