Inexpensive and good food

nice stop for dinner. I had the chicken and salad which was perfect for me as I wanted something that fit my dietary needs. The only drawback is the restaurant could be cleaner. Food is good and service was fine.

Ok, I've been to Chicken House numerous times and I can swear their fried rice is the BEST I EVER HAD. Being Chinese, I had so many different fried rice in my entire life but the Chicken House Fried Rice is the best. If you are vegetarian, u can order Chauffeur De Vegetable. If u can eat spicy, be sure... More

Visted the Chicken House on August 4th, and that was probably my 20th meal there when it dawned on me that I had not yet written a review. Although the location is quite ordinary, the food certainly is not. Their chicken and pork dishes are absolutely delicious. The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender. I've tried several dishes and have never been... More

I went there twice recently. The atmosphere and service are warm and inviting. They do rotisserie chicken platters with red rice and soupy pinto bean. The chicken is juicy and flavorful and you can get two pieces, a half chicken or whole chicken platter. You can also order family style with various meats and vegetables. The sweet bananas and everything... More

One of the best places in Newark. The food is AMAZING! Best chicken you've ever had in your life. It's small and out of the way, so most people have no idea. Try it!

How may times have I driven by this place and not given it a second look? A reco from a friend, an adventurous mood the other evening and, POW!, we discovered a terrific meal. The roast chicken is sublime. Yuca fires, citrus cilantro onions, sweet plantains all delicious. And such reasonable prices! This place is a find, folks.

Not a great place. Peruvian cooking can be very tasty, but the bad service and over-cooking ruined it for me.

Visited the new Chicken House location in Claymont. (I have not been to their Newark location.) For a Saturday night the place was fairly crowded, and doing a brisk takeout business as well. Previous tenants at this location have not fared well, but I think the Chicken House will be a success. I ordered the 1/2 chicken w/yellow rice &... More

I've visited the Chicken House on several occasions and each time I absolutely enjoyed myself. The chicken is so delicious. One might think, it's just chicken, but it's not. It is so tender, well seasoned and they serve it with this " aji " sauce, which makes it even better. I always get the Jalea, a fried seafood dish...delicious. You... More
