Neighbors Tom and Christi invited us to go with them to the Holton House restaurant and bed and breakfast in Holton, Kansas, this evening for fried chicken.
Tom knows fried chicken. I can’t tell it like he does, but I believe he has eaten at most every chicken restaurant in eastern Kansas and beyond. With those credentials, he says Holton House is the best.
It wasn’t too busy tonight, but our reservations were for 7:30 pm, so the rush might have been over. The service was exceptional as so often is the case in small towns.
Almost immediately after being seated, we were served, family style, a bowl of slaw, cottage cheese and a small platter of fruit. We were no sooner finished with this part of the meal when out came a piled high platter of chicken.
Although I don’t have the background to back it up, the chicken was exceptional. Since we were the last to be served, they sent two pieces for each couple home. The real test will be when we eat our leftovers cold.
For dessert we received a small piece of chocolate cake. I didn’t think I would be able to eat it, but after one bite, it was so good, it just slipped down.
There is no doubt the entire menu is based on Brookville’s well known restaurant. I think it is just as good too.
