When you arrive at the restaurant, be assured that the tables and seats are clean and comfy. (Their bathrooms are clean as well. ) Blue Ribbon chicken is a bit salty and crunchy. If you love sauces then your in luck! Blue Ribbon has several sauces for you to try and put on top of your chicken. Their fries are unique -small and thin cut fries.

Excellent. Juicy, crispy, nicely seasoned crust, not too salty. You'll like it! You'll like to eat it there. Nice space, clean restrooms. An oasis in Manhattan, way better than KFC and maybe even Pies & Thighs. Nice crew. Not cheap but nothing you can't afford and worth it.

I've never been to a fried chicken place with different bottles of honey on the table but it surprisingly went well with the chicken here. They have 4 different types of honey on the table for you to dress your order of chicken with that range from sweet to spicy. The fried chicken tenders were nice and crisp. The wildflower honey was a nice sweet dipping sauce for it. The fries were also thin and crispy.

I am shocked this place does not have a better overall rating! I was just here this week with a group of friends and we LOVED it. We had a Korean guy and I'm from the south so we both know our fried chicken, people! Four of us shared one of the family dinners with an order of chicken livers and onions and of course beer! They have a great selection of tall boy Six Point cans as well Boylan soda fountain. Traditionally I'd come here tipsy around 2am but this past week I was sober and it was incredible! haha

I wanted dark meat and great breading, so I ordered a single thigh. Delicious breading (crispy and dripping fat) but the thigh piece had basically no meat on it. It was all fat and bone. Delicious fat, but still just fat. Is this how chickens are bred these days? I feel like I'm missing some key point of cultural information. Or maybe the chickens they buy are mostly just fat.

Delicious fried chicken. A really nice casual sit down. It may be a bit pricey, but no pricier than some other fried chicken joints. It's definitely a treat to come here to eat!

Been here before, and loved the fried chicken in 2013. This time around, got the Royal Tenders and we opted for half dark chicken, at the recommendation of the server. But once it arrived, it was soooo chewy, beyond microwave chicken, pretty much like rubber! ! Absolutely terrible. I would not recommend the dark! The white chicken tenders were good, seasoning was delicious. French Fries were on par with the dark chicken, chewy, and microwaved. Not impressed.

Delicious fried goodness! This restaurant is right nearby a bunch of bars so it's a good place to visit. The environment is bright and clean.
