  • Don't call in your order because they don't drop it till you get there
  • They also have roaches...saw them crawling in the restaurant and immediately got my $$ back! Eat at own risk!
  • Go ahead and get a lottery ticket or scratch-off from the vendor inside! You know you want to...
  • Great food
  • Today was a good service day! Be prepared for the ghetto experience 90% of the time.
  • They take credit and debit now for purchases over $5
  • Perch fish is great
  • I'm the weirdo that orders a pizza puff at one of the best chicken chains in Chicago. But it's so good. That, the fries, and plenty of hot sauce - you won't be disappointed.
  • Wings are too Darn small! Seriously!!! The one on cottage Grove is better Cottage- 6419 S Cottage Grove Ave (btwn 64th St & 65th St). (773) 363-9586. Harold's Chicken Shack #2 IS MUCH BETTER!
  • 4 wings, mild sauce, salt and pepper.
  • They only take cash...weak as hell it's the 21st century
  • If you are going to get a pop/soda but it from the window not the machine its cheaper and you get more drank...
  • If you order on the phone, they don't make it until you get here!!!!
  • Delicious, try it with the mild sauce. TO DIE FOR.
  • Disappointed in them. I am a Grubhub deliverer and they want to charge me for a plastic bag!?!?!? I'm delivering food to your customers! You can't put your orders in a carry bag?! Really?!!!
  • Authentic fried chicken. The white bread that soaks up the grease is fantastic.
  • Fried okra with fries and mild sauce is a good vegetarian option
  • A Chicago icon. 1/4 dark is more than enough for me.
  • Can't wait to visit again.
  • ... . AsK yOur Pllo Y FosH w/ OuT tHe HoT Sauce !
