Chicago added a great new fried chicken joint to Navy Pier. Get it on a sandwich or eat it off the bone with crispy French fries and a pop.

An unexpected treat in the heart of Navy Pier serving fresh fried chicken. Navy Pier is usually frequented by tourists, and they have done a really great job trying to bring in restaurants that would attract more of the local Chicagoans. This is one of those places. 

The chicken itself was very moist for being white meat, and the batter was nice and crispy. The piece meals are made to order, so expect to wait between 15-20 min. Overall, the taste of the chicken was great, but the fries were pretty soggy for having to wait 15 min, and the a larger pickle would have been nice rather than a little chip.
