Big City Chicken is a counter-service stall buried about halfway down the Navy Pier food court.  It has only three things on the menu: chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders, and waffle fries. You can dress your sandwich up with BBQ sauce, or a combination of buffalo and blue cheese mayo, but that probably won’t hide the dryness of the chicken. Coupled with a smooshed bun and surprisingly crispy seasoned waffle fries, a meal here is like a slightly better middle school lunch. And if it got you through fifth period math back then, it can get you through a day at Navy Pier now.
