Chicken Works & Salad Company
With a name like Chicken Works, it’s pretty obvious what this counter-service spot in Irving Park specializes in. Everything from their smoky broiled whole birds to their salads is great. But though it's only one small part of the menu, don't overlook their chicken noodle soup. Their take on the classic is simple yet delicious— just a balanced combination of flavorful broth, celery, carrots, bowtie pasta, and, of course—chunks of chicken.
