GRAPEVINE, TEXAS – (April 28, 2022) – Grand Prairie residents will tell you they love having a Chicken N Pickle in their city. Pickleball is a hot sport and the indoor/outdoor venue is the perfect spot for gathering with friends.

Chicken N Pickle, a unique, indoor/outdoor entertainment complex featuring a casual, chef-driven restaurant and sports bar with pickleball courts and a variety of yard games.

Located eight miles west of DFW Airport, Delaney Vineyards is a historic 8,000-square-foot winery reminiscent of an 18th century French chateau nestled among the grapevines. It marks the eighth location of Chicken N Pickle, which started in Kansas City and has since expanded across the country.

The venue will feature several indoor and outdoor pickleball courts, shuffleboard and Bocce ball courts, and a variety of lawn games.

Using responsibly raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free chicken, the menu includes delicious wood-fired chicken dishes available in four different seasonings along with pork and beef sandwiches, salads and protein bowls, hand-cut fries, tots and more. Partnerships with local farmers and breweries ensure that regional favorites will appear daily on the menu.

At Wednesday’s groundbreaking, representatives from Chicken N Pickle, Grapevine Chamber of Commerce and the City of Grapevine were in attendance, as well as invited guests. Mayor William D. Tate said it was a pleasure to welcome the unique entertainment venue to the area.

“Grapevine has a well-earned reputation as a leisure and entertainment hub.
