Hen Quarter Prides itself on its Southern Fare. The logo even states “Southern Fare, Free Range Cocktails” I must say, their food is really tasty. On my most recent visit to the Silver Spring location, I met the lovely staff, led by Jacqueline, who helped set a warm atmosphere at the front of the house. Walking into Hen Quarter, I felt comfortable and welcomed. The background music made me dance on my way to my table.
The Silver Spring location is perfect for a date night or a night out with friends in any season of the year. There is free garage parking, plus shopping and a movie theater all in the same complex.
Now to the food. Let’s start with the biscuits. The biscuits are thick & hearty homemade biscuits, honey! THey are served with fresh churned honey pearl butter and fig jam. Delicious!
For dinner, I ordered the Hen Quarter Special which is two pieces of Southern Fried Chicken, Collard Greens, Smashed Yukon Potatoes, and a Biscuit. The Fried Chicken was good, although, I prefer my chicken with a bit more seasoning salt. (Although, I understand the need to limit the amount of salt for all patrons). The collard greens were cooked perfectly. They had the right amount of spice. I was surprised by the amount of flavor in the potatoes. The potatoes were mashed with skin on, and were so moist and tasty, they almost outshined the rest of the meal! The Hen Quarter Special portion size was just right!
Overall, I enjoyed the food. I will return. I look forward to trying out more menu items.
