Recent Eats: Table 28, Petit & Keet, El Palenque, & Buffalo Grill

Recent Eats: Table 28, Petit & Keet, El Palenque, & Buffalo Grill

Thoughts on my recent dining out experiences around Little Rock… My second visit to the new-ish Petit & Keet was as impressive as the first. It was also nice to see a full house on a Thursday evening as our table of four was delighted by dishes […]

Petit Fours at Blue Cake Company are My New Addiction

Petit Fours at Blue Cake Company are My New Addiction

Yes, sometimes distance, or lack there of, does make the heart grow fonder. Thanks to a recent move, I know live within minutes of Blue Cake Company. Truth be told, before a few months ago, I’d never even walked into the bakery. Now I can’t […]

15 Favorite Places for Fried Chicken in Little Rock

15 Favorite Places for Fried Chicken in Little Rock

We were talking fried chicken on the blog last week because of National Fried Chicken Day, so I posted this question on Facebook: What is your favorite fried chicken in Little Rock? We had a great response, so I figured it was a good time to highlight 15 places mentioned on the thread, some of which I’ve tried, and others, I have not. Just know, I didn’t include Popeye’s, a popular chain favorite. If there are any major omissions, please leave them in the comment box below.

Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich at Petit & Keet
I had a bite of this sandwich a few weeks ago, and although it really isn’t a traditional hot chicken sandwich, it is quite tasty and the pimento cheese is a nice touch.

Maddie’s Place

Buttermilk Fried Chicken Breast w/ Mac & Cheese, & Slow Cooked Greens at Maddie’s Place
This fried chicken platter probably got the most votes on the thread, and for good reason, as it’s a wonderful dish filled with all sorts of flavors. The greens are a little sweeter than I prefer, but a bite of them mixed with the mac & cheese and chicken is quite delightful.

Fried Chicken at Homer’s

Fried Chicken Tenders at Franke’s Cafeteria
This is my personal favorite fried chicken in Little Rock. Call me crazy, but it just doesn’t get much better than one of these bad boys dipped in the honey mustard.

Fried Chicken at David Family Kitchen

Hot Chicken Sandwich w/ Pickles and Cole Slaw at South on Main
Without question one of the best sandwiches in town. The hot chicken sandwich at South on Main is this perfect combo of greasy and spicy, all cooled down by the accompanying cole slaw, which I also adore.

Fried Chicken at The Kitchen Express

Fried Chicken at Chester’s (inside Edwards Food Giant)
This is just plain ol’ stick-to-your-ribs fried chicken. It’s no-frills and greasy, but in a good way, and is super affordable.

Fried Chicken at Lazy Pete’s

Hot Chicken Sandwich at Big Orange

Capital Bar and Grill

Fried Chicken w/ Potato Salad and Green Beans at Capital Bar and Grill
This is only available on Wednesdays as a lunch Special, so plan accordingly. Well seasoned and super crispy, this fried chicken is one of the more iconic dishes in Little Rock.

Fried Chicken at Bobby’s Country Cookin’

Fried Chicken Tenders at JoJo’s Bar-B-Q

Fried Chicken at K Hall and Sons
I’ve never had the fried chicken at K Hall, but I’ve heard good things, and if it’s anything like their fried pork chop or catfish, then it will be stellar. I’m guessing it is.


Fried Chicken at Gus’s
While I was never a fan of the fried chicken at the WLR location, the product at Gus’s downtown is a lot better. This chicken is a little spicier than your typical fried chicken, but certainly not in an overwhelming way.

Restaurant Review: K Hall & Sons Produce

Guest Post, By Woo Pig Foodie While I do enjoy a nice tasting menu at a white tablecloth restaurant, I am happiest eating good food from good people over the hood of my car. I like places that make me feel at home, places where […]

Mama’s Gyros Grill in Sherwood is Worth the Drive

Mama’s Gyros Grill in Sherwood is Worth the Drive

I won’t beat around the bush. I liked Mama’s Gyro Grill. I liked it before I even entered the restaurant, thanks to a poster of a beautiful model holding a gyro which hangs in the window. And I certainly liked the place after I tried to the […]
