Roost is one of our favorite spots in Chicago for fried chicken sandwiches, and we’re happy there’s an outpost in Wrigleyville. It’s a small counter-service operation, and the menu here has the same fantastic fried chicken sandwiches and biscuits that you’ll find in other locations. They have four varieties, including the house style (with pickles, coleslaw, and chipotle ranch) and the sunrise (with egg, bacon, and cheddar). You’ll get a choice of brioche or biscuit, and you should go with a biscuit - unless you get one of each.
