Fried Chicken!

Had Large Chicken which consists of 1/2 chicken comes with 3 sides. Reasonably priced. Good chicken. Had Hot sauce as a side which looks like Spanish rice. Small quaint restaurant.

Hopocan Gardens has been serving chicken dinners since the 40s, when a full meal cost only one dollar. The price is about 10 times that but you get enough food to bring home your meal for the next day! Make sure to eat their famous hot sauce, which is a spicy tomato rice peculiar to Barberton. No frills in this... More

The chicken people come from out of town to come to Barberton, Ohio just for the chicken. It is very good. And if you don't like chicken they do have other things like fish and hamburgers. The help is very nice as well. They also have a very different coleslaw (made with vinegar) and the hot sauce is to die... More

Sunday, late afternoon, we were hungry and in Barberton. Choose a chicken house! This time it was Hopocan Gardens. The restaurant was not as crowded as I expected, but the sub-zero temperatures outside probably had a lot to do with it! We ordered 2 large chicken dinners. My husband's was with fries, coleslaw and hot rice. Mine was fries, hot... More

It was dinner time and we decided to go out and invited my mom. Our choice for dinner was Hopocan Gardens. As usual, the chicken was delicious! We ordered the hot sauce, coleslaw and green beans as our sides. Also, ordered a side of fries to go along with the meal. Our daughter tried the grilled ham and cheese sandwich... More

Hopocan Gardens is a unique chicken. I love the stuff myself, combine that with some hot sauce and some vinegary cole slaw your are set to go for the best chicken dinner ever. Highly recommend or at least worth a try.

There are several places in Barberton to go for Chicken, but this is the Best. Food is always good, and on Monday they have their regular, Dark or White, for $6.00.

Can't do it every day or you'd be dead. But if you're gonna do chicken dinner, why settle for less than the best. Get extra hot sauce.

Every time. It feels like home. Fries leave something to be desired. And the hot sauce is hit or miss on the consistency. But damn do I love it.

The restaurant is older and the front seating is uncomfortable for anyone who is plus size or has a problem getting up/down. FOOD - there are other things on the menu but we always have the 'traditional' Barberton Chicken meal. HOT _ TASTY_PLENTIFUL, going back every week for more. I would like to suggest to those who might be new.... More
