Ok. The chicken is terrific. Skip the sides. They’ve drowned cabbage in mayo and pretend it’s coleslaw. As a second side they hid some overcooked macaroni in mayo and tell you it’s a salad. Potato salad has a heavy mustard sauce. Where were the spices?...More

Just second best? Well, I'm biased. Key West makes the best fried chicken on the planet. But this is without a doubt the best chicken on the West Coast. That's a fair statement. But this is almost as good. Different -- and for those who...More

Went on the only nice day of the week, glorious. We ordered online, 3 chicken and one rib picnic meal. The chicken was crispy, moist and tasty. Had sides of quinoa and coleslaw. As far as ribs go, pretty average. Same for the sides. Good...More

How can you go wrong with Ad Hoc's fried chicken to go? Order ahead to save yourself the wait in line. Comes with two sides which were quinoa salad and macaroni salad on this occasion. Both were perfectly fine accompaniments to the outstanding fried chicken....More

My husband loves fried chicken, so we were so happy to hear about this place. The setting is very pretty with picnic tables under shade trees. We both ordered the fried chicken (white meat only) and the sides that day were coleslaw and macaroni salad....More

We had a very long wait even though we ordered our food in advance. The girl helping us was very nice, but not sure the food was worth it. The back was very beautiful.

This is one of the best deals going in the valley for lunch. I really recommend getting fried chicken here and not doing the fried chicken meal dinner at Ad Hoc, specialty sodas are nice and the picnic area is a nice break from crowded...More

Yes, we had read all about the chicken... and, honestly, couldn't believe all the hype was worth it. Well... it was... our group of 3 couples all unanimously declared it a favorite (and we are not an easily impressed group). Corn bread was also yummy....More

We enjoyed our lunch of chicken at Addendum. Wonderful outdoor seating. Lots of traffic but still enjoyable. A must if you’re in Yountville.

this "take out" spot behind the notorious Ad Hoc restaurant is a gem! Do not miss the chance to have their fried chicken for lunch. Picnic tables and their wine selection just add to this casual experience.

You will have to check hours online, but as far as Thursday, I know it is open. Orders can be placed through their website.
