Robert Stehling already serves fried chicken from morning to night at Hominy Grill, where guests can start the day with a “Charleston Nasty Biscuit,” featuring cheese and sausage gravy, and finish it with a two-piece platter. But at Chick's Fry House, he and executive sous chef Dave Uecke are devoting the entirety of their menu to the Southern-style bird.
Considerably more casual than Hominy Grill, the counter-service Chick's Fry House offers fried chicken baskets, fried chicken salads, fried chicken sandwiches and fried chicken by the piece. For the non-fowl-eating set, the menu includes fried pork chops, fried fish, accompanying vegetables swiped from Hominy Grill's chalkboard and doughnuts.
For dine-in customers, the drinks list features beer and wine, but the restaurant is set up for takeout orders: Among Chick's Fry House's amenities are an ordering app and drive-through window.
Situated in the former Tower Drive-In at 1011 King St., Chick's is open from 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. daily. For more information, visit chicksfryhouse.com.
