DD's Chick and Cat Shack's mission is to serve quality southern food, fast. The phrase we often use is "soul food fast".

We credit our ability to serve masses at a fast pace to United States Military at the Fort Irwin National Training Center. DD's Chick and Cat Shack began as a food vendor for the troops who were training to go to Iraq. 5,000 soldiers at a time for two week rotations ate like they were home.

DD's has now become a well known name at civilian events. We always serve our signature chicken and catfish, but we are a full concession company. We also offer breakfast burritos, donuts, coffee, hot dogs, hot links, hamburgers  nachos, chili cheese fries, smoothies and much more.

THE staff

Yes, DD's has great food, but without a great staff, our products are nothing! We pride ourselves in great customer service. We treat our customers like we would like to be treated when we go to other establishments.

Our family-like atmosphere began because a few good people in our staff believed in our concept, our business and our dream from the beginning. They came aboard not asking for pay, yet they worked like they were receiving checks with bonuses.  They brought ideas to better DD's and they continue to go beyond what they are asked to do. They are now part of our management team and our bookkeeper.

Many of our events are long days and sometimes long distances. Therefore, we get an opportunity to bond like family with ALL of our staff.
