    I have a shot of that sign as well-is that place still in business?

    I think it is still in business. I visited it on a Monday, when most restaurants are closed....

    I would hope that the chicken is good. Very simple and to the point

    You know, I just love a good home-style fried chicken! The restaurant looked nice and clean inside.

    When they answer the phone, do they say, "Hello, this is Chicken"?

    good god this sign is still there in 2009? They were closed in 2006 when I shot it.

    I think the name is Johnsons. There is a window neon sign haning in the left hand glass , READING _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ CARRY OUTS

    Roberto, I think it's called "Lothson's Karry-Out", and has been in business since the early 40's, IIRC. I shot the same sign this spring and it appeared to still be a going concern, albeit closed on Sunday morning. The interior was still all together and clean, recently habitated.

    As of Spring 2011, the neon sign is working. Lothson's Karry Out is open every Wednesday through Sunday, from 4:30 until 8:00, with the last order taken at 7:30 or so. They've been doing business since 1949, and they also fry fish. They're at 644 E. Lincoln Hwy., Dekalb, IL. The phone number is 815-756-4303.
