ST. LOUIS — Legendary basketball player Shaquille O'Neal's chicken concept will open its newest location at Busch Stadium.

The new location will feature a unique item tailored to St. Louis named the "314" in partnership with local doughnut shop, Vincent Van Doughnut. The sandwich will include the brand's Nashville Hot Crispy Chicken with Shaq Sauce and be served on a Cardinal Red Maple Bacon doughnut.

Other menu items will include the M.D.E and the Uncle Jerome alongside fries and a cookie. 

This is Big Chicken's second location in Missouri, the other at the Kansas City International Airport. The brand can also be found nationwide in arenas including Seattle's Climate Pledge Arena and New York's UBS Arena.
