The menu at Chirping Chicken is very long, but it’s easier to navigate than a Midwestern interstate. That’s because you’re at this counter-service spot for the chicken. The charcoal broiled bird, which is consistent across all six locations, tastes like it’s been slow-smoked, and it’s the reason this place should be top of mind when you’re looking for an inexpensive dinner. Get the $11 special that includes a quarter chicken, warm pita, and a side of very good fries.
