Originally founded in London in 2012, the Chicken and Farm Shop expanded to the US and the Chicago location is well-known and loved for serving up rotisserie cooked and fried chicken, locally sourced from a free-range farm. Enjoy your fried chicken by the half or quarter, try the wings, or order the best fried chicken sandwich you’ll ever eat. Complete the comfort food experience by adding on some southern-inspired sides like collard greens, mac n cheese, and cornbread.
You’ll find plenty of comfort at WhirlyBall, too! In addition to pizza and gourmet burgers, be sure to check out our fried pickles, chicken wings, and create your own mac n cheese from a variety of options and toppings!
