This itty-bitty BYOB fried chicken shack touting the tagline “make pickles, not war” offers food that hits every bit as heavy as its socially conscious sentiment.

Pro tip for the ladies: pick up Leghorn-branded free birth control pills available at the counter, all day, every day during business hours.
