Help Support Coco's Famous Deep Fried Lobster

Coco’s Famous Deep Fried Lobster is a black owned, family business serving soul food in the Chicago downtown area for over 14 years. 

On May 30, 2020, Coco’s Famous Deep Fried Lobster was vandalized and looted. Our restaurant is between a liquor store and pawn shop that were also looted.

Due to COVID-19, we had been temporarily closed since March 17, 2020 and were planning on reopening along with the rest of Chicago’s restaurants.

However, because of the vandalism, the family is unable to recover and reopen as previously planned. The landlord is demanding that rent still be paid.

We are asking for your support. Donations will cover repair damage, and help cover the cost of rent.

We thank you and appreciate you during this trying time for our businesses, families and our City as a whole.

We plan to reopen in 2 weeks offering takeout and delivery service. We look forward to opening and serving our customers.

Thank you,

The Coco’s Famous Deep Fried Lobster Family 

426 S Clark St, Chicago, IL 60605
