While this would be the first Sticky’s location in Hudson County, other locations have already popped up throughout the New Jersey. But the upcoming restaurant already has a leg up on things with its new Hoboken location.

112 Washington Street, the former site of the cult-classic Cluck-U-Chicken, serves as Sticky’s new Hudson County home – a location already well-equipped to handle Sticky’s top-quality fried chicken output.

Not just any old chicken joint, Sticky’s uses antibiotic and hormone-free chickens and locally-sourced ingredients; thus, often earning Sticky’s the moniker of “gourmet fried chicken.” 

But it isn’t simply the chicken itself that’s got people talking, it’s the way it’s prepared. The eatery has several mouthwatering specialties that keep customers coming back.

The Chicken and Waffles is an indulgent mix of bite-sized waffles and their famous chicken poppers tossed with its signature waffle sauce, crushed red pepper, and graham crackers.

The chicken poppers, crispy bite-sized fried chicken, are one of the mainstays at Sticky’s, but it’s really known for its chicken fingers. These crispy tenders can be ordered as-is or in a wide variety of styles such as Thai Fiesta, Buffalo Ranch, General Sticky Tso, Honey BBQ Club, and the Vampire Killer – a unique blend of Vampire aioli, parmesan, garlic chips, and pink peppercorn flakes.

Other favorites include Carlos’ Hot Chicken, and their Popper Nachos, a sinful blend of their chicken poppers, Pico de Gallo, mac sauce, cray sauce, and sesame seeds. In addition to the more popular items, Sticky’s also offers delectable sandwiches, wraps, and salads featuring their signature gourmet chicken. 

But some don’t even come to Sticky’s for the chicken. No, the decadent fries too have their own devoted following. Some of the more inventive French fries such as Cajun Fries, Bacon Mac Fries, Truffle Parmesan Fries, Fiesta Fries served with sweet Thai chili sauce, and the truly unique S’more Fries – Sticky’s famous fries covered in marshmallow and chocolate sauces, topped with crushed graham crackers and mini-marshmallows — are some of the most noteworthy.

There is no official opening date for Sticky’s in Hoboken, but we’ll keep you updated as the details continue to unfold.
