(WSIL) -- Carbondale will soon be home to a new place to grab some comfort food. Harold's Chicken is set to open October 1st.
The Chicago-based chain serves up home style favorites, like fried chicken and fish, and even less common foods like fried gizzards.
The new restaurant will sit next to New Kahala on East Grand Avenue in Carbondale. Owner Nick Walker graduated from SIU and says he always wanted to find a way to give back to the area.
Walker says. "I spent may 20 years of my life down here. I came down here when I was 18 years old and I pretty much grew up down here. I have a special niche in my heart for Carbondale. I moved away for a couple of years and then I found my way back."
Walker also says he'll be hiring between 10 and 15 people.
