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?

I had read the reviews on the great food at whistle britches so my expectations were already high. That said the chicken and waffles with the jalapeño syrup were off the charts amazing. I would definitely come back when ever in town. It is a good thing I don’t live in Dallas or I would eat here frequently and weigh 1,000 pounds. Honestly, Best chicken and waffles I’ve ever eaten

Taylor works the bar 11-4 and gives exceptional attentive service. Squash fritters and fried green tomatoes much more than memorable for apoetizers. $5 substantial well drinks all day and night a real plus. Yummo!

This was our first visit & we were very disappointed. Service was very slow. Noise level was very loud. No ambience. There were four in our party. One person was very pleased with their order of Fried Chicken with Waffle. The others ordered : 2 Fried Chicken/biscuit (only ok), Sur Mix A lot( (chicken wasn’t very good & poor presentation). Price were quite high for fried chicken. We do not plan to return.

The only reason I can't give 5 stars overall, and I'd love to is because the wait for our food was really long. The kitchen was backed up and I believe short staffed maybe. A manager finally came over and offered us biscuits while we waited and we were so glad because we were starving! This was my first time and the food was delicious just hate the service was slow. I'll definitely be coming back!

"I love the upbeat fun vibe of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Chorizo hash (- chorizo vegetarian)was amazing with great flavor and perfectly cooked veggies and spices. My daughter had the chicken and biscuits which she loved. She thought the chicken was moist and not over cooked. The deviled eggs were uniquely done with pickled combinations worked well. Service was well-timed overall and friendly.

I really enjoyed the place. However I was REALLY enjoying the place until y’all allowed a couple with two dogs to come in and let the dogs sniff every bodies table and lick a few. I’m highly allergic to dogs/cats so I had to quickly finish and still suffered from sneezing and itchy throat afterward. However I will still recommend your restaurant to anybody and I already have! Love the setting .

Brought my friend for lunch as she loves good fried chicken. You didn’t disappoint either of us. Generous servings. Took some home for another lunch. My grandson enjoyed the other half of my Buffalo chicken sandwich! Only problem is its gets rather noisy!

My husband and I were very excited to try out the fried chicken @ Whistle Britches. When we arrived, the place was really busy and there was a live band that was singing Folk music. The doors/walls were open and I was really excited about our dining experience. We were seating very quickly and had time to plan what drinks we wanted to order before a server showed up. A little later we had a different server show up and take our food order which included an app, sandwich, and side. About halfway through our drinks, the sandwich and side showed up via a food runner... no app. We were never checked on by our server so were unable to correct the missing app oversight. And had to wave down a server to get our check and a to-go box. Needless to say - we were a little dis-satisfied. The sandwich and fries were good but I won't be hurrying back.

We LOVE Whistle Britches. Amazing food that the adults and the kids love. Really tough to go wrong with anything on the menu. I'm generally not a fan of sweet/hot and sweet/savory combos, but there's a way that Whistle Britches balances their sweet/hot options so that even I like it. Tough to explain, but it's tasty.
My one comment for awareness, so not really a complaint, they like live music at this location. There is also zero acoustic dampening in the restaurant, so it's very lively even when the music is relatively muted. That can be an issue for some, so just be aware.
Their patio seating is outstanding when the weather is nice too :-)

This was the third time I have dined for lunch as it is located by my workplace. Each time I try something new. My goal is to experience the entire menu but that is impossible. Although the seasonal sides are changed throughout the year and are amazing, I have a difficult time not order redundantly because what I had previously was so good. The service is top notch, friendly, and not overly zealous while you are conversing or chewing. Highly recommended. See you next week Whistle Britches!

The Dallas location dining experience was horrible compared to the Plano location. The wait staff was not as attentive but the ambiance was good overall. Our waitress got our order wrong and did nothing to compensate for her actions. Probably wont return to that location and will not recommend to anyone. Did not see the same menu items at the Dallas location as with the Plano location that I was looking for.

First time diner and probably the last. Service was extremely slow, and I don’t think it was for any reason except our waiter just wasn’t very good. I asked if I could sub a different side for what it came with and was told sure, only to find that I received both and paid full price for the new side, which I would’ve shared with a friend had he answered me correctly about subbing to begin with.

Food was good. But it came out so quick you could tell it wasn’t freshly made. Food came out before the bar had time to give us a can of beer... but that being said the food was great! And their home made sauces are superb
Service was a bit slow like when you wanted to ask for something.

We had reservations for brunch but was about 10 minutes late due to Easter service/traffic. Hostess seemed upset with us and didn't want to acknowledge us. Fortunately, someone else was standing next to her and sat us down. After this little blip, the rest of the experience was great. Waitress was friendly and provided great service even with the busy crowd. Food was yummy, especially the jalapeño cornbread!

I actually made my reservations at the wrong Whistle Britches. I needed the one by the Willow Bend Mall instead but I have been to the one on Frankford for my mom's 74th birthday dinner and my siblings and I enjoyed it very much including my 2 nephews. The one at the mall was just as great. My friends from Memphis, Tn actually told me about it even tho I only lived like 5 minutes from the one on Frankford. I will be going very often since I love you all salads and chicken and waffles. The LEMONADE IS SIMPLY THE BEST.

I LOVE their food! The CHICKEN!!! Oh man the chicken.... Sooooo good! We did order an appetizer that we never received but the server was never just standing around so I'm sure she was just super busy. She was so polite so we didn't mind too much. We just thought they were short handed. Will def be going back! The food, the ambiance, the service overall... Love this place!
