Nice small restaurant with chickens. Good prices. Very popular in Herford. Inside looks like in 80's but its clean. Perfect chicken. Try it.

Spent many years in Herford and visit 2-3 times a year. This is always my first stop. A fast food takeaway restaurant serving grilled chicken, burgers, bratties etc. The queues throughout the day show how popular the place is. Service is friendly and fast, prices are cheap. There is an indoor seating area that whilst small is comfortable and nice... More

Best fast food in Herford like fries, sausages and hamburgers. It is fast and yummy and you can sit inside or take away.

Does what it says on the tin... It serves rotisserie chicken... and its stunning. There is always a queue .... but the service is super fast and friendly... and it means the chicken is always hot.

Bought half a chicken - dry as anything! The currywurst was the worst I have ever eaten. The sauce was thick and tasted more tomato than curry. No curry powder sprinkled on top either. I won't be coming here again.

The perpetual queque for the takeaway spit roast chicken tells its own story - quick service and addictive chicken which feeds hungry teenagers a the drop of a hat!

We've lived in Herford for over 30 years. Have traveled far and wide, but haven't found a simple roasted chicken any better. You buy them in half a chicken. Schalk's has other stuff, like the typical curry-ketchup bratwurst, but you can get those anywhere. The chicken is what shines. At busy times be prepared to wait a while, and if... More

Visited here for a quick dinner, having eaten in sit down restaurants for the previous few nights. Everything a decent Schnelli should be; excellent rotisserie chicken, chips and bratwurst among other things. A good choice and plenty of sauces also to choose from, all for a decent price.
