Beasley's Chicken and Honey!

6:19 PM


This past weekend after church, I went to Beasley's Chicken and Honey with my boyfriend and a good friend of mine. None of us had ever been there before but had a taste for some good southern cooking. Of course as we start to get closer to downtown, we notice that they have some of the streets blocked off for some kind of event. We already knew this meant that navigating the one way streets and finding a park was going to be tiresome, but to our demise, the parking deck was located directly beside the restaurant and there was no charge to park on the weekends! So we excitedly trek our way into the store and they are literally jam packed, yet there was only about a 35 minute wait according to the waitress. So we waited, and to our surprise were seated in about 10 or 15 minutes max.

Their menus were written on the walls (chalkboard painted squares) and everything was a la carte (meaning everything is paid for separately - no refills, no combos). We all ordered their chicken and waffles entree, and they give you the option of white or dark meat - I ordered the white, they both ordered dark. The entree was only $13, and the servings were worth the price. The waffle was perfect, just enough crunch on the outside, but warm and soft on the inside. They drizzled the honey on the chicken flawlessly, not too much, and not too little, it was the perfect touch of flavor! They give you two pieces of chicken on top of your waffle (thigh and a leg if you order dark, breast and wing if you order dark) and they were delicious! Speaking of chicken, if you're a Texas Pete fan, you might want to bring a personal bottle or packet, they only provide Franks Hot Sauce, and Tabasco Sauce. *Sigh*

They have small metal pitchers for syrup and sauces, that I thought were just adorable, I wish I had thought to take pictures while we were there. They serve lemonade, tea, and water in mason jars and have the old fashioned bottles of pop! I personally had the water, but the conclusion from the two of them was that the tea wasn't the southern sweet tea, it was lacking the sweet effect, and the lemonade was extremely tart. Maybe it was just a bad day for the drinks? Either way, in my opinion, the food made up for the disappointing beverages!

I would definitely go back again, it had a "different" vibe, but at the same time, the vibe was a good one.
