    Great take on wings. The wings are huge and full of flavor with an Asian twist.

    Employees were very kind and helpful. I've had better wings at many other places; Crisp did not live up to the hype unfortunately.

    Great korean fried chicken spot. Portions are HUGE! Make sure you are hungry when you come. BYOB which is great except when you get drunk, rowdy patrons taking over the place. Not so great.

    It's all about the Foodie's Choice chicken sandwich. Probably my favorite burger-style chicken sandwich ever.

    All the chickens. And the spicy BBQ is THE SHIT.

    All of the wing flavors are great. Buddha bowls I've tried have a tad bit of sweetness, but do not disappoint.

    The Seoul Sassy fried chicken is undeniably amazing. It's twice-fried in a pressure cooker, and drizzled with a soy, garlic, and ginger marinade and tossed with crunchy scallions. Read more

    I found it overpriced, crowded, and the food wasn't great. It's gone downhill.

    I don't usually associate lakeview with knock out food, but this place is worth a trip to the neighborhood. Get some wings!

    Try all the sauces--they'll let you split an order of wings into two sauces.

    By far, the best Korean wings in Chicago. This place really lives up to their name. Crispy chicken no doubt. Seoul Sassy is the way to go. Really friendly service too.

    Omg, wings with seuol sassy sauce are ridiculous

    If it wasn't for all the 20 something's, hipsters, dirty tables, chicken bones on the floor and a greased up BBQ sauced door handle, this place would be great.

    Best fried chicken in the city. Get the whole chicken with Seoul sassy and take home the extra.

    Korean style fried chicken joint with many tasty sauces to choose from! If you don't feel like chicken try the exceptional Buddha bowl with its multitude of veggies!

    Crowded and small space. There's a long line for ordering and seating. The chicken wings are awesome!

    It's the tasty Korean fried chicken that will keep you coming back to this addictive eatery. The shop's take on traditional bi bim bop, called the Buddha Bowl, is also popular. Read more

    The Korean-style chicken at this cheery storefront is fresh, good quality and comes slathered in three sauces: a sticky barbecue, a hot sauce–laced buffalo and a sesame-soy glaze dubbed “Seoul Sassy." Read more

    The Original Bad Boy Buddha ($8.95) is the medium-sized bowl option, packed with eight vegetables including bean sprouts, carrots and moo, all adding a welcomed crunch. Best to share it with a friend. Read more

    The succulent wings at Crisp are certainly what lures you in the door. But the added treat at the Korean-style fried chicken joint in Lakeview is its vibrant bibimbap, here called Buddha Bowls. Read more

    Crisp is Lakeview's fried chicken haven. Their Korean style chicken, including the jumbo wings, is available in 4 variations: Plain Jane (sauce-less), BBQ, Buffalo and the crowd favorite, Seoul Sassy. Read more

    The wings are huge here, baby birds. The radish is the thin, stringy type......NOT the cubes.
