sneakybird Opens in Gilbert

Local, family-owned sneakybird has opened its second Valley location. sneakybird is now doling out oven-grilled chicken wings, tenders and sandwiches at Verde at Cooley Station in Gilbert after a successful opening in Scottsdale in 2022.

sneakybird offers a fast-casual approach to delicious family dining, specializing in oven-grilled chicken wings, tenders, and sandwiches complemented by handcrafted flatbreads, tater tots and fresh chilled veggies.


“The secret to the success of sneakybird, spelled with all lowercase letters by design to underscore its sneaky-good and sneaky guilt-free product, is the combination of a specially designed oven and innovative breading recipe that blends panko flatbread as well as aged parmesan that together combine to give the crunch and flavor of fried chicken,” says Gilbert resident Jordan Strasser, managing member of J2E Investments, LLC, in a press release. “The process is applied to a gorgeous array of oven-grilled chicken wings, tenders, and sandwiches.” Strasser, along with his mother, father and brother, own the newly opened Gilbert location.

The finger-licking-good chicken is complemented with several dry rubs–like lemon pepper, salt and vinegar and salted maple–as well as a number of delicious sauces, including the buffalo-style Sneaky and Music City Hot, a nod to Nashville Hot. sneakybird also features four handcrafted flatbreads – Chicken Pesto, Margarita, Pepperoni and the Islander – as well as a trio of tater tot options. Catering is already available at the new location as well. 


In partnership with founder Chaon, J2E is in the midst of developing several locations across Maricopa County over the next 18 months, including sister restaurants in Hudson Station in Queen Creek and Prasada in Surprise, targeted for opening by Fall 2024. sneakybird also has plans for shops in Arcadia, Dove Valley and additional Southeast Valley restaurants by the close of 2025. 

sneakybird Gilbert is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, visit
