At Whistle Britches, we’re all about chicken. In 2016, Chef Omar Flores 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?

Our family of 6 decided to meet for an early dinner at 4pm on a Thursday. Because of that we felt like we had the place to ourselves because only one table was occupied. Our server was very helpful and patient as we were initially visiting amongst ourselves instead of checking out the menu. She was fast with our drinks and appetizer choices...Deviled Eggs and Black Bean Hummus - both were excellent! Our orders were out in a short time as well. Two in our group had Chicken Fried Steaks, one had Chicken & Waffles & Cornbread, one had Shrimp & Grits, and one had sides...Brussel Sprouts and Grits. Everyone was very pleased with the flavors and portions were large. No one left hungry and as a matter of fact, two in our group took home leftovers. Highly recommend! (btw...that cornbread could be classified as a dessert!!! So good!)

Fantastic food, especially the chicken. Interesting and unique menu items. Both the Bloody Mary and espresso martini were excellent as well. Value is average but the food, service and ambiance make up for it. Will definitely be back.

Visit on Sunday Sept. 26th We went for a late lunch before a DFW drop off. We were seated immediately. Service was great. Food was great. Only complaint (not really a complaint) it was a little cold due to the A/C working efficiently. We will definitely be back.

The food and service were outstanding!

The experience was ruined by two tables of families with young children who were out of control. At one table the children were screaming at the top of their lungs. The children at the other table were running wild and making a lot of noise.

Parents, please control your children or leave them at home. You ruin the dining experience for everyone if you can’t control your kids.

My husband loved his chicken and biscuit- but I was surprised that chips came with it for breakfast - why not fruit or potatoes?

This is a great new, super casual place right downtown Southlake! Take the kids or meet friends for dinner after a game. The biscuits were great. Ribs, just okay... We will definitely become regulars. The chicken items look delicious and we will have to try those next time!

The decor and ambiance is really cute - you don't really feel like you're in Southlake. Our service was perfect - I was busy talking and simply ask for our server to "bring me something I should try". The chicken 'n waffles w/ jalapeño syrup were on point. And, of course, sweet tea (as if there's any other way). Not only will I be back, but I think you should stop in, too.

So glad my son ordered the chicken nuggets. That might have been my favorite. Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. Great flavor! We also tried the Aristocrat which was delicious with the garlic butter fries and Mac and cheese. I was most excited to try the deviled eggs, but they were just ok. Seemed like they were pre-made and the egg white was just a little too firm. Had ok flavor, but I had high expectations. The bees knees drink was very refreshing.

The food is outstanding! Our party ate biscuits and fried green tomatoes for appetizers. Both were steamy hot and really tasty. Our meals were the
Love Me Tenders, chicken tacos, chicken & waffles, mac&cheese with chicken.
--delicious and plenty left
to take home.

The service was friendly & professional, from the hostess to the waitstaff. Atmosphere- casual and family-friendly.

We would give a five-star review, but the time to receive our meal was a bit long. We weren't asked for our meal order until nearly finished with appetizers. That made the wait long. We also waited a while for the waitress to return our card/receipt, but found out later there was an error that had to be corrected.

Overall, we would highly recommend the Whistle Britches Southlake location.
