Addendum is a little shack behind Ad Hoc that serves lunch Thurs-Sat during the warmer months. Choices are Thomas Keller's unbelievably succulent and flavorful (marinated) buttermilk fried chicken -- the key is in the herb marinade -- or one other dish, often a BBQ pork combo (really good, but nothing like the chicken. The first time I bit into this... More

My friend insisted we go here while in Napa Valley, she raved about the red velvet (seriously!) fried chicken she had there while on a work retreat. We went at about 11:00 am on a Saturday, apparently you have to go early so they don't run out. The special for the day I went was rosemary friend chicken. It was... More

addendum good fried chicken, good ribs, didn't care for the pulled pork. Nothing special about the macaroni salad or coleslaw-- both a bit on the bland side. $15 for 3 pieces of fried chicken or $15 for three rib lets & small pulled pork sandwich. Way overpriced when you realize its $5 per piece of chicken.

When in Napa nine months ago, we couldn't squeeze in a trip to Addendum to trying the fried chicken. It is only opened Thursdays-Saturday. This time my group of four decided to make time for this "shack" and try the infamous fried chicken. None of us enjoyed it thoroughly. Once we got past the price of $17 (tax included) for... More

Love the Fried Chicken. It's a bit on the pricey side, but worth it. The BBQ is good, not the best I've ever had but still worth it.

Thomas Keller is probably my favorite chef, so naturally I was excited to eat at Ad Hoc while visiting Yountville. I loved the scene and the idea...(fried Chicken from one of the world's most premiere chefs)...but was very disappointed at the food. I actually didn't think the chicken, nor any of the sides were any good at all. Its a... More

We called ahead to order the friend chicken and ribs. It was expensive but very good fried chicken. I really enjoyed the potato salad.

Located behind Ad Hoc in a small building surrounded by picnic tables under redwood trees. Stand in line, place your order through a small window and find a table. Food arrives quickly, hot and ready to eat. Sides include small amount of potato salad and cold slaw. Nothing special or complex. Fried chicken, pulled pork and ribs are very good,... More

Great fried chicken. Call ahead and avoid the line. Side dishes ok but nothing to write about. Not sure why reviews have to be 100 characters if you can say it in less.
