MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Gussied up in a happy palette of sunny yellow and sky blue, this 100-seat homage to deep-fried down-home country cooking serves exemplary fried chicken offered in two varieties. The “classic” sports a seasoned, golden-brown skin; “Mama El’s” is skinless and cracker-crusted. Both are available by the piece or as part of whimsically named meals, like the “white meat solo coop.” Step up to the counter and feast your eyes on cast-iron skillets of chicken, as well as sides like creamy mashed potatoes, pimento macaroni and cheese, or grilled corn salad with red peppers and green onion. And then there's pie. More than 12 assortments, baked in-house and available by the slice, whole or blended into a milkshake for a drinkable take on "à la mode."
