I LOVE this place. There are healthy options and less healthy options but the chicken is always amazing. Everything here is reasonably priced and I have tried half the menu and I have never been disappointed.The Greek chicken salad is one of my favorite options. The chicken sandwiches and burritos are also delicious as well. You really can't go wrong... More

The chicken is grilled and is great along with ok sides of slightly sweetened cole slaw and potato salad. They also serve grilled ribs and some other things. Quick, friendly service for take out and free delivery. The eat-in ambiance is a bit like a McDonald's.

Eaten their food many times and always good. The grilled strips, ribs, Greek salads, wings (not too spicy - not that there's anything wrong with that - and NOT slathered in disgusting sauce).

I have been going to Chirping chicken for years. When I was a kid I loved the chicken and now I still love the chicken and the good prices. The menu is also surprisingly extensive. I go here for lunch a lot and it is cheaper than other places on the upper west side. The staff are very friendly!

Simple menu, cheap prices, good food. West coasters:this reminds me of El Pollo Loco or California Chicken Cafes rotisserie/grilled chicken. Good for a lunch stop!

Chiping Chicken has been an Upper West Side staple since before most of us moved to the UWS. One night, years ago, I was in their little place and the gregarious owner talked about his business philosophy - sell lots of chicken and ribs. Pretty obvious, but the details were fascinating. His objective was to remove any obstacle that might... More

Location is really nice, but service is poor and the food is average at best. Low value for the money, and a lot of better options for this price point in walking distance.

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.
