Honey Butter Fried Chicken

Honey Butter Fried Chicken
3361 N Elston Ave, Chicago, IL 60618

Honey Butter Fried Chicken,
Southern food in a Chicago kitchen
Avondale location, with a country side dedication
with fried chicken that gives HBFC its kickin’ reputation

Tender and juicy chicken, crispy and with a crunch,
with its famous honey butter sauce that beats it to a punch
Creamy butter, oozing with a honey flavor
The extra sweetness to the chicken gives it a taste to savor

A side of Pimento Mac and Cheese,
is rich and cheesy with a crumbly bread crumb on top
One bite in and it’ll be hard to stop
And with other classic sides, how will you ever decide?
Like the mashed potatoes,
or corn meal muffins, creamed corn, and more
Topped down with a sweet tea that will make you forget the chicken you came down for

With a philosophy that claims to do things different around here,
one thing to note is that the owners supply employees with a pleasant HBFC career
With perks that include a good income and health benefits
You can save your dollars for a drink at HBFC’s bar, because this staff doesn’t work off of tips

So whenever you might be in the mood,
and craving some good ol’ Southern food
Come on by to Honey Butter Fried Chicken for your fix,
guaranteed to make any city girl or guy feel like they’re eating in the sticks!

    I need this in my life!!! It looks amazing and wow if you don’t make it sound delicious. I always adore the way you frame your pieces, it really celebrates the dish on review.
    What a wonderfully appetising piece of writing!

    I never eat fried chicken anywhere else — why waste chewing effort on chicken which is NOT from honey butter fried chicken? 🙂 and those hexagonal cornbreads — mmmm!
