Look, this place looks like a dump because it's got a few booths, a counter and an alarming number of whole chickens grilling with a fantastic Greek style rub on them. DON'T be scared. My recommendation is #1, get over yourself, the food is FANTASTIC extremely flavorful moist and tender chicken with a simple rub on them served with an indescribably delicious sweet tangy dipping salsa and a pice of Pita bread. The sides are mostly pretty good (bland rice, mashed potatos, sweet coleslaw) but they are only there to compliment the chicken. You don't really EAT here. You certainly won't impress your date eating here. You don't really ask for delivery. You don't ask for anything but AWESOME food. You come with a friend, you double park or walk up, order your meal to go & eat it in your living room in front of the Television. Cheap, delicious. Don't expect the guys behind the counter to be nice to you, this is a cold professional transaction. These guys are pros in the same way many Chicago beef stand eateries are. Figure out what you want BEFORE you approach the counter, order, pay then get the hell out and go home and enjoy one of Chicago's finest meal values. I have been enjoying this place for over twenty years and I keep going back. If you try this joint you will too.

I used to live down the street from this place and I always passed it. It looks a bit shady, but WOW, great food. So simple but awesome flavor from that flat top grill and seasoning. Not greasy, and the mashed potatoes are GREAT! Just remember, they are Cash only.

I was referred here by a friend & was soooo sceptical about great flavor. Wow! my friend was right. Delicious & it was packed & ready before I could get my money out of my purse. I'll be back.

I truly love the food here, but ORDERING from them drives me crazy!! I don't know if it's their phone system of what, but I have to practically scream my apartment number and order at them. It would be comical if I weren't so hungry. "One half chicken!" "OK, you want 3 full chickens?" "What?! No!" Unbelievable. Now they don't order to my new apartment (I was at Addison, now I'm at Fullerton) because the guy doesn't want to bike out there. ....shouldn't they own a car?

I think the Chicken Hut is great alternative to high cost, fast food in the Lakeview area. However, I you'd think that after all the business those of us in the nieghborhood and beyond give this venue, you'd think the service would be more polished. I get better service at KFC; a simple THANK YOU would certainly make a customer feel encouraged to return.

This is a fast, tasty and healthy meal. The freshest of chickens, roasted perfectly, and delivered quickly while still hot from the flames. The side dishes include corn on the cob, slaw, pita, and several others. Each meal has a choice of bbq or salsa for an added flavor kick. This is a consistant purveyor of well prepared food. They have a simple menu and concentrate on doing one thing very well.
