Located at 3361 N Elston Ave Chicago, IL this place received the honor from MSN as the TOP chicken sandwich in Illinois. Check out this description from LoveFood/MSN

One of the main attractions is the Honey Butter Fried Chicken Sandwich. A firm favorite, the sandwich is a simple combination of fried chicken and extremely generous lashings of honey butter in a brioche bun. 

Seriously, look at this:

Yes folks, butter isn't a carb and that is dripping in butter. Amen.

Let's see what the peeps are saying on YELP.

Jhenevie O. - Honey Butter Fried Chicken. Mmm. Mmm. Words can't describe how in love we are with this place. We are OG supporters way back before their remodeling.

Brittany M. - Yummm! So good! Filling but not super greasy so you don't feel overly full. We ordered the OG sandwich and chicken strips basket to share. The sandwich has pickles, slaw, and sauce on it, all went really well together and was delicious.

Matthew P. - The fried chicken is just so juicy and flavorful and when paired with the honey butter and biscuit it's insane.
Love this place!
