Beasley's Chicken + Honey is one of those places that is always a safe bet. That's not to say it's ordinary. It's definitly not ordinary.
The eats are always fresh and delicious.
Their focus is fried chicken with plenty of Southern sides that are seasonal. One thing you should know when visiting Beasley's is that the menu is on boards on the wall straight in front of you when you walk in.
To the left is another board above the bar which features all the drink options as well as the 3 or so dessert options available at any given time. There are no paper menus that will be handed to you, so typically what I do is get seated and walk over to look at all my options on the boards. It's not a big place but I usually like to sit by the window so it's not so easy to see everything from there.
For anyone as indecisive as me when it comes to ordering food..... the beauty here is you can pretty much create your own menagerie of eats. Now their popular chicken and waffles dish could be a meal on its own. However, I always like to get an extra side and or dessert too.
A great option is their Veg Plate which runs a bit under $10 and for that you choose 3 sides. I must say I rarely get vegetables as I am in heaven when I go to Beasley's, so I love to get all the starchy eats such as the mac & cheese custard, mashed potatoes, and well, anything else that's considred comfort food. Although I recall that in summer time they have the freshest salad I've ever tasted so I do get a side of that during those times. Who gets excited about salad anyway? This is different. It's salad at its best. And that dressing... oh but I'm getting off topic so back to THIS visit.
I ordered the chicken & waffle dish and a side of mashed potatoes with gravy. They had some soda options that I wasn't familar with so I gave it a go. I orderd the Sun Drop soda. All the eats and the drink were delicious. Crispy fried chicken and the side of honey to drizzle over it. The waffle and those amazing lumpy and flavorful mashed potatoes with gravy. So darn good! I am always happy to venture downtown for some Beasley's noms.
