It does not matte what day of the week or what week I go for lunch here. It is always consistently good and great value. As important is the speed with which they serve people. Some days there are 10 people in line before me and other times there are up to 30. The longest I have had to wait... More

Sometimes you have a favourite place that has been operating for years. My relationship with Chicken For Lunch has been over decades. Amy is the icon of great customer service and customer relationships. She remembers customers by names and orders who have not been there for years. The food is great but it is the service experience which bring customers... More

Be there before noon to avoid the line up. Great food and super fast service, limited selection but hey it's in a food court.

I come here often and the food is always good and a great value. The medium is plenty big and costs under $10. There is always lemon chicken and teriyaki chicken on the menu and the main dish is rotated every day of the week. My favorite is the Korean chicken which is spicy and simply delicious. I think that... More

All of the food are very tasty but be ready to drink alot of water after your meal because of MSG I think and salt. Try to go only once a month because of mentioned above. Extremely friendly owner, Amy..

Chicken for Lunch is amazing! Working downtown I had always heard about this Chicken place that everyone raved about, but how good could it really be? It's just chicken! But it's not just chicken!! There are 5-6 specials a day and 2-3 of those change based on the day of the week. The dishes are always served with some fried... More

Fast food kiosk in a dwntwn food fair. .... but the location is the only thing that is ordinary about this place. The owner is your server and she is a diamond in the rough. Humungus portions, reasonably priced meals and friendly service. Long line ups but worth the short wait. Breakfast, brunch and lunch. 5 STARS

Don't go on Friday at 12:00 -- the line up is way too long. Probably avoid every day at 12:00 -- try to be early or go a little later. Its a cash only business and if you aren't sure what to get, let Amy choose for you (she will quiz you and then pick something good). If you go... More

This is my all time favourite for food court style lunches. No one can touch Amy and her menu, and she will remember you forever (her memory is legendary). Great food, well prepared, and at a great price. I LOVE the Hot'n'Dry Chicken!! Just awesome!

Don't be discouraged by the long lunch time line, it moves quickly. Chicken is very good, but can be a touch greasy (this is not diet food) and the sauces are standard fare. Service is really friendly and the elastic band to hold the over-stuffed container is a nice touch.
