Great raw chicken to start with makes BBY's chicken great. You don't even need dunking sauces. Locals get carry-outs a good sign. I would also recommend carry-out although the wait is long it's worth it. The restaurant's decor is basic utilitarian and seating is limited. Open Tue-Sun 4-9 pm

Chicken strips and fried pickles are a favorite. Large portions. 30 min wait on average. Best for carry out.

I went to this place twice during my stay in Dixon, the first anticipating an average chicken tenders basket, the second practically drooling in anticipation. This was some of the best chicken I've ever had, if not the best. What you get with a chicken tenders basket: a nearly bucket-sized portion of hot, delicious, deep fried chicken tenders atop a...

We have been trying new places in Dixon. They have a lot to offer when it come to little family owned businesses. We decided to try the chicken place. First off you can sit down and dine in the restaurant it isn't just carryout. We walked in and was greeted by the owner. He asked if we wanted to order... More

Visited Dixon Illinois on a weekend getaway. Everyone at the hotel raved about BBY chicken so we thought we would give it a try. One word "amazing"! Seriously the best fried chicken my wife and I have ever ate (and we travel a lot in the South). It was cooked perfectly. The breading had amazing flavor and was nice and... More

Huge portions, friendly atmosphere, and right across the street from the river. I recommend either the chicken dinner or the chicken strips but my husband likes the pork tenderloin.

You can not beat the price and portion of the chicken strip dinner. It is enough for 2 people unless you do not want to share and save yours for leftovers. Don't forget the dipping sauce, it's a must have!
