Fried chicken, comfort eats & Tiki sips
Barbecue · $
The team behind Highland Kitchen spun off this Inman Square concept, Americana cooking that centers their famous fried chicken (a longstanding Monday-night special at Kitchen), now available as a whole bird or in selected parts, and rounds it out with barbecue plates, Southern-style sides and a creative cocktail program that reflects the eatery's Tiki-inspired interior design.

As someone from the south, fried chicken and biscuits is pretty much a staple for me and is something I miss dearly up here. For the fried chicken, it was delicious. The skin and batter was extra crispy and well seasoned. The meat was moist and steaming hot, as it is cooked to order. Be careful eating it because it is piping hot and the hot oil might drip on your fingers. For the biscuit, it was a miss for me. It tasted like white bread with a biscuit texture. It was bland and I had to smother it with the honey butter that comes with it. Tip: ask for extra honey butter since you don't get much. I had the coleslaw for the side and it was well worth it if you want something refreshing in between your chicken. I would go here again for the chicken! Other than that, I recommend going on weekdays as you'll be waiting well over an hour on Friday and Saturday nights.

I had the chicken sandwich and it was great. Messy to eat, so once you pick it up, you need to keep eating. My husband had the 3piece and gumbo. He said gumbo was good and a bit of heat. The dark meat was good but breats was a little dry. Otherwise, great spot and definitely more things we want to try.
