“succulent fried chicken”

We believe that you should feel good about your food—where it comes from, how it’s prepared, how it is served and by whom. So when you eat our chicken, our sides and desserts, we hope you’ll spend some time thinking about the ideas behind every bite.Awesome ingredients. We serve only humanely raised, antibiotic free chickens from Miller Amish Farms in Indiana. Our trained chefs start and finish with whole chickens, not processed or frozen chicken parts. We butcher the chicken right here in our kitchen, brine and batter it, and fry it in non-GMO, trans-fat-free canola oil. You’ll probably notice that the chicken we serve you – with the exception of the drumsticks – is boneless. That might strike you as weird. We thought so too. But after countless taste tests, we found that our chicken was even tastier that way. Plus, now we get to use the bones for other great stuff – like golden chicken stock that we use in delicious soup specials and our smashed potato gravy. And we don't stop at awesome chicken. From the cheese in our pimento mac ‘n cheese, to the toffee in our cookies, to the cornmeal in our muffins, to the honey in our butter, we responsibly source ingredients from small farmers and like-minded, local businesses that share our values. Does it cost more? Yes. Is cooking, serving and eating real food worth it? Absolutely.

The best patios are picnic table-strewn, lazy and loud. Find it all at the Avondale hotspot--plus brunch delicacies like roasted chicken and grits (fried farm egg, honey buffalo sauce).

The juicy, flavorful fried chicken, made with Miller Amish Farms birds, stays true to the restaurant's name: It comes with a big pat of subtly sweet honey butter ($8 for a two-piece serving). Order a fresh-baked, honeycomb-shaped corn muffin on the side and a tall glass of house-made lemonade ($3.50).

HBFC's attention to detail and commitment to sustainability are only part of why it earns a spot on our list. The real reason? A two-piece order of gorgeously golden fried chicken, a side of honey butter and two corn muffins shaped like honeycombs ($8).
