While they have a full menu the chicken can't be beat. It is juicy and very well seasoned and a half is enough for two people The sweet potatoes are enormous and done perfectly Plantains are also great They are also expert at fast takeout ,and their delivery people are friendly and polite There is a small charge for takeout

Good, reliable cheap eats. They do a huge takeout business, but also have relaxed seating. Everyone from the cops to the building inspectors to the hedge fund portfolio managers eats here.

I'm not that into American fast food but this was really tasty. Their homemade ice tea was also a winner. Choose the one without sugar!!

Saw this place on the previous night while walking to another local establishment and thought it was popular. We had the wings, one of my boys had nuggets and then there was the mashed potato. Everything that was delivered to the tables looked magnificent and I had plenty of food envy, enough that we will be going back another night... More

I'd just gotten into the city and wanted something quick and easy, not some fancy/expensisve restaurant. My hotel doorman recommended Chirping Chicken and the only frustration was that the menu board was much more expansive than I had expected. Chicken was the headliner, but I went with a New York steak sandwich. It wasn't holy-cow amazing, but certainly quite tasty,... More

This is my basic go-to place when ordering food to be delivered. The chicken is very good, delivery is quick, and the price is right. I get a greek salad and a half chicken with extra pita, every time.

Found this place by mistake while driving by. I have a place similar to this in SoFla. BBQ chicken with yellow rice and beans. They throw in a salad and a drink as a meal. Plenty of food is served, that's why this place is always full. Very filling. Staff is good. Service is good. Order then sit down type.... More

This place is a little gem, has a small seating area but appears to operate mainly as a takeaway. Locals and law enforcement eat here all the time so thats a good sign. Large portions of good food, served quickly and fresh. We stayed at the NYLO so it was close by to call in regular for snacks and dinners.

Great wings and mashed potatoes. It took a few minutes, but it was worth the wait. It's not too expensive either.
