In passing through Springfield I stopped to stay at the Motel 6 on Toronto Road. Right next store sat an interesting restaurant called the Hen House that looked very promising. Immediately upon entering I was greeted by a very friendly waitress, Lisa. As she sat me down she told me the nightly special was all you can eat Fried Chicken, 2 sides and a fresh yeast roll for $8.99 - there was no reason to look at the menu because with a name like the Hen House I was in the mood for some good chicken. The quality of the food was amazing. The chicken was something like your Grandma would fix for Sunday dinner. The crust was very crispy, the seasonings just right and the the pieces were large and juicy. I demolished 5 pieces of chicken. The fresh yeast roll was very large and delicious. The Macaroni and Cheese, as well as the Mash Potatoes with White Gravy were also top quality. Kudos to Kelly for serving up some of the best Fried Chicken I have had in a while. If there is any better in the region I would be surprised. I will surely make this a regular stop on my travels through this area. Thanks for a great meal and thanks to Lisa for making me feel at home.
