Harold's Chicken Shack


"We are the Fried Chicken King!"

Harold's Chicken shack was founded in 1950 by Harold Pierce, a black entrepreneur on Chicago's south side. Since then, Harold's has expanded to include the west side, the north side, Normal Illinois and a few other major cities across the U.S. 

All of the chicken and fish served at Harold's Chicken Shack is made to order as Harold Pierce originally intended, and is served with our famous Harold's mild or hot sauce. Stop by and try THE BEST soul food in Chicago!

"The food was incredible. Piping hot and cooked to perfection. The chicken and side were not greasy and had the best taste. We were having a going away party for a team member at my son's barbershop. Let me tell you the guys loved every crumb!"

"Love this place and I always get the same wing dinner. Like most places like these no matter how early you call it in, they don't drop it in the grease until you get there-even funnier this one had "DONT MAKE NOW" on the receipt lol. No biggie though, we didn't mind waiting and it didn't take too long. The strawberry lemonade was on point as always!"
