About Luella's Gospel Bird

Things are simple at Luella’s Gospel Bird. The fried chicken offshoot of the larger Luella’s Southern Kitchen has been an important valve in the beating heart of Chicago’s southern food scene since they opened, and locals can’t get enough.

We’re only dealing with fried chicken and sides here, so it should be easy to keep things simple. Bring friends, split all four sides—collards, yams, mac, and biscuits—and eat well. Brunch is a little more loaded up, so grab some chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, beignets, or blueberry brown sugar French toast (or all four) and go nuts. The best part, you ask? Luella’s Gospel Bird is available for catering, so go ahead and book them for your next event.

MUST TRY

Buttermilk Fried Chicken — Throw some collard greens or mac & cheese on the side, and you’re in business
