Folks, we just got back from Express Chicken & Ribs at 1319-21 W. Wilson (Wilson and Beacon) and are happy to report that the owner has offered a 10% discount to our readers. Just go in and say you want the "Uptown Update Special" and you will get 10% off your order, excluding specials.
We can report that the food is made fresh and the interior is clean and inviting. The owner, Abbey Olukoya, lives on the southside and commutes to Uptown each day to work. He is also looking to expand into breakfast and is in talks with the powers-that-be to get outdoor seating.
We had the chicken tenderloin (strips) with turnip greens and cole slaw. Yum! Call ahead at 773-275-5760 for carry-out orders or dine in their spacious dining area. Go check it out!
