I love the freshness of the food at Hitching Post. The cole slaw is always crisp and the fried chicken comes right out of the fryer. The servers feel like family. What more can you ask for when you are really hungry!

When we want a fast take home for chicken, this is the place for us. All of the standard sides: cole slaw, mashed potatoes, beans, etc. Their chicken is never disappointing.

The Hitching Post of one of those great restaurants that seem to be disappearing across the country. They have that wonderful family restaurant vibe that keeps me coming back. The food is delicious and they have a little bit of everything. The fried chicken is my favorite. So crispy and juicy, its simply delicious. I'm getting hungry writing this, so... More

I get something different every time I go here and almost every item is great! Of course the chicken is fantastic, but the specials are usually pretty good too! The people that work there are always so nice and make you feel welcomed.

My mom and I go here about once every 5 weeks. We get our hair done at Great Haircuts afterwards. Sometimes we eat breakfast, sometimes we eat lunch. This is just plain, good old American food. Friendly smiling service, plenty of hot coffee and your eggs any way you want. The chicken livers are the best I have ever eaten... More

Reminds me of going out to eat with my dad back in the early 70s. Dark, rustic/western décor. Obviously good food because the place is always packed. I had a filet, which was very good. The waitress had been working there for a few decades and knew everything! I it nice to go somewhere where things are consistent and quality... More

I was introduced to this place about 5 years ago and have made it a regular stop when I have dinner with my dad. We both LOVE fried chicken and this is the best. We also call ahead and get Chicken for big family get togethers. Everything on their menu is delicious and reasonably priced. The homemade pies are fantastic... More
