Found this place by mistake while driving by. I have a place similar to this in SoFla. BBQ chicken with yellow rice and beans. They throw in a salad and a drink as a meal. Plenty of food is served, that's why this place is always full. Very filling. Staff is good. Service is good. Order then sit down type.... More

This place is a little gem, has a small seating area but appears to operate mainly as a takeaway. Locals and law enforcement eat here all the time so thats a good sign. Large portions of good food, served quickly and fresh. We stayed at the NYLO so it was close by to call in regular for snacks and dinners.

Great wings and mashed potatoes. It took a few minutes, but it was worth the wait. It's not too expensive either.

I ordered from this place for delivery: baby back ribs, salad, sweet potato, pita bread. The flavor of the ribs were actually really good. The food was cold though and they sent nothing for the baked potato. It was a less than average experience. I was looking forward to some great food after seeing the reviews. That just wasn't my...

I LOVE this place. There are healthy options and less healthy options but the chicken is always amazing. Everything here is reasonably priced and I have tried half the menu and I have never been disappointed.The Greek chicken salad is one of my favorite options. The chicken sandwiches and burritos are also delicious as well. You really can't go wrong... More

The chicken is grilled and is great along with ok sides of slightly sweetened cole slaw and potato salad. They also serve grilled ribs and some other things. Quick, friendly service for take out and free delivery. The eat-in ambiance is a bit like a McDonald's.

Eaten their food many times and always good. The grilled strips, ribs, Greek salads, wings (not too spicy - not that there's anything wrong with that - and NOT slathered in disgusting sauce).

I have been going to Chirping chicken for years. When I was a kid I loved the chicken and now I still love the chicken and the good prices. The menu is also surprisingly extensive. I go here for lunch a lot and it is cheaper than other places on the upper west side. The staff are very friendly!

Simple menu, cheap prices, good food. West coasters:this reminds me of El Pollo Loco or California Chicken Cafes rotisserie/grilled chicken. Good for a lunch stop!

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
