Al Baik is apparently the famous broasted chicken fast food chain that people who perform Hajj or Umrah come to know about because of it's limited locations. It began with only one branch in Jeddah and has extended into other locations in the Western side of KSA (ie. Madinah, Taif, Yanbu), and can only be found in these places. In Madinah there is a line of people extending around the restaurant waiting for their chicken, and it's also very popular around Hajj as well.
In 1998 ALBAIK was invited by the Kingdom’s government to serve the pilgrims at the holy site of Mina during the Hajj season and has been doing so to date. Since then the Hajj operation has been designated as a not-for-profit operation providing the highest quality of food at the best value possible to the pilgrims.
Allahuma ameen to your du'a! Same to you inshallah!
