I've been going here 1-2 times a year for 20 years because the chicken is good. But make no mistake, the only thing you should get here is the chicken! Fries are ok. Coleslaw, broasted potatoes, shrimp and ribs are below average at best. Make your own sides at home and pick up 20 pieces of the broasted chicken.

The place is very small, with no place to eat onto table. Its just a carryout place. The chicken is dry but on the plus, the chicken is extra crispy. The decor is obsolete and the staff is polite. It is nothing to write home about- ehh.

This place is to go only. And has excellent Broasted Chicken, if its made to order fresh. Otherwise, sitting chicken dries out. Then I'm unhappy. No sides for me, just Chicken! I read on the menu their cooking oil is cholesterol free. YAY!

Whenever I come to Chicago I ALWAYS make sure that I stop here. The Chicken Inn has the best chicken I've ever had. The place is take-out only. Call ahead and your order will be ready when you get there. Beware, the chicken and broasted potatoes are cooked fresh and can remain scorching hot on the inside for a while... More

This is take out only. there are no tables, and parking is very limited. Get in, Get out, and be ready for some of the best... More

If you like your fried chicken with a crispy breading, then this place is for you. The chicken is tender and moist. A nice alternative to "the Colonel". Hand cut fries. Take out only unless you want to stand in a small cramped area to try and eat

Our family makes a trip to Chicago once a year to visit family. Whenever we make the long journey, there are certain food items that we MUST have while we are in town. Chicken, ribs, and broasted potatoes from the Chicken Inn is at the very top of our list! The Chicken Inn is a little carryout place - you... More

I absolutely LOVE their chicken and broasted potatoes. They have several other things to chose from, but it's the broasted chicken that is the best. It has the most amazing flavor. Do yourself a favor and don't pass this little take-out/ delivery place up.

Always great chicken. Some friends and I did a taste test with local chicken places and the Chicken Inn won hands down. Everyone I have brought there agrees. Not to excited about any of their sides, but there chicken is great.
