|★ I have been there only once and decided not to go there again because you have to specifically ask for Halal sandwich which they only have one selection. I felt really uncomfortable ordering because not every item is halal. Lady who took my order asked me specifically if I need a halal sandwich.|
I hope they are not doing a mix and match. I was visiting from a different state and my comment is primarily based on my experience.

|★★★★ Great chicken, kids love it. Been to a few other places that serve halal fried chicken, no one does it like KFC!! Excellent, always our first stop (and last-we take to go!) in Chicago!!|
|★★★★★ I am so satisfied that there is a halal KFC in chicago and that is all i would say...its a blessing for halal fried chicken lovers....Love this place!|
|★★★★ I will disagree with Afzal on this one, I had the spicy chicken breast piece with 2 sides and I must say it was absolutely delicious, just like the commercial says it was finger lickin good. Its fried chicken so anyone who will enter knows its unhealthy but tasty :) Also they staff were very honest about what was halal and not on the menu.|
|★★ KFC is right up there with Taco Bell as fast food trash. It takes unhealthy to a new level. I found chicken bone fragments in my first sandwich. The manager was pretty defensive and didn't want to replace it. Reluctantly, she made a replacement. Surprise! Surprise! More bone! Nothing tasted fresh and everything was junk. You'll have to ask the staff which items on the menu are halal.|
|★★★★★ Really awesome Food. Part of the menu is Zabihah and staff was very honest and helpful in mentioning that. we tried most of the zabihah menu and everything was really good. Spicy chicken and Halal Sandwich were awesome. |
would strongly recommend if interested in Zabihah Fast food.
|★★★ They do have a zabiha certification which is right on the wall next to the cashier. But not all the chicken is zabihah they have a specific menu for the zabiha food you must tell the cashier you want to order only zabiha meat. Some of the casheirs will ask if they recogize that you are Muslim, but that is really your responsibility if you want to have a zabiha meal. |
|★★★★★ Alhamdullilah, a Halal KFC. The spicy chicken was very good!! |
|★★★★★ Dude its zabihah KFC, enough said|
|★★★ [No review submitted]|
|★★★ Got verbal assurance from the staff that the chicken was halaal, but not too sure I'd go there again, as the chicken tasted old, and so did the biscuits. If you're looking for not-so-fresh food at a low price, this is the place!|
|NR Rumor has it that this is not halal:|
Any verifications would be appreciated.
|★★★ Great finally having Halal KFC. Not everything is zabiha but the staff is very helpful and lets you know what is and what isn't. Chicken was good but did not taste very fresh|
|★★★★★ Their food is good but sometimes if you go there late at night their chicken might not be as fresh as you would like it to be. |
|★★ I was thinking KFC will be like Karachi's KFCs but it was not.Also,not every thing is halal there.Just one entree was hahal(as mentioned by the staff).The place wasn't clean. Not recommended.|
|★ I think the Chicken, lamb, and the beef might be zabihah halal. But there food handleing would make it harm. they might use the same utensils.|
|★★★★ Salam fellow muslim brother and sister's. i went to the new kfc two times since it opened the first time i tried there bufffloa chicken sandwhich it was pretty good except the sandwhich didnt smell good. and second time i tried there 3 piece chicken it was good fsh just cooked. not all stuff is hala ask them about it beforing ordeing. over all it was good the staff was good too.|
