Get the chicken

I like the chicken kebobs or the charcoal chicken. I normally get rice or salad as the side. I have tried other menu items and many are OK but most wouldn't standout when I'm hungry and trying to decide what to eat. The chicken kebobs with rice are one of my goes to's even though I do add more... read more

Had a great lunch, the chicken was offered either white or dark, The rice was very tasty, and the salads where very good, The staff was efficient with the orders and the service was very good. A good place for lunch or dinner, small but good.

I absolutely love this restaurant. The food is always amazing and cooked to perfection. They give you a lot of food so expect to take home doggie bags. The prices on food are a really good deal for the amount you get. The service here is very good. Definitely give this place a try.

Ate at the Chicken House for the first time. Tried the rotisserie chicken and the beef with fries[Loma saltoda]. Good moist chicken with flavorful sauce; beef a little overcooked but tasty. Calamari not recomended- just ok. Flan a must. The server, Gustavo, very patiently explained the dishes and made good recommendations. Do try the fried sweet plantains.Prices are just a... More

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
