Winner, Chicken Dinner!

There are two words almost universally loved by the non-vegetarian crowd: Fried chicken.

Growing up in a tree-lined hood just outside Chicago, this crispy goodness was a favorite dish. A recipe carried over thousands of miles by our southern-born grandparents, who migrated north in the 60s, it was an undeniably good treat.

The smell alone sent most of our family members into a euphoric state that could last hours – or an entire weekend, if Grandma cooked up an especially large batch.

All grown up now, most of our friends still appreciate the occasional greasy love of “yard bird” done right. So, it’s with sheer delight we share with you our local Dallas favorite – Chicago’s Chicken Coop!

I mean look at this! You likely need a napkin after viewing these wings, right? Oh and let’s talk about the fries. Generous portions drenched in the delicious special mild sauce, they’re almost a meal all by themselves.

CCC is conveniently nestled in a row of shops along Frankford Road, just off the George Bush Turnpike. Our first visit was a nice surprise. You wouldn’t expect to walk in and find a gorgeous stonewalled counter, sparkling chandeliers and gallery-quality art on the walls of a chicken joint, but that’s what you’ll get.

Let us know if you go grab some of this fried goodness!

Know Before You Go:

+Check out the menu online and put some thought into what you want to order.

+Our favorite is the 12 piece wing with their signature Coop Seasoning and drizzled with mild sauce. The sauce is the perfect blend of sweet and tangy! Ask for it on the side, if you’d prefer.

+Grown-ups and littles love the meaty chicken tenders.

+Save room for dessert! Caramel cake, red velvet, lemon, cookies and pies are a consistent feature.

    Definitely a mouth-watering teaser, these pics. I immediately thought of the big H in our home town, Chicago; you know the king of chicken wings?

    These will definitely be on my list of must-have eats when I make my way to Texas. I think I can smell the sauce from here.

      Shawn! They also have a couple suburban Chicago locations. So, it’s possible Coops is an outgrowth of the big H! The sauce is almost drinkable. lol
