  • The chicken is good, the sides are basic and tasty, and the agua fresca is great in the summer – not too sweet. By only complaint, and it is a meager one, is that the “greens of the day” is always broccoli. Always.

  • Love Chix, love their student prices, love their HH and reverse HH. Lots of food for the $. I like to get a burrito with no rice, it’s HUGE. Their sauces are all really yummy, too. And the sweet potato side.

  • It’s a nice healthy option and very reasonably priced. The only downside is the chicken’s a little bland in my opinion, but then again I’m a much bigger fan of peruvian chicken.

  • I ate here once and thought the food, for the price, was pretty good. Everything tasted fresh – and I love their homemade tea brews!

  • I’m a huge fan of their food! amazing fresh, tasty chicken, great sides (tried the mac n/cheese?) and they have quite possibly the best chicken soup on the planet! And they deliver to CH – for free! The vegetable is usually green beans when I order – agree that they could be a little more creative.

  • NOODLES AND CHEESE. Total must-order item. Also, $10 bottles of wine. Not the greatest wine, but the price is right.

    • The noodles and cheese are SOOOOOOO good. As is the curry sauce. I love this place, as everyone here seems to.

  • Sweet potatoes there are the bomb!

  • It’s probably the best chicken-themed restaurant in all of Washington.

  • Yummy and they deliver too. I’ve ordered in twice and had my food within 30 mins of placing my order. Plus it feels good to eat healthy and tasty food.

  • One of the top five things I miss about living on U St. Soooo delicious.

  • Chix is delish, a steady ready go-to when you can’t think of anything else to order. I’ll also just note that I live right across the alley from them, and they are very good neighbors. It can be hard to share an alley with a restaurant (garbage, deliveries, etc.) but they are invariably considerate, and all-in-all class acts.

  • AMAZING!!! I live around the corner and I have a hard time not going every day!

  • Love love love Chix, I eat here at least twice a week. The food is delish and I love having a healthy take out option in the neighborhood. Lucas and Victoria are great!!

  • I tried it once over 3 years ago and found it bland. But you all have convinced me to give it a 2nd shot.

  • i find it funny that the restaurant didnt make it as a peruvian chicken joint so they changed it to white people chicken and now its popular.

    • smart business.

      It was never a peruvian chicken joint.

      • Actually, there was a Peruvian chicken joint in that space (can’t remember the name), which was the prior tenant before Chix. It lasted less than a year. (I ate there once — and had a grilled steak sandwich that was OK.)

        I’m a regular takeout customer from Chix. Really good sized chickens, nicely seasoned, and not dry. There is a yellow curry sauce that comes on the side that adds some zing. I also enjoy the cubed sweet potatoes as a side. While I admire their “green policy,” it does result in somewhat flimsy takeout containers. Also, on occasions I’ve eaten in the restaurant, I found that the plastic forks typically became deformed halfway through the meal.

          Ah thanks, I thought he meant CHIX used to be a peruvian chicken joint – didn’t realize he was talking about a different owner. (Truthfully, I didn’t know it was peruvian before chix.) Thanks again.

  • Best bargain restaurant in DC. $6.50 lunch menu: 1/4 colombian chicken, black beans & Rice and green of the day (either green beans or broccoli). Avocado dressing is best dipping sauce around. $10 bottles of wine every evening 7-9:30PM.

  • I have never heard of this place, and now I’m definitely going to check it out! Yay, I love when Judging Restaurants gives me new ideas. 🙂

  • The chicken and rice soup is amazing. Taste like its homemade.
