The best bad fried chicken in Chicago. Fries taste like they were deep-fried in butter. The chicken and gizzards are all crisp, and the bread soaks up the extra oil ending up being extra tasty!

The chicken here is a little over-rated but good nonetheless. The price is right and the service is decent.

Reasons why Harold's Chicken Shack is a 1 star establishment: 1. The staff must hate their lives. The cashier was too busy chewing gum to hear me ask her 3 times what side order she would recommend. Apparently you have to ask for the cole...More

My friends wanted to go here for some good wings. They ate there before so I obliged. The wings were basically breaded fried chicken and not the traditional ones drained in sauce. I don't like breaded chicken. However, they tasted good and you should try...More

I've been to this location three times in the past few months. Service and food keep getting worse and worse. Slow cooks combined with rude customer service. The Groupon is not worth the hassle. Try Gus' Chicken in the West Loop instead, you'll be thankful.
