I have always looked forward to eating at Champion Chicken, as this was the go-to restaurant when I lived near here, and it is still my parents' go-to place. As such, I looked forward to returning here and diving into their lake perch dinner. Before we arrived, my dad warned the lake perch has been dry and he hasn't ordered... More

It takes a truly bad experience to reevaluate a place we have been eating at for more than thirty years. A comfort level builds up over the years and the things which would bother you at another place did not bother us here, after all this was one of our regular places to eat. Monday night, the Packers are playing... More

The menu has a wide selection of foods, not just chicken. Our choices were very good but it was very crowded on that Friday nite and service was extremely slow.

Firstly, the waitress was very detached and only checked on us the bare minimum. She was unfriendly and unengaged. As for the other aspects of service, the food took an unreasonably long time to be brought out and drinks weren't replenished quickly. Next, the food was a mixed bag. The standout items were the chicken, ribs, and fried eggplant. The... More

We went here on Valentine's Day after hearing about it for several years from various friends. I had a bacon wrapped tenderloin. I asked for medium, but it was more like well done. Dry and not really flavorful. The chicken I tasted off my family's plate tasted much better. The salad was okay. I will go back and have chicken... More

Champion Chicken is, ironically enough, not really known for it's chicken. At least not from the people I have asked about it. Instead, every time I go there with my friends, we always get the pizza. It is the best stuff around and it tastes so good. Pros - + Serves ice-cream - I love ice-cream, and they serve it.... More
