The entrance to the Chicken Lounge is not very attractive but the inside is cool. The Bar and kitchen are in the center of the room surrounded by tables. The food was really good, prices were reasonable, and the staff was friendly. We were surprised to not find fried chicken on the menu. But it had lots of other choices,... More

Their signature loaded nachos were excellent as usual, but the rest of the meal was nothing to rave about. My "fall off the bone" rack of ribs did not fall off the bone, were not very hot, and were a little dry. The baked potato was under-cooked and also not very hot. Prices were a little high for the quality... More

In my attempt to eat at every restaurant and dive in the world, I eventually found my way into this place one night. The perfect setting... In some ugly strip mall you see their sign and two doors. It seems really blagh. However, you walk in through those doors and enter a magical experince straight out of some early 70's... More

The bistro burger is amazing. Love their potatoe pancakes too. The nachos are famous. It's like they make them with Doritos versus regular chips. The pile of the topping, which are amazing. Plenty of good food from a restaurant/bar that has been a staple in town for years.

I have eaten here since 1992. NEVER a bad experience. Better than bar food, but has that theme. Open round bar is cool and you never feel closed off, even when it is crowded.

The Chicken Lounge is a unique eatery and favorite with the locals for good reasons. They have a huge selection of beer both on tap and bottled and all the food is prepared on a grill in the center of the circular dining room. There is no deep-fryer here, just great grilled steak and chicken sandwiches, platters, good soups, wings,... More

This is a favorite go to late night spot for my husband and I as they are open late in the kitchen. Good food and friendly wait staff! Nice beer selections too. All the food is grilled so no French fries but you'll get over it when you eat the nachos which can't be beat and must be tried. Order... More

In a strip mall.. U would never know its there! We sat at the bar area. They have a grill in the middle so you can see them cook the food. Very nice staff and good food! We had the steak sand and chicken carbonara.

Their wings are grilled instead of deep fried. The Mango Habanero are so very yummy. The Buffalo burgers are also delicious.
