Rip's in Ladd, IL?

Heard about this restaurant and that it has wonderful fried chicken. When I checked out the website it said they often have lines around the corner with an average one hour wait. Is this really true? I am interested in making a trip of it some sunny day but I don't spend an hour waiting in line for much of anything. Love the menu, there's really just chicken and 4 sides, one of these being a pickle for 50 cents. This statement from the site kind of got me, too : ""Plates of fried batter crumbs and sliced dill pickles are the standard appetizers."
If you have time read the history page on their site, it's fun. While I hope the chicken is great, it's really the experience itself that is most appealing. Well, except for that wait time...

Have you been there? Is it great? And is there really such a long wait?
