This is teh place for a cheap meal that tastes extra good! I get 1/4 chicken with rice and BBQ for 4.01! Now that is a deal. Leg, thigh, wing for that price... r u kidding! They are very nice, they grill teh chiecken and it is without a doubt yuppie free! a special bonus..( The skin-on grilled factor keeps them away!

“Great Chicken, Great Price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2004

If you want a nice, fancy piece of fat-free chicken with a nice, fancy name in a nice, fancy part of town... go somewhere else!
If you want a big, juicy, tasty bird with all the fixin's for an unbeatable price in the armpit of Corporate America (i.e. the South-East Loop), then Chicken Planet is by far the place to go!
I go to this restaurant once every couple of weeks and I enjoy my meal each time. The meat is tender, not dry, with a really great grilled flavor. The barbeque sauce is tangy without being too sweet and the sides - while average - are satisfying, too!
The skin is left on the chicken, so if you're looking for something low-fat, you're in the wrong place. But this is a carb-counters paradise! That is, aside from the pita that comes with each meal. Don't tell my wife, but that pita is so good that I eat it anyway!
The atmosphere isn't so great, but then, if you were going to Chicken Planet for atmosphere, it'd be called "Atmosphere Planet", wouldn't it? They do one thing and they do it better than anyone in the Loop.... CHICKEN!
Don't be afraid to get a little greasy. Just dig in with both hands and eat up! Don't worry, they give you a wet-nap and plenty of napkins for cleanup!
Lastly, the proprieter is a very friendly person. We have a nice (yet short) chat each time I go in. He's even started remembering my favorite meal:

Half chicken, white
Cole Slaw
Barbeque sauce

.... to go! :)
