“Guess this business is not worried about the economy.....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

First of all, our family and friends have gone to this restaurant for many many years. It is a great place for a large group and the food is always outstanding. I don't know exactly what happened this particular Friday night, perhaps everyone was in a scurry to get out of work.....We walked in about 6:40 and we were asked if the food was going to be for take out. When we said No, the young woman behind the counter informed us that we would have to be finished by 7:00 because that is when they closed. I was surprised by her directness, so we left and went across the street to CHOW's for dinner. I later called the owner to let her know and she too agreed that at 7:00 they close and they would not be waiting for anyone. According to her, they are not a "FINE DINING" establishment. OK, that is fine. We weren't going to stay an extra two hours anyway, but we did not want to swallow our food either. Just want everyone out there to know of this....so don't expect to be waited on later in the evening. You will inconvenience them. Guess the ecomony is not hurting Hidden Chicken!

“A Very Good Meal for the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

I always have half a roasted chicken here, which is very, very good. I usually split a whole chicken dinner with a friend after work. There isn't really any "ambience," but if you want a good chicken dinner not at the usual fast food place, this place is very good -- and very inexpensive.

“Awesome green chile chicken pot pies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

Very fresh and tasty pot pies, the asian chicken salad is also great but wish they would not predress the salads. Another sign of the times I guess is the rapid increase in prices on the menu..... worst part about lunch...

“Pretty good lunch spot.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

Grabbed lunch here on the advice of some local friends. I recommend the Green Chile Chicken Pot pie. Be prepared, it's HUGE... might want to plan on sharing with a friend.
