I was wonderfully surprised to find a fried chicken & seafood fast food restaurant in the loop. I tried the Jumbo chicken wings (2) & strips (2) combination, which comes with fries & a roll. It was too much food for lunch. It was truly tasty, not too salty, which is sometimes the case with fried chicken. The chicken wings are truly jumbo and so were the chicken strips. It was well worth the price which was under $6.00 before tax. I would definitely recommend this place for fried chicken lovers, and I will be back to try the seafood and of course the chicken, I will just order a smaller size. I hope they keep up the fast, courteous service also.

Tiny, hole in the wall joint, with the best chicken fingers in the city. For $5.80, 4 chicken fingers, plenty of fries, can of soda, and a roll. Though the rolls are almost always a little stale, the fingers and fries (also exceptionally delicious) will fill you up, and for cheap too. Offers a meal card where after 10 orders, 1 free order, though it will always be the chicken fingers that keep you coming back. Just minutes from the Sears Tower, Chicago Board of Trade, Options Exchange, and an 8 minute jaunt from Union Station, it's easy enough to swing by for a quick lunch. No tables, but a counter that can seat 6, I completely recommend the Courtyard at the Chicago Options Exchange as a beautiful and peaceful (for the city) lunch hideout, only a minute walk away from the inviting yellow awning. They also offer fried chicken and (from what I hear) delivious fried fish and seafood, but again, the chicken fingers have taken hold of me. It's just south of the heart of the loop at Clark and VanBuren, and with the white-collar businesses around, there is no fear of big city problems (crime, etc.). Atmosphere only get's a 4, because though it has it's charm, it could easily fit another counter with some more stools, or even an outdoor counter, much akin to the southside's Maxwell Street (another great inexpensive hunger killer at 3900 W 31st). Great value, fast and efficient service, and killer chicken fingers makes this the perfect quick lunch alternative to fast food chains or expensive sandwich shops.
