My family and I visited this restaurant after attending the auto show earlier this week. We were looking for somewhere different to go as we were not in the mood for the same old restaurants like Applebee's or Chili's. We discovered this place while driving...More

Visited for lunch on weekday. Hardly any customers. Even so, service was slow. Food was very salty, nothing special. Cheese grits merely had pieces of cheese added at last minute. Desert tasted store bought. Waitress did not clear table of dirty dishes. Chicken was not...More

Outstanding staff and food that we enjoyed while on vacation. It was crowded with locals, so we knew it was a good choice! You'll have a hard time choosing between the chicken and waffles and the soul food menu. Will return whenever we're in Chicago.

The chicken and waffles here may not be the most photogenic but the taste certainly makes up for it! Servers are so friendly here and everyone is neighborly and welcoming. I had Tonya's Choice- three wings smothered in gravy and a waffle. I also got...More

We came here to get some soul food. I ordered fried chicken thighs, greens, and a waffle. It was fresh and flavorful. We were greeted promptly and our server was delightful. The only thing is that it took a little while longer to get the...More

i love fried chicken and waffles! I've had some of the best in Harlem and LA and now in Chicago. My take on Chicago's Home is the chicken is very good - crispy on the outside and still very moist on the inside. The waffle...More

Elegant Southern Soul Food restaurant. This place is great for taking someone out on a date, the family or just wanting someplace nice, clean and affordable to sit and eat. I recommend several of my family members to check this place out. THE FOOD IS GREAT!!!!! While I was there Jessie Jackson was having lunch outside. Apparently celebrities have been finding this place. What a treat!!! Hopefully next time I'm visiting I'll see some more famous people. The first time I was there it was a bus load of Swedish people eating and it seemed like they didn't want to leave, cause no sooner then they were finished with there food they ordered more. Watching the reactions of these people eating and enjoying there food made my want to try it even more. I was not disappointed.
