At Whistle Britches, we’re all about chicken. In 2016, we had one thing in mind – serve the tastiest, juiciest and crunchiest bird in town. Our pickle brined bird, farm-fresh ingredients and soulful cooking will leave you wanting more. We believe comfort food never goes out of style. Our scratch kitchen is always baking fresh buttermilk biscuits and some of the best chicken sandwiches in town. Couple all that with a great local craft beer selection and inventive cocktails, you soon realize why we came up with the name Whistle Britches. We like to draw a lot of attention to ourselves, and we’re OK with that! So if you haven’t stopped in yet, what are you waiting for?

We love going to Whistle Britches. The food and drinks are fantastic. We especially like the chicken sandwiches. My favorites are the Auntie Louann and the Pitmaster. We've only been there for dinner but the atmosphere is great. Service was solid as well. They also have a lovely patio area outside.

Great food - more than we could ever eat. We took half home for the next day. Our server was attentive and quick. The only drawback is that it was a chilly blustery day and we were seated on a patio enclosed only by plastic sheeting. It was too chilly there for my liking and had to wear a coat during dinner.

Hey, great food - the CFS was great loved it -this place by far is better than id claire. The waiter was very service oriented despite being Valentines Day and being very busy the service was outstanding. The food is great - the biscuits are the bomb.

We were very excited about going to WB. Out of the 8 things we ordered, the biscuits were the only thing worth eating. It was very disappointing. Especially the deviled eggs, which were just boiled eggs, sliced in half, with dressing on top of them.

They have great food and unique atmosphere but plan on going when they aren't busy! The service from the hostess and waiter/waitress staff severely lacks when they are on a wait and busy. If you make a reservation through open table prepare to wait at least an additional 20 mins to get seated.

For busy times they need more wait staff and better hostesses that know how to handle clean tables and seating.

When we arrived the room was maybe one-third full. We had reserved a table for two but asked if we could sit at the bar. The hostesses graciously agreed. The bartender and bar back were busy but still got our drinks made and our food ordered in a timely manner. It definitely became noisier as the room filled, but we had no problem conversing. As before, the food was delicious. We will go again and have already recommended WB to some family who will be in town for Spring Break.

Always fun to watch little kids scream and yell while the parents chomp away on fried chicken and cocktails.
Food is always top notch and service sometimes gets slow but the amusements provide ample distraction

Stayed a night in Dallas, made the drive to this place and was TOTALLY worth the drive. Big portions but if you share, you'll regret not having ordered your own plate.

Came here for a friend’s birthday brunch. It was too loud to have a conversation. Our coffee orders arrived later than our food. Food was good but not worth coming back due to ambience and service.

Not sure I’ve had better chicken since moving to TX
Highly recommend, encourage to use Open Table and make a reservation - we watched quite a few groups arrive only to leave for long wait time. We’ll be back for certain

Pretty dang good food! Portions are certainly large and couldn’t finish mine. Service was a little too attentive- felt like we were constantly being checked on, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it felt a bit rushed. I love how unique this place is, the decor is awesome and the music is a 5/5 (I love some Wild Child!!) Thanks for a great Sunday brunch y’all!

I have been to both this location and the Willowbend location, and I think I prefer the latter. The menu did not seem as exciting as the one that Willowbend has to offer. Also, I specified that I would need a high chair for my toddler. My friend arrived first and reminded the staff about needing a high chair, but even by the time I arrived (15 minutes later), they still had not provided one. We could not find our server and tried to flag down other staff, but we were unable to do so. Finally after standing and waiting next to our table for another 10 minutes, we finally were able to get the attention of a manager who brought us a high chair. And then on top of all this, the high chair ended up being wet. Overall, the food and atmosphere was great, but the service could have been way better.
