the 1/2 chicken portion was not a full half chicken and the 1/4 chicken portion was also on the stingy side. I think the roasted chicken that you get from some grocery stores is more flavorful. Some of the sides are ok but overall nothing is seasoned - it's very bland overall. Given the amt of other amazing options in... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a local NYC native. We were very happy to get away from the expensive restaurants of Time Square and have GOOD expensive food. I loved the chicken and my wife loved her baby-back ribs. I we both were very full and had to stroll Central Park. I would recommend it to anyone for easy... More

Lunch time!! I was curious about Chirping chicken. The place is unpretentious, clean, nice and friendly staff. The chicken marinated to perfection, good flavor and clean. They offered more options like baby ribs, wings, fingers, giro, sandwiches, salads, desert and more. This place is good for a quick bite - Good option when you on a budget!

I would say closer to a 3.5 stars, but I rounded up. I visited the Upper East locations and I have to say that I like this location more in every way. The setting and organization was a lot nicer in my opinion. Lots of seating there. Décor is nice as well. The wooden tables and chairs go well with... More

This place is very popular and I can see why. It's cheap and the servings are big. It's the first restaurant I have been to that had simple salads not covered in marinade. Child friendly with high chairs. I would go again.

Nothing exceptional, but a good option if you're looking for something healthy and relatively quick. Not a very friendly staff, they're more interested in the soccer games on the TV's than the service.

Good, no frills, chicken dinners. Always busy and the delivery guys were flat out, we saw them everywhere (they even delivered to our hotel, although not someone in our hotel).

Had the chicken sandwich and fries filled a separate plate, no drink, total was $12 something. Fries were good, sandwich was a large pita with ziki sauce and was great. A lot of food for the price.

Went for lunch. The chicken was good so the rice and beans. But too much noise of the waiter talking over his cellular, drink was not serve only upon reminder and request, the cashier was somewhat elsewhere. The shawarma was outstanding but came with French fries though we asked only for salad. Can do better, no reason why not!
