You may scoff at the (admittedly) pretentious, but the folks at this small neighborhood restaurant really have turned chicken into an art. Art of Chicken only serves two kinds of chicken, and both options are equally delicious, so go with your gut. While the chicken is juicy and delicious on its own, the sauces are what truly make this place a gem. Smother your meal with green and red goop and bask in flavors that would make Guy Fieri proud.

This place is as good as it gets! Let me just start off by talking about the perfect location, which is right off the blue line. The menu was really easy to follow, and not to mention that each featured item complemented each other. I didn't feel overwhelmed and my decision was made within three (3) minutes. I had "El Jefe" along with sweet potatoes and corn on the cob (the original Mexican corn on the cob, make sure to order all the condiments to have the full experience, and don't forget the napkin). The chicken was so juicy and GOOD. The place is really clean and the decoration to the point. We didn't have to wait for our food, and staff was very attentive to our experience. I read comments on the delivery before visiting the place, but none are congruent with my experience.
