Hands are nature's silverware, as evidenced by early man's serrated pointer finger and forked thumb. Get back to your ancestral roots in sophisticated, hand-fed fashion with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of Korean-style fried chicken, sandwiches, drinks, and more at Unidentified Flying Chickens. This Groupon is valid only at the Jackson Heights location and is not valid for delivery.

Lightly battered and twice fried, Korean fried chicken boasts a tender, meaty core lurking just under light, crispy tectonic plates of flavorful batter. Using fresh chickens, UFC cooks each serving to order, banishing the treacherous gaze of a heat lamp to the River of Wailing. Tender chunks of chickenry are then artfully daubed with either soy-garlic sauce, sweet and spicy sauce, pepper-flecked hot sauce, or barbecue mustard. UFC serves its whole birds ($19 for 3 pounds), wings ($10 for 10 pieces), drumsticks ($10 for 6 pieces), and combos ($18 for 14 pieces) alongside refreshing sides such as coleslaw ($1.75) and tangy Korean radish ($1.99). For patrons who prefer fingers footloose and sauce free, a handful of salads, sandwiches, and burgers are also available.

Though UFC's upstairs area has been cordoned off for carryout orders, sitting suppers can venture downstairs to the cozy dining room, which boasts dark-wood accents, green walls, and a flat-screen TV for patrons preferring a dining companion able to accurately quote Captain Ron.

Valid for dine-in or carryout only.

  • Plain brown paper bag notwithstanding, this stark spot serves some of the finest—dare we say delicate?—fried chicken we sampled; minimally sauced, audibly crunchy, and notably fresh. – Rob Patronite & Robin Raisfeld, New York
  • The best fried chicken I've had in the city- not just Korean. – Billy R., Yelp
  • Soy Garlic Chicken is a MUST GET at this Korean Fried Chicken place in Jackson Heights! – jocy c., Yelp

Unidentified Flying Chickens

UFC’s lightly fried, thoroughly crispy, delicately sauced Korean-style fried chicken has been both praised and profiled by the New York Times and New York Magazine. Fresh cuts of meat fry in oil free of trans fat and cholesterol, pulling out the fat in the skin and leaving each piece without the build-up of grease that makes American fried chicken so difficult to properly throw. The resulting crunchy exterior gets doused in a coat of one of four sauces, including traditional Korean soy garlic or tangy American barbecue mustard.
