  • Krista marie I.Can't go wrong with the O.G. My personal fave. They have a lunch box special on Tues-Fri. Honey butter sandwich and a side for $10 or come on a Wednesday for the 10 for 10 wing special.

  • Jackie TFood was AMAZING. Great attitudes, great music, nice atmosphere

    55555 by Jackie T

  • William Q.Chicken is the star obviously and shine bright like a diamond. Cane sugar sodas are an attraction at least for me.

    55555 by William Q.

  • Jonathan FerreraThe OG is one of the best fried chickens or sandwiches I've ever had. However, it is the best fried chicken sandwich to me.

    55555 by Jonathan Ferrera

  • Chicago TribuneChefs take bite-size pieces of juicy fried chicken and heap it on top of their regular mac with a spicy buffalo sauce added to the mix.

    55555 by Chicago Tribune

  • Ethan A.Get the OG sandwich. Most amazing chicken sandwich you'll ever have. Highly recommend!!

    55555 by Ethan A.

  • Bob D.Good grits. Good Bloody Mary.

    55555 by Bob D.

  • PureWowMaybe you can resist a plate of fried chicken that’s served with little honeycomb-shaped biscuits and a tub of sweet butter to slather on every bite… But we sure can’t.

    55555 by PureWow

  • Amanda C.Taco Tuesday - 2 fried chicken tacos, beer, & tequila shot for $12! Pimento mac is a perfect side or the Greek orzo salad if in season. Make sure to sign up for Sunday Dinner Club's email list too!

  • EaterIt may not serve your momma's fried chicken—with bones, skin, et al—but Honey Butter has been making swaths of Chicagoans feel like kids again when they dip their birds in that honey butter.

  • Mary E9.5 - The standard honey butter fried chicken sandwich on a biscuit, sweet tea, buffalo chicken sandwich, and the overall atmosphere/outdoor seating was out of this world.

    55555 by Mary E

  • Chefs FeedWith thousand island dressing and sauerkraut on a pumpernickel bun, this sandwich is so spot-on that you almost actually think that there's corned beef on it, instead of fried chicken.

    55555 by Chefs Feed

  • Chefs FeedHoney Butter Fried Chicken's sides are phenomenal. Their chicken is juicy and crispy, and the honey butter adds a surprising layer of sweetness.

    55555 by Chefs Feed

  • Michael M.I loved the Buffalo Mac & Cheese. It's a one-dish with pasta on the bottom and crispy bits of chicken and breading on top

    55555 by Michael M.

  • Jillian BurnickasThe Mac and cheese is a must. So good!!

    55555 by Jillian Burnickas

  • J GGet the 4-piece combo. Comes with honey butter and mini cornbread. The kale slaw is excellent and soda fountain is awesome (no sugar free options). Service is incredibly friendly and efficient.

    55555 by J G

  • Monika AChicken is amazing. Even more amazing with the honey butter. If the weather is nice enough, ask to be seated outside. They have a really nice patio (with heaters, for chillier nights).

    55555 by Monika A

  • Winston W.Good but I think it's over-rated, especially considering their prices. Avoid the corn muffins, a ripoff. I like the Buffalo Mac & Cheese.

    33333 by Winston W.

  • Off The Menu mThe Gio-Joe: A fried chicken sandwich with red chili sauce, garlic aioli, and pea tendrils.

    55555 by Off The Menu m

  • ChicagoistAttention chicken lovers: Chicago's best fried chicken joint now offers home delivery Wednesday through Sunday. Top off your night of Netflix with butter slattered fried chicken and mac 'n cheese.

    55555 by Chicagoist

  • Eve B.Got the chicken and kale slaw for carry-out. Good was very good and the service was equally as impressive. Even though it was carry-out, they asked if I'd been there before, made recommendations.

    33333 by Eve B.

    55555 by david D

  • Jeff mVery good and unique fried chicken. Eat it with the butter.

    55555 by Jeff m

  • Bill S.Decent place with a cool vibe. Chicken was fried well with a peppery after taste. Comes with very small corn bread muffins. Over priced.

    55555 by Bill S.

    55555 by Michelle M.

  • David H.Kind of overpriced for how much food you get. Chicken was good, but not $8 for a thigh and a drumstick good.

    33333 by David H.

    33333 by Mike

    55555 by Patrick L.

  • Amy G.What a gem from the Sunday Dinner Club. Unsure what's better -- the crispy brined chicken 'n biscuits or the incredible sides like sweet potato salad and thai green curry creamed corn. Grab a cookie!

    55555 by Amy G.

  • emily piercePut the butter on the chicken!

    33333 by emily pierce

  • Julia P.I'm a brunch lover, but at HBFC, I'd just go with the sandwiches or the actual Fried Chicken! Brunch is good, but the chicken better!!

    55555 by Julia P.

  • Sai KoppakaLoved the honey butter fried chicken sandwich!

    55555 by Sai Koppaka

  • Caitlin W.2-piece chicken, chicken fat gravy mashed potatoes, and collard greens. Succulent, juicy, explosion of flavor honey butter chicken sandwich.

    55555 by Caitlin W.

  • K@te ☤Hipster atmosphere. The chicken was largely boneless, crispy and tasty, there is nothing better than spreading that honey butter over the chicken. Definitely the best chicken I have ever had.

    55555 by K@te ☤

    55555 by Brandon M

  • Rosie C.Great sides too!

    55555 by Rosie C.

  • Jae L.While their chicken is what has top billing, their attention to detail in such things as their pickles and appetizers make their meals truly stand out.

    55555 by Jae L.

  • ChrisGreat fried chicken without bones.

    55555 by Chris

  • Todd C.You know what's good here? The chicken, that's what.

    55555 by Kelly K.

  • K Rese S.Try the Mac n cheese!! Really good! So are the corn muffins!

  • Tamika R.Mac and cheese for your side every time!

    55555 by Tamika R.

  • Sharif N.Everything was perfect. My favorite take on Southern Cuisine in Chicago so far. This place isn't hyped. It is the hype. In the mood to cheat? You're sinfully welcome.

    55555 by Sharif N.

  • Annie L.Fried Chicken is amazing. Dont forget to slap on that delish honey butter! Kale cabbage side

    55555 by Annie L.

  • Cat G.Going to disagree with the other tips here and say skip the sides in favor for extra corn muffins and honey butter on said muffins. A+, would eat again.

    55555 by Cat G.

  • Holly JGet the Mac & cheese and a fountain soda! You won't regret it

    55555 by Holly J

  • Jeremy T.This place is some of the best chicken, and their honey butter is superb!!!!!

    55555 by Jeremy T.

  • Anthony dThe fried chicken was for sure their signature, the Mac and cheese was too rich/ childish. Smashed Potatoes were real potatoes so that's good, gumbo was alright! Tip: Less sides, more chicken!

    33333 by Anthony d

  • Todd G.Possibly the best fried chicken I've ever had. If you're looking for fat-a-licious, you'll be happy you came.

    55555 by Todd G.

  • Tim CHoly hell, they have Boylans and Green River on tap!

    55555 by Tim C

    55555 by Lauren C.

  • Alicia EThe chicks was crispy and the honey butter was a great addition, but the sides are really the star here.

    55555 by Alicia E

  • Ana L.Hands down, the best fried chicken. Try a sweet potato salad and a dump cake it's delish...

    55555 by Ana L.

    55555 by Veronica G.

  • DeLonda D.The chicken was delicious, highly recommended! Don't waste your money or taste buds on the garlic mac and cheese, the goat cheese grits or the PBJ dump cake! Not good at all!

    33333 by DeLonda D.

  • Darrel J.Awesome food. The chef was super cool..

    55555 by Darrel J.

  • Jay W.Oh man. Fantastic. The dirty little secret though? The chicken is just as good, if not better without the honey butter. Be sure to snag some hot sauce on the way out. You're welcome.

    55555 by Jay W.

  • MercedesThe Southern Derby is a great cocktail and the paprika in it makes it a great pairing with the chicken. Oh and don't forget to put the butter on the chicken!

    55555 by Mercedes

    55555 by Adam W.

  • Daniel N.Fantastic fountain sodas are bottomless. Makes sure to get one.

    55555 by Daniel N.

    55555 by Austin A

  • Greg GThat was fantastic. The chicken is amazing, of course, but I was really impressed with the sides of Mac and cheese and the sweet potato salad. I tried the Avondale Ginger Mule cocktail and loved that

    55555 by Greg G

  • Kay D.A whole heap of delicious. Have the Sammie. The Jabanero mayo is something else.
