Always the same and I love it

I've been going to this place long before the chicken crossed the road... This is truly a chicken favorite .. I've tried most of the dishes. But my all-time favorite is the chicken Caesar salad simple but delicious.. I would suggest this place to anyone in the area looking for a decent chicken meal... read more

I had gyros plate, very tasty. Hubby went for chicken and was pleased. Salads are good. Efficient and delicious neighborhood eats on a budget.

Chirping Chicken is located very close to where we stay when we are in NYC. It's always busy, but the food is consistently good for lunch or dinner. We often do take out or delivery, but sometimes eat there for a quick lunch. It's definitely a neighborhood favorite.

Very tasty grilled chicken, salad, and sides. Fast service and great value for the portions. The BBQ sauce is a favorite!

I prefer to take out from Chirping Chicken: whole chicken, EXTRA well-done, and with extra red sauce. Yum yum! Very busy spot. Everyone rushing about. Lots of Spanish being spoken.

This was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. We ate in and it is busy, with ringing phones, people coming and going, and couriers picking up to deliver and people picking up. Fun place to people watch and the food was good. Definitely not quiet or fine dining but good value.

We had a good dinner here on a Saturday evening. We were looking for something quick and inexpensive close to our hotel, before heading to a show. The counter service and delivery to our table was super quick. My chicken as well as the side dishes were delicious. My husband had the cutlets, and wouldn't recommend them- they were very... More

After wandering for a while with my best friend on the Upper West, someone suggested we tried the Chirping Chicken. By the time we went there we were starving. I ordered a Greek Souvlaki with pork and my friend a Chicken Sandwich. We devoured our meals in 10 mins. They were exquisite. The pork was so tasty, well cooked and... More

My wife and i loved the grilled chicken salad and order of fries at Chirping Chicken. The freshly made salad was large enough to split with an ample amount of sliced chicken atop, all for $11.95, a real bargain in NYC.

Utterly appalled by the service of this establishment. Ordered delivery to a hotel just 2 blocks from the restaurant with more than an hour lead time, only for it to arrive 2 phone calls and 35 minutes late. The delivery person was unpleasant at best. There is no reason why the service should have been so appalling, and the lack... More

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
