Located off of Airport Road in Chesterfield, Chicken Salad Chick offers a variety of dining options for people with all different food tastes. While centered around the classic chicken salad option, the restaurant also provides options such as egg salad. 

Chicken Salad Chick has a dine-in option that includes both outdoor and indoor seating. They offer a delivery service along with catering. 

On the Chicken Salad Chick website, they advertise their food as being “made fresh daily and served from the heart,” and have customizable options of food to choose from. 

The basic customizable option, The Chick, starts with choosing whether they would like a sandwich or a scoop of the protein on a base. Then customers will choose a side item, cup of soup and a scoop of the protein items, which would be either chicken salad, egg salad or pimento cheese. 

While Chicken Salad Chick fits its name with a large variety of different takes on chicken salad items aside from The Chick, the vegetarian options are offered outside of it as well. The egg salad is served one way while the pimento cheese can be served in its original form or spicier.

The menu is clearly labeled to show what options are vegetarian and gluten-free for customers who may have those specific dietary restrictions. It is also labeled with tiny peppers to demonstrate spicy food.

There is a Little Chicks menu for children 10 years and under that includes dishes such as mac ‘n cheese and pb&j Uncrustables. 

All meals are served with a cookie and a pickle spear, meals that include scoops also come with crackers. 

This location is unique since it has a drive-thru. The drive-thru offers quick service since you can order ahead through the app or order when you arrive.
