    Use to be a lot better!

    I've been going to MacArthur's for years. The last time I went I ordered perch and red beans and rice. I'm sorry but it was horrible. The fish breading was falling off the fish and it was very dry. The rice and beans had no flavor at all. Some things are okay but most food has no flavor anymore. Maybe the cooks are new.

    I visited MacArthur's once and fell in love its the best soul food restaurant in Chicago. The food is AMAZING I could eat here everyday!

    Surprised and disappointed!

    I was in Chicago for the All state Gospel Fest and decided to dine at McArthur's Soul Food Restaurant. Travelled from South Bend, Indiana after hearing that the food was really good. When I arrived, the first smell I noticed was the funky smell of chitterlings! I don't eat them so I was not happy. Next there were greens on the menu; but , no greens being served. Wth, no greens? The corn bread muffins were cold and hard. The cabbage had no flavor. The perch was dried out and tough to chew. The ribs tasted boiled. What a let down! Needless to say, I will Not be going back!

    Best Backed Chicken,,,,But!

    I have been a customer for many years, but something very vital to me has changed, and it is the candy yams, whoever is cooking them has completely taken the Candy out and I know longer buy them so please go back to the old recipe I need it with my Mac& cheese.

    The Soul of Soul

    I work at an office that the minute you mention MacArthur's you have more orders than you can care. The only thing I wish is you could order ahead with that many orders to give. Thanks for all the EXCELLENT food.

    Best large group experience

    I wanted to take a moment and thank and praise your staff for their tremendous job of working with a group of 30 from Aurora University on Saturday, February 11, 2012. I had phoned in two weeks prior to our first visit, and asked if it would be ok to bring a group of that size and I am not certain what I expected, however, what we received was beyond what we could have asked for. A seating area was set aside for us, and the quickness and efficientness of our service was very impressive. Your staff was very friendly and helpful to all of us. None of us had been to the restaurant before, but we will certainly come back. The ease in payment was most helpful to me as the chaperone. My group was quickly fed and very pleased by what we experienced. I know most people take the time to write complaints, but I wanted to stop and send our praises for our experience at your establishment. I am still eating off of my catfish three days later! Many thanks on behalf of Aurora University's Black Student Association. We will come back.
