My only complaint about chicken shack is the drowning of barbecue sauce all over my chicken and fries. Not too spicy and not too sweet, but my next visit I will be adding the sauce on the side! Chicken shack definitely surpassed my expectations, which...More

This place is excellent. Delicious food. Okra is perfect. Chicken, delicious. You may need to wait but that's because they are cooking to order.

Pretty broad menu - great variety though it is a little overwhelming to start. Had chicken tenders and fries chicken breasts. Fries were good but the quality of the check own was not special. Not hard to eat but not creating a craving.

We always order a party pan for gatherings. It is hands down THE BEST Fried chicken on the north side of Chicago /suburbs.

I am meat lover girly and i love great food. Chicken Shack is is the BEST fast food restaurant in Evanston. My favorite is definitely the fried chicken with french fries, so delicious and finger licking. The staff are very nice and friendly too.

Moved to Evanston from the South, so was a bit skeptical of the fried chicken but it's some of the best I've had anywhere. My wife's chicken tenders were also good, but I'd definitely recommend the breast and leg combo. Biscuit and fries were also...More

Best to call ahead otherwise you will wait about 20 minutes or so once you place your order. Not many places to sit and eat in the restaurant. A few tables and chairs and most people get their orders to go. Chicken is great. Cooked...More
