Got a kid going through a serious chicken-finger phase? At this buzzed-about takeout and delivery place, chicken (all free-range and organic) is the star—and rightly so. The tiny open kitchen churns out brined, double-battered, deep-fried chicken that’s moist inside and dark brown outside, cooked until it’s crisp. A lonely-looking rotisserie in back serves up a less fatty option for those who want it, and there’s always a veggie-of-the-day among the Southern-inspired sides. The homemade “badass” cookies are not to be missed.
