Harold's Chicken has been one of Chicago's number 1 chicken facilities for many years. With several locations the one that I really like this it's the one on the 87th Street. The chicken is always fresh to order and the wait staff a pretty nice people.

ordered a 6pc wing with mild sauce it was good. The one thing I can say is that this location is not shy with the mild sauce. This is the only Harold's I like tbh they been there forever. You can smell the chicken all the way by food4less lol. Majority of the time it's a little crowded but they take care of you really quick.

A Chicago favorite. Unless you call or order online, there will be a wait. Harold's Chicken is known for their wings and sauces. The food is amazing. I recommend it if you visit Chicago!
