At work we've ALL been talking about the Eagle in OTR. We've actually tried to go twice and get there to be told there is a 45 minute wait. Blergh.
The other popular order was the Fried Chicken Breast Sandwich ($8). If you want fried chicken but don't want to mess with the bone - this is your option. This could totally be split between two people -it's ginormous! It's topped with coleslaw, spicy mayo and pickles. Both people that got this loved it!
I tried a dab of the honey and it did have a kick. The seasoning on the chicken actually had a kick to it as well - so I stuck with that. It's a bit oily (duh) - but tasty for sure. The chicken was very juicy - I'm a sucker for chicken thighs - so I was in heaven with 2 thighs and a leg. I think I'm still in search of my favorite fried chicken - but this was definitely good stuff.
So here's the happy lunch crew - and yes - notice that empty bloody mary glass! ;-)
And then - after fried chicken - what does a birthday girl need?
Holtman's Donuts is right next door and you just can't walk by without going in. I got a couple of donut holes - figuring that wouldn't overload me from my big lunch.
Why Should You Go? Both places are definitely on the "try it out" - the fried chicken is good but the spoonbread from The Eagle is GREAT. And the donuts - DELICIOUS!
