“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We had breakfast here and the food was terrific. I like eggs and order them over medium. Most places the eggs are anything but over medium! Here I got them exactly right! They were fried to perfection and everything else was great too. The coffee was even good! It wasn't instant and it wasn't brewed to death! I would highly recommend the Hen House to everyone.

“Little but fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

It's a great little stop. The food is country-style - tasty when traveling. Comfort-food goodness and the prices are SWEET!

“Waiter Very Good; Food very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

We decided to have lunch here after seeing the sign on the highway. Hen House was one of my family's favorites when I was growing up. The waiter was very good and attentive, but the food was more than disappointing. The milk was sour, the cook made white meat chicken instead of dark (good, though!), the ice cream had freezer burn, and the bottom crust of the pie was not cooked through. My grandson told me about the roaches and big spiders in the restroom. We won't be returning to Hen House. It also really needs some sprucing up -- it looks old and dated and worn.

Nothing fancy, but you can't go wrong with the fried chicken
