Harold Pierce, an African-American Chicago entrepreneur, founded Harold’s Chicken in 1950. He started off by running a small restaurant with his wife, Hilda, on 39th Street. The name of the restaurant was H&H, and they specialized in dumplings and chicken feet. Gene Rosen, a friend who owned a poultry shop near by sold chicken to Pierce. The character of Harold’s developed primarily out of necessity, because the larger fast food chains tended to avoid African-American neighborhoods. In turn, Chicago’s legal and social obstacles to black-owned businesses at the time prevented Harold’s from expanding into downtown or the North Side.
My family and I needed a spot for lunch close to our hotel, and we spotted Harold’s Bar and Grill. It’s small but nice. The decor is primarily white, nicely decorated, and looks very clean. The wait staff was very professional and courteous. I have dietary limitations, and I am unable to eat food containing dairy or wheat. The wait staff was very helpful in making sure my order was free of dairy and gluten. I chose the grilled chicken salad which was very good. If I lived in the area I would definitely come back and enjoy more meals at Harold’s Bar and Grill. I recommend you give them a try.
Good service.. bar bartender Chris is great...catfish fired chicken perfectly friend with Harold's. 55th south side Harold's sauce is on deck too so its official. Camp creek again has a worthwhile spot to check out. Very nice seating, marble crystal bar, small but upscale. Near LA fitness...across from jasons deli DSW. Perfect parking
First time visiting I live the ambience the service was superb...I also liked how the seating area and tables were wiped down after each patron left. There will be a repeat visit💖💜💖💜💖💜
