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?

Best Chicken Ever! Chicken is the highlight here but other interesting menu items also. Good selection of beers and cocktails. Nice atmosphere. Can be a little noisy inside.

Went for Sunday brunch 10:30am with a group of 8 people: Overall, good food and good value. Would rather try it for lunch than brunch. Pros: Able to get a table for 8 and they seem to have a lot of large table options for reservations. Lots of cool ambiance, great space, great big outdoor area. Portions are huge (!) Their speciality is fried chicken and its delish. Tthat said, not many "traditional" brunch options (more lunch-type options) Cons: Sunday morning brunch parking was VERY limited...had to drive around and eventually parked in a fast food resturant next door.

Very down-to-earth setting with a fantastic southern fried-chicken type of feel. The grits were amazing and the mix of flavor on my chicken sandwich was amazing.

We used to go to Whistle Britches a lot. We stopped for a while. Last night was not great like we remembered. The food was just ok. The server was ok. The chairs were uncomfortable. We have decided for the $$ we spent, there are much better places.

the food is really good here! I usually build from the side menu because the food from the normal entrees are huge and I can’t eat a full plate. It’s a great quality place and is always packed

I really like this place and go here often. However, the noise level can be bad at busy times and the tables are so close together that it's unavoidable.

Everything was perfect. The food, service, and ambiance. I’m glad I accidentally made a reservation in this location instead of the Plano location.

The food was to die for! We had the chicken and waffles and started with the biscuits. I don’t think you could go wrong with anything on the menu though!

Everything I expected. Service great. Food delicious. My party and I arrived about 20 minutes before our reservation time. Lucky, the host was able to sit us a little early. We all appreciated the gesture. We did not wait long to receive our food and the waitress was very much attentive to our needs. Good job and I will definitely be back.

Good food. Reservations are a must on Sundays. Haven’t been any other day. Chicken is a bit bland but still ok. Waffles and biscuits are really good. Restaurant (Frankfort location) is somewhat small and crowded. To get to the restroom you have to walk through the food service area. The chairs aren’t the most comfortable. Maybe this is to keep you from staying too long. Parking is a nightmare when they are busy. All in all we would go back.

Love this place! Love their chicken and waffles! I've been during the weekend and now during the week for a business lunch. The server was super slow with everything and they weren't even that busy. Even though it's not busy and there isn't a line people that work only have an hour for lunch so I'd like to suggest that improvements be made in that area.

The appetizers were very good. My chicken sandwich was tasty. My wife's chicken tacos were very good. A little on the expensive side for fried chicken.

This was our first visit and we will be back. Hillary U. was our server- and she was AWESOME! Very attentive- refilling waters and coffees- and we could have easily gotten her attention if there was anything else we needed. We went just after noon on a Sunday for brunch. The restaurant was very busy, seating guests inside and out. The restaurant was "energic" due to the crowd, but we could still have a conversation. The food was visually appealing and tasted just as good.

Food was amazing. Our only complaint about this place was the uncomfortable chairs. They were hard steel chairs that jabbed a bit on our backs
