They do chicken right!

This place is 20-25 minutes from our home, but worth the drive. Their chicken chunks tender and juicy, with a nice breaded crunch. Wife luvs their "George N Eddie." Good jo-jo's (fries), onion rings and tasty cole slaw. While we've never ordered breakfast, they have many morning items as well.

I'm not typically thrilled with chicken joints; lets face it, they are all the same. So I felt until our trip to CNS. Serving size is great and cost is average. Try all the sauces and definitely get the chicken chunks.

Chicken chunks are always a big hit at any get together. Very tender & juicy & very good size. Service is quick & friendly!! Can call ahead for large party orders. Try it-you will love it!!

Use Chicken-N-Spice for catering our parties. We are always asked, where did you get the chicken. Taste just as good reheated the next day.

This place has been around Joliet for many years all the locals like to eat chicken and potato wedges from this restaurant. It's basically a town legend and the king of chicken. Make sure when you go here you order chicken chunks and potato wedges. It's basically like a Popeyes or Church's Chicken just a different name and way better... More

I saw this place on one of those "BEST OF" shows so I decided to make the long drive to check it out. the staff were very friendly but the food was just not the great. The chicken chunks were greasy and the potato wedges were just not that good. Sorry, the place was packed and so someone must love... More

We came into town to visit the Rialto when we stumbled upon this place. Turns out it was a real good find too!! The chicken chunks are massive and you get a lot of food for a great price! The fried macaroni bites were delicious!! The staff was super friendly, helpful and the place was clean! If you ever find... More

The best chicken breast chunks ever! The choice of dipping sauces is amazing, the sweet n sour is my fav! Great family meal deals and we like to order for parties too! Yes, the dining room needs a make over. But the chicken makes up for it!

Great chicken chunks! Very tasty and the jojos (potato wedges) are delicious also. With a wide variety of side dishes, there's something for everyone!
