fried chicken almost as good as Grandma's

Ad Hoc/Addendum is a must do while in Napa. The chicken was outstanding, but the sides were disappoining the day we went there. Potato salad and pasta salad. Ugh. With the amazing fresh vegetables available in Napa they served two mayo-y starches? Not cool. Even a boring green salad would have been... read more

I was fortunate to join friends, one who works at Far Niente for a tour and tasting, preceded by lunch in a gazebo. I told my fellow diners I would pick us up box lunches at Addendum because I can never say no to fried chicken which certainly was the star of our meal--crisp, seasoned and rosemary-scented breading surrounding juicy,...

Hidden gem. If you are looking for a quick, casual, tasty picnic environment this is your place. We ate the fried chicken and he ribs. Both were delicious!

Saturday afternoon was very busy, had to wait on line for 30 minutes. Delivered food to outdoor tables. Food was excellent! Would go again. Pulled pork sandwich and ribs with sides and 2 drinks $40

If you should find yourself in Napa, make sure you get a visit to Thomas Keller's Addendum behind Ad Hoc. It's all about the fried chicken, and it's a life altering experience. For the extremely reasonable price of $16.50, you will be treated to an exquisitely prepared half chicken fried to perfection. We also had the quinoa salad and a... More

The chicken is delicious and was worth us driving up from SF just to pick it up since we keep missing it when they have it at Ad Hoc! Love the spices and rosemary!

Fried chicken for lunch in a box behind Ad Hoc at Addendum is a joy for anyone who really appreciates good fried chicken. Superb batter with succulent chicken. The two sides we got with the chicken were okay but nothing to rave about.

The chicken was delicious. The salads were very different. The atmosphere was very layed back. Could have used a little more shade as it was warm outside.

Addendum is on several lists for the best fried chicken in America. I was a little skeptical given its locale to the South, and I have had several great fried chicken places in the South (Gus's in Memphis, Mrs. Wilke's in Savannah, etc). I cant say this is the best I have every tried, but it is up there with... More
