“Best fried chicken anywhere!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

This has to be the best fried chicken any where!!! Charming little simple place Ina small town. With the lines that form every weekend you know it's good. Talk to anyone in Northern Illinois and they will tell you that Ripps is the place to go
