The chicken joint brings the Texas-style home cooking that founder Marc Glosserman remembers from his childhood to Midtown. Two types of all-natural chicken are available: classic (skin-on and dredged in seasoned flour) or Mama El’s recipe (skinless and coated in crunchy cracker crumbs). You can order thighs ($4), drumsticks ($2.75) and breasts ($5.50) in either style, but the wings ($2.25) only come in classic and the Texas tenders only come in Mama El’s recipe ($3.25). The restaurant also has a variety of sandwiches ($7.50–$9.50) and salads ($9.75–$11) made with grilled or fried chicken on offer, plus the whole gamut of Southern sides. Think pimento mac and cheese ($3.75 for a regular, $7.75 for a large), creamy cole slaw ($2.75 for a regular, $6.50 for a large) and buttermilk biscuits ($1.25 each). Finish the meal with a slice of the pie of the day—they’re always made from scratch and baked fresh daily ($5.50).
