Evanston Chicken Shack is a great restaurant for cheap eats in Evanston.

Regulars at this roadside dive know to call in their orders ahead of time so they don’t have to drool for 20-plus minutes waiting for their fresh-from-the-fryer, juicy birds. You’ll find a few tables next to the pop machines, but this is mostly a takeout joint that caters to a steady stream of NU students and fried-chicken fanatics who go bonkers for the slightly peppery, battered chicken dinners, complete with fries, coleslaw and bread for sopping the grease.
